Bit of background- I'm 26, 5 foot 10, 180 lbs. I train 4-5 x times a week, incorporating mainly sprinting and compound lifts.
Had a recent body stat analysis tell me I'm 10.5% at my 180 lbs, but it all seems to cling to my belly and it's really bothering me aesthetically. My chest, shoulders, back, legs all look tight and muscular and I can feel some hard abs underneath the belly, but it just seems to stick out and from the side on just ruins the efforts of everything I'm training for.
Does anyone have any general tips for the belly fat? I'm expecting to hear "lose weight" but I'm not sure that I should be having these issues at 11%. Could it be something hormonal? An intolerance to something causing bloating? FWIW I'm not having any gas/diorhhea, although I'm definitely lactose intolerant. I stear clear of dairy produce and my whey is always isolate. Could it be a milk protein allergy?
