Why Men and Women Store and Burn Fat Differently | Mark's Daily Apple

I read this article recently and it brought to light something I've been thinking about a lot lately. This article states women store fat in their thighs and heinys and why we do so. All my life before pregnancy and during, this was certainly the case for me. HOWEVER, since pregnancy I have stored fat in my stomach that does *not* want to budge. I've always wondered why this is??? I'm 6 months in to nursing, and the fat on the rest of my body is whittling down, but not so much on my stomach. Is it a cortisol thing? Stress of pregnancy still present in my body? What?? Also, I saw a LOT of women commenting similar complaints about "non typical" female fat storage. What's going on???
