Do you have a low body fat %? I feel like it is very important because you might not weigh a lot but still look fat/bigger than, for example, a person who weighs the same but looks so much leaner because of that.

Do you have any tips how to lower it?? Besides losing weight only. On what it depends?

I was in the lowish 20ā€™s but now Iā€™m about 30 thanks to alcohol and not running as much

It all comes down to genetics and exercise. I have low body fat from working out / training hard so much.

muscle burns fat so iā€™d say building muscle or toning your body is the best answer for getting rid of body fat. look at olympic swimmers, the need muscle to swim but need to be slim so they can glide through the resistance of the water. muscle also increases your metabolisim. if you are wanting an idea of a workout, id say lots of cardio. boxing is fun and really great for muscle, running would have to be a couple days a week if not just walk for 30 mins at a brisk pace. diet wise, avoiding sugary and processed foods is very important and the only fats you should be eating are healthy fats like avocados and nuts (in moderation because fats are higher in calories)

hope i helped

Stay safe.

I'm 24% rn, and I consider myself to be objectively average but probably kinda chunky in ED views.

I always think about marathon runners. They are generally very lean, no fat, and skinny. So endurance training and exercise is key. Eating enough calories and protein to maintain that muscle is also essential.
