: My body fat percentage is 23.1 waist 13, Back 14, arms 19. As you can see my arms are carrying more fat than
: the rest of my body. Any suggestions??? I do cardio (4 times a week)and weight training (2 to 3 times a week).
Go "low fat," i.e. read labels on food products you buy and avoid those high in saturated fats. I went on a "low fat" diet 8 weeks ago because my cholesterol was way too high. In those 8 weeks (I also jog 30 to 35 miles per week) I lost 23 pounds and lowered my cholesterol 106 points, just by going drastically reducing my fat intake. (I also used Niacin, 1500 mgs. per day.) However, I feel better than ever and am running/jogging much, much better than the "plodding" I was reduced to previously because of my 20+ lbs. of excess weight. To paraphrase Horace Greeley: "Go Low Fat, young lady."
