Alright, so hear this out.
I go to the gym once every two days and keep myself pretty active. I run for about 30 minutes and do light weights (toning) and other exercises. I was doing weights a couple of months ago but stopped because I didn't want to get "big". I'm a guy, and I was noticing I was getting bigger.
So my aim/s are to LOWER body fat. The problem is right now, I don't know what my body fat % is.
But I do know that my weight has gone up from 62kg to about 66kg!!!
Now, that's bad, but I don't feel I've gained weight. That is, when I'm at the gym, when I'm running in particular, I feel fitter than ever. I'm really comfortable and feel strong.
So they say muscle weighs more than fat. So I hope that the Kilos I've gained are muscle rather than fat.
BUT the problem is I know I have a lot more fat than I need/should have because all I have to do is look at my abs. Hehe.
So the questions are:
- Has anyone measured their body fat with a professional like with those tweezers? How as it? Is it accurate?
- How do you LOWER body fat? What are the best strategies?
Oh, also I should say that although, I exercise often, my eating habits are bad. Like I live with my family and eat what they cook and also we have a lot of chocolates and other junk lying about, so I always get tempted.
My resolution for summer is to eat only salads and fruits and other fresh food.
- How do you control what you eat? How do make yourself eat only the good foods?
