Body Fat percentage is, quite literally, the percentage of your body that is made up of fat. Fitness – slim, healthy and glowing, many of those fitness models that are on the front of your ‘health’ magazine probably fall at the lower end of this bracket.
The caliper should be placed 1 cm away from thumb and finger, perpendicular to skinfold, and halfway between crest and base of fold. Take duplicate measures at each site and retest if duplicate measurements are not within 1 to 2 mm. Rotate through measurement sites or allow time for skin to regain normal texture and thickness.
The easiest and cheapest way to get a fairly accurate result is to check with your local gym or GP surgery to see if they have a set of body fat measuring scales for you to use. Eat fewer calories – whilst calorie counting itself is not required while using The Fit Mum Formula’s methods, the high protein and fibre, reduced sugar and starch methods make it difficult to overeat since protein and fibre are very filling.
Reduce your carbohydrate intake (carbs turn to sugar, so on that note reduce your sugar intake too). What we do…We create online, personalised, exercise and nutritional programmes which fuel your metabolism, burn fat, and transform your body shape. As i know there is no such thing as Plateau, but you do need a refeed day where you consume high carb above maintenance to drop that last pound of fat. You are going to look like a skeleton if you drop below 10% BF because your lack of muscle. I'm sorry dude, but beach bodies are made up of more than just candy, noodles, and peanut butter. Look at the first graph in this article below that shows one can start shaving months off of life expectancy if your BMI drops below 22.
If you really are serious then the first thing you need to do is stop what you are doing and reverse diet to a normal intake.


If you haven't started a heavy lifting program start now and as you add back in more calories you should start gaining back some muscle. Vismal said most of the time people just lack of patience to see the result WELL i being patience but most of you scolded at me and ask me to eat more including Vismal himself. The lower you want your body fat percentage to be (within healthy limits), the stricter you’ll have to be. A reduction in calorie intake will most likely occur without much effort when eating this way, and is necessary to reduce your size if you are overweight.
What we have devised at The Fit Mum Formula is a system where you can adapt to your needs, your body and how you feel, so some people will need more carbs than others to create a long term sustainable lifestyle for themselves.
My question is if i do not lower my carb intake all the time, i do not workout often, do i still need refeed day? As I said there, you simply don't have enough lean mass to get to your goal without looking starved.
I admire the result from Vismal and he mention before dont care what other people say such as "dude u r too skinny bulk up", just keep go on and i do a lot of research, many of u here also mention as long as there is a deficit, u will lose fat! Slowly increase your calories 100 per day each week until your weight start to come up a bit. What you are trying to do right now isn't going to be good for you and will be unsustainable. This varies between women, but if you stop menstruating or periods become irregular and erratic, you might have dropped your body fat too low.
At the end of the day though it comes down to the fact that reducing carbohydrates means your body has to burn fat for energy. Eat around half an hour afterwards instead, to refuel your muscles, build new muscle tissue, and help prevent muscle soreness. There is one more obstacle that hold me back which is i used to be a fat guy, now i have successfully lean down so i am afraid to gain fat again.


This will tell you what your maintenance should be and it will also help your body normalize it's hormones etc. Don't kill yourself for an unrealistic goal but rather look for something you can sustain for life and try putting on some muscle. Calories in vs calories out is the only thing matters for fat loss and bulking, this is what you all keep saying as well and i follow. Working muscles also results in an ‘afterburn’ whereby you are burning fat and calories for hours after you finish your workout.
If you arent happy with your physique it's going to be much more effective to do a lean bulk, then after 6 month to a year return to fat loss. Do you know the fear and stress i have when you used to be a fat **** and finally get into this lean and now you trying to bulk up?
If you've been doing a long-term, caloric deficit your body will need to normalize it's hormones etc and you need to let it get back to some stability.
The higher your body fat % the ‘softer’, ‘rounder’ and ‘plumper’ you will look, whereas a lower body fat % will result in the underlying muscles (or bones if insufficient muscle is present) becoming visible. I know my calories are low BUT again you all mention before if your weight stop dropping, cut more calories!!
Losing weight workout resistance training, especially when you don't have much to lose, can result in losing lean mass rather than fat. I just want a beach body thats all, im not lazy, i have strong will power but i just dont know what should i do now!!!
