I am 6"2 tall, 92 Kgs. I am not fat;
Based on the resarches I have been doing on the internet, I need to reduce cardio and give more importance to strength training to build muscles. My body fat percentage is about 24.
Many say muscles help lose fat but there re some who say i need to first reduce my fat to build muscles.
I am looking for advice on diet (can I take whey protein) and exercises and any considerations. I am from XXXXXXX and although I ocassionally eat non-veg, I am mostly vegetarian or "eggatarian".
I have borderline cholesterol when I checked but a year back and doctors suggested exercise and controlled diet instead of medicines.
Decrease calorie intake and increase fluid intake.
Thanks for posting your query.
To decrease the belly you need to lose fat. Do decrease the calorie intake and increase intake of fruits and salads. To decrease the belly, abdominal strengthening exercises will also help.
You can take whey protein but do decrease the daily total calorie intake. Overall weight reduction will help in the long term.
I hope this answers your query.
