    Yeah, I don't have a reliable way to measure bf% anyway, so my plan was to just go by how I look. But some numbers are useful to be able to discuss it with you guys. I would think I am well over 15%...

    Not sure I got that. Are you talking about fixing my posture with the first sentence? I am obviously bending over in that pic to show the fat more clearly. That's not how I normally stand! :P And...

    Morning weight yesterday: 90.3 kg
    Today: 90.7 kg

    I think that's OK? I was about 91.5 about a week ago I think.

    I can feel being on restricted calories already. I'm definitely more hungry.

    By the way, for me it's 1 & 3. I wanna be somewhat ripped I guess, but not "You want to be 150 lbs, six pack, and tan." I probably want to weigh well over 200 lbs, and I don't want a fake looking tan.

    This isn't true IME. Muscle and leanness are key. Question is which one is most important.
