Post genetic make-up

I have really chunky legs, my mom says it's a genetic makeup, is there anyway I could get rid of them? If so how.

Is it mostly your thighs? If so, many women have that. Personally, I would classify it as an evolutionary adjustment - so that is extra fat available when a woman is carrying a child.

Exercises concentrating on the legs may help somewhat.
