got a new worry, maybe . got one of those scales that measures the fat. me. an old coot nearing 60 years old has body fat about 28-29 % i am 5'8 & 1/2", weigh 153 lbs and work out a couple times a week. ride my bike to work daily in good weather, plus go on longer rides 2-3 times a week. winter time i ride an excer bike and still work out most people i know think i am pretty skinny and i still have a pretty demanding job. dont know if i should take this measurement too seriously since i am in very good overall health, non smoker and only drink in low levels. realizing i am not a fine tuned athlete, how can i lower that % 4-5 points if i need to ?? it must be diet, related i assume ! eat ice cream about once a week and my daily sweets is usually 2-3 bite size pieces of chocolate . i DO still drink 2% milk and use it on my cereal. it is a new challange to me to try to lower this per centage of fat, if need be. any tips on how to do this ?? !! more tuna and lean chicken and pork ?? or ?? thanks to all of you knowledgeable people for responding !
