I have a couple of questions and things I need to tips on and I think hearing the knowledge of others would be a big help. I am 24 yrs old and 5'10, 165-170lbs
1) I am a soccer player and because I do a lot of cardio, my metabolism is very high and I am ALWAYS hungry. I don't like starving myself and know that I need to ingest a lot of calories to sustain my muscle but I find that my hunger is never satisfied and at times I think I wind up overeating. In structuring some sort of food plan, I find that most of the articles on here are for guys who want to get bigger..I on the other hand want to get leaner and drop weight.
I dont know if this is possible but is there a way for me to ingest less calories yet feel "full" from eating my meals. How many calories does my body need per day based on my activity level?
2) I noticed in my ab development that my upper ab region is a lot more visible than my lower ab region. I thought fat distribution in the body is more or less evenly distributed but I guess Im wrong. Is there a way to work the lower abs more so that they become more visible? Also, how can I make the grooves in between each "box" in my abs be deeper and more defined.
3) Lately when doing lower abs, I get a sharp pain on my left side a couple of inches away from the left side of my groin. I got it checked out and the doctor said that it was not a hernia...any idea of what it could be and how to heal it?
I thank you in advance for all of your responses. Please contribute in a meaningful way if you have some applicable help.
