My tips for lowering your percentage: 

After recently lowering my body fat from 18% to 12% with mostly following a healthy diet. I would like to share some tips to help you lower yours.

  1. Sleep- Making sure you get 7-9 hours sleep will be enough time for your body and Muscle to recover. 
  2. Stay hydrated- Everyone probably nows the benefits of consuming enough water. Being hydrated keeps everything in your body working, and your metabolism.  I also found that swapping tea and coffee to a green tea was helpfull. 
  3. Do more Cardio- Adding more cardio to your excersise routine will help you burn fat.
  4. Eat fruit and vegetables, chicken, salmon, eggs. 
  5. Don’t eat as much fatty foods- This might seem simple, but really cutting the bad fats out of your diet will really help. 
  6. Don’t stop eating/maybe even eat more- Yes, that’s right eat more. Having small but frequent meals, adding vegetables and the “good food” to your meal will help you lower your body fat percentage .
  7. Lower sugar intake from foods and drinks- don’t drink dizzy drinks and eat to much sugary foods, as to much sugar will turn in to fat.
  8. Alcohol- Alcohol contains a lot of calories, a glass of wine can contain between 90-150 calories.

I hope you found this useful.
