I want a six-pack! How can I my diet and nutrition help me lower my body fat percentage so I can get ab definition?
I need some major help in how to lose and bring down my body fat percentage. To date, I have lost 25 lbs. I work out 6 times a week. I’m thin, but now I want a six-pack and I don’t have one yet. I was told that my body fat needs to be lower in order for me to get the six-pack that I am so desperately trying to achieve. I eat very healthy every day, and my body fat at this time is 23%. How do I get it down? Help, I want a six-pack! – Alicia
Abdominal fat is tough to lose when you’re already at an ideal weight. Being 23% body fat is good for women, so you are on the right track for your health and fitness. Though you can’t target specific areas for fat loss, a good amount of core work and cardio can keep your ab muscles toned. Tune-up your diet by limiting refined flour, salt, added sugars and alcohol, as these are often big belly culprits. Drink plenty of water, eat plenty of produce and consider drinking green tea. - Debbie J., MS, RD
