I have been on a diet / health kick for nearly two years, i have lost 4 stone and have i would say 10lbs to go. I have a layer of fat around my stomach which is visible. For the past year or so, i have without luck been trying to lose it. From heavy exercising (HIIT, weights etc) and controlled eating (i intermittent fast 16:8).
Should i just accept my shape? is a flat stomach something not everyone can achieve? i wonder if i am wired to be this shape and size.
I was taking extra protein through diet and powders as well as bcaa and creatine. Problem was, a routine blood test revealed issues which the doc thought was related to what i was taking, so asked me to stop taking for 3 weeks and the blood retest came back as an all clear. So i have binned all that stuff and am looking to get my protein etc through foods.
