ask our dietitian your question today


I work out 3 to 4 times a week and now I have amazing muscles that I never even knew I could have, but my body fat is stuck at 22%. What can i do to lose even just 2% more body fat without losing too much of the muscle that I have worked so hard to obtain? – Dara



Hmm, that’s a tricky one that everyone would like to achieve. Nutritionally, maintaining calories while reducing sugar, alcohol & refined starch means replacing that lost energy with protein.  To keep calories up and body fat % down, you need to eat lean trimmed poultry and meats, egg whites, high-fiber whole grains, unsweetened non-fat milk products and plenty of produce. – Debbie J., MS, RD
