NFL star Nick Bosa says his fish-heavy diet ithe reason tln

San Francisco 49ers Nick Bosa says he has the lowest body fat percentage on his whole team.

Bosa says his high-protein diet that emphasizes lean fish and chicken is the reason why.

Other sports stars like Tom Brady and Kevin Love have also spoken about the benefits of a fish-heavy diet.

San Francisco 49ers star Nick Bosa said he has the lowest body fat percentage on his team, and he believes his new high-protein diet is the reason for it.

Speaking during aninterview with NFL Network,the 24-year-old Pro Bowl defensive end said every player on his team underwent a Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan this offseason, which measures body mass index and how much of a persons mass is fat and how much is muscle. His body fat percentage was the lowest on the team.

For perspective: Bosa is on the same team as slender wide receiver Travis Benjamin, who is almost 100 lbs lighter at 175 lbs, and yet has a higher body fat percentage.

Bosa, who weighs 266 lbs, plays a position on the defensive line that is conventionally known to have bulkier players who embrace weight as an advantage against opponents, and are not typically seen as lean. In Bosas case, more of his weight comes from muscle.

Bosa believes his lean physique with a body fat percentage of 3% when he was checked in August, according toNBC Sports Bay Area has translated to results this season. He racked up 15.5 sacks compared to just nine total in his first two seasons, and made his second Pro Bowl.

Bosa says he got particularly lean after taking up a strict, protein-heavy diet this year part of his recovery from a season-ending ACL injury early in the 2020 season. During his rehab, he hired a private chef to help get his body back to the best physical level.

Ive got an amazing chef, Chef Anna, shout out. Shell come in two days a week and cook for almost the whole week, Bosa said. Theres a really good fish market right near my house so she gets fresh fish from there. Theres poke, ceviche, delicious fish, chicken, steak, and then the salad she makes to accompany them are top-notch.

Following a high-protein diet is an effective way to reduce body fat and build lean muscle, especially when following a diet like Bosas which is heavy on lean protein and vegetables.
