Hey Guys,

How much would I need to drop to get down to 10%BF?

I am 5'7 177LBS@15BF%-17BF% according to cheap scale with body fat analyzes. How many pounds would I need to drop to get to 10%? If it is too much, there is no way I will go down below 165.

177 * 0.16 = 28.32lbs fat
165 * 0.1 = 16.5lbs fat

28.32 - 16.5 = 11.82lbs fat

If you lost 12 lbs of pure fat you could do it :)

If you use windows, it'll work.

If you are 15%, you need to lose 9.83lbs of pure fat.
If you are 17%, you need to lose 13.77lbs of pure fat.

Okay, what is a good way I can try to figure out my approximate body fat? I ain't gonna eight myself in air and measure my weight underwater or some ****, lol. How do you guys figure out urs?
