Body fat percentage is thankfully gaining more popularity as an effective marker of overall health and fitness instead of the BMI Index.
Body Fat Percentage – is the amount of body fat (lb, or kg) divided by total body weight listed as a percentage.
Body Fat Distribution – We all have different body fat distributions, or how fat is distributed across our body. Body Shape -Similar to body fat distribution is we all have different body shapes, so two different body shapes may have the same body fat percentage even if they don’t look like it. Muscle Striations – As an individual becomes more defined, the actual muscle can be seen more clearly, which looks like thin rods, referred to as striations. Vascularity – This is the appearance of veins in different areas of the body as body fat decreases. Bodybuilders can drop as low as 3-4% body fat when preparing for bodybuilding competitions.
Approximately 6-7% body fat for a man is a bit less extreme than competition bodybuilders, but it’s still hovering at a level that is not sustainable for most men. This is a sustainable level for most men where you should be able to see your abs, but they will likely not be as defined as a man in the 6-7% body fat range.
There is more fat all around the body at the 30% level including waist, back, thighs, and calves.
As men get heavier and heavier gaining more fat, most of the fat is funneled right in the stomach. Similar to the 35% level, even more fat accumulates in the stomach and waist region, so that waist sizes can approach 45 inches, or more. This is still considered a very low body fat for women, which is similar to the 6-7% body fat for range men.
This is on the low end of what’s average for most women and is characterized by a shape that is neither too slim, nor overweight. While most men have fat funnel into their stomachs, as the body fat of most women (but certainly not all) increases, this fat tends to accumulate in the hips, buttocks, and thighs. The hips become even wider at this level of body fat and the face and neck will appear rounder and more full.
The hips and thighs grow larger so that hip circumference can reach 42+ inches, waist of 35 inches, and thighs over 25 inches.
Given how confusing measuring body fat percentage can be, I hope seeing these body fat percentage pictures was helpful!


I’d like to know, are those lower fat percentages tightening their muscles or are they relaxed? One thing I’m skeptical about before starting built lean is that I might just become a skinny scrawny guy at low body fat as I have no lifting experience.
Fat underneath the chin should start to subside as a man dips below 20% body fat and heads toward 15% body fat.
One thing I’m skeptical about before starting built lean is that I might just become a skinny scrawny guy at low body fat as I have no lifting experience. Additionally, how long did it take to go from your before to your after picture on this website (~20% to 6%); was this done by your version of the Built Lean program? Would someone (theoretically) notice a big change in how their face looks going from 14% BF to around 7-8% BF or have the gains as far as facial appearance been maxed out around 14%? If it is the case that facial appearance improves at lower body fat levels, then I would most certainly love to join the Built Lean program!
I go by measurements and how I look in pictures now, but it is nice to see visually how different people look at different body fat levels.
In order to get to 10 to 12% BF should I continue to increase cardio work or increase weight training? In the provocative new cover story of its May 21 issue, TIME Magazine taps into a two-decade-long parenting conversation that has boiled over in recent months.
In the article, Pickert explores who Sears is and why controversy surrounds his theories -- the biggies are baby-wearing, extended breastfeeding and co-sleeping -- but it's TIME's photographs of real mothers breastfeeding their toddlers that has everyone talking. The cover shows Jamie Lynne Grumet, a slim blonde 26-year-old California mom, breastfeeding her 3-year-old son.
The usual questions that come up when mothers are called out for breastfeeding in public (which happens often) include: Is breastfeeding indecent? Her point, in writing the in-depth profile of Sears, seems to be that there are many parents out there left wondering what's right, what's wrong -- and most important -- what makes sense for their families. So in general, you’re saying that a physique with low body fat is more attractive than one with more muscle but also more fat? It seems to me that unlike those of men, the pictures of the women in the middle row (ranging from 25-35% body fat) don’t show as much difference among them. Gee, my body fat has been measured all over the place using under water testing, calipers, measurements, handheld machine, body fat scale and so on…I ammtold anywhere from 17-23% that is a huge range and none of the methods agree even when retaken to see if the numbers are the same.
What would cause a man to register at 10%-12% or maybe even less, but look more like the 15% picture.


I have not done any weight training in a year now but am familiar with moderate to advanced training.
I recently had a bone density scan and later on when the doctor was going over the scans with me she said that I had a 31.2% body fat percentage. Journalist Kate Pickert reports on the rise of attachment parenting, a set of techniques popularized by Dr.
But, as Pickert points out, the women featured are at one extreme end of this always-controversial discussion.
Do you think that reflects the general appearance of women or the lower availability of pictures of women with defined ranges of body fat? I haven’t gotten my period in a while, and while she said that my body fat was reasonable, it would be good to increase it a little because it might not be high enough for my body.
I would do the Built Lean program, but I don’t believe the nutrition part would be practical here, and therefore not a fair test or use of the program.
Actress Mayim Bialik, who recently published her memoir "Beyond The Sling", is a vocal advocate for attachment parenting and recently came under fire for writing about breastfeeding her own 3-year-old. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all mothers breastfeed for a full year -- or longer if the mother so chooses, so how can we shame women who are just following the advice of the country's foremost medical establishment?
I’ve already lost 18lbs and gotten better muscle visibility through your nutrition guide and weightlifting. While Bialik ignited big discussions about how much is too much when it comes to motherhood, TIME's story is elevating the conversation to a national debate. I’ve started count my calories, change my eating habits and also doing my regular exercise. Just to let you know that your website has a lot of good and useful information on it to help people get lean and also helping obese people like me.
The nutrition part is difficult, as I work in a remote northern camp, and am subject to eating camp food.
