my Query is...
Proceed with your query.
I have been going to gym regularly for muscle growth and fat reduction for the past 6 months...
I have not been able to reduce belly fat..
there has been an improvement in muscles..
what do you suggest to achieve both fat looss and muscle growth efficiently
btw i'm a lacto-ovo-vegetarian
May I know your current height, weight and waist circumference?
height-167 cms, weight-69 kg, waist- 34in
Do you have any other medical illness?
none doctor...my health is pretty good..I hardly fall sick
Let me brief you.
Your anthropometry measurements including waist circumference are in ideal limits and I do not find any signs of over weight.
However it is possible that you have localized fat collection in the abdominal region.
Many find such localized masses hard to resolve.
But eventually with good exercise, body toning and diet it resolves.
As your current weight and waist circumference are in ideal limits, I do not suggest any changes in your dietary pattern.
Continue the exercise you do. Add abdominal toning exercise such as sit ups.
*Your gym trainer can give more information about these exercises.
Avoid high carb diet like too oily, too sweet diet.
They may take time to resolve.
i'm currently concentrating more on weights than cardio...is that a problem?
Cardioexercises are must for any one looking to lose fat and weight.
You may spend a few minutes (half an hour may be) on the cardio.
Discuss about abdominal tonning exercise with your gym trainer
He/she can suggest some exercise that will help you.
A low calorie, low fat diet with these exercise should eventually help you achieving your target.
Have you followed what I suggested?
Do you have any other query?
no doctor...thanks a lot for your help
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
