View Full Version : Lowering Body Fat %

08-08-2002, 08:48 PM
I am 16, 5'9", 144lbs. I am about 11% - 12% body fat and I wanna get down to about 7% or 8%. I watch what I eat. I don't really have a "diet", but I do watch what I eat and make sure I get plenty of protien, water, and necessary carbs. If you have any advice, please drop me a line. Thanks!

Advice: This is wannabebig forum, you are not big enough. Get bigger, then lower your body fat....see threads on bulking.

I would not be bulking at 12%! I would drop down to 7%, then bulk your way back up.

My initial question, which you all obviosly didn't understand, was how can I lower my body fat percentage? Feel free to answer that question this time (Hense it was the only question I asked so I don't so how you got so confused)

what kind of training and cardio do you do? dieting isn't the only thing that will lower your BF%.

T_Man, you can add lean mass or you can diet. your choice.

Eat less calories, do more calorie burning activities. There's no magic formula to losing fat.

Read "Hardcore Bodybuilding: The Scientific Approach"

It shows a diagram on how to cycle your calories and weight. As you increase your muscle mass your body fat percentage will decrease. I would work on getting bigger before trying to get cut.

You are only 127lb of lean body mass.
