Women would technically be tastier than men as they have higher percentages of body fat.

I thought of this when I read a meme about a cannibal saying they taste the same, but that is not true. Taste is mostly affected by fat, which women tend to have more (not as in women are usually heavier, but as in natural body fat) than men, which leads me to believe women would taste better.

On the other hand, men have higher percentages of collagen, which affects tenderness.

Also, age has a huge effect as children tend to use more fat and collagen, which makes them overall better. Collagen can be obtained from protein-rich diets, so an obese girl between ages 4-6, when kids use a lot of fat and already have meat on their diets to get collagen, would most likely be the tastiest human.

You're welcome.

Body fat percentage going up and muscle percentage going down during cut

Hello guys.

I started cutting the first of January. And I’ve already lost 3 kgs/6,6 lbs. My intention has never been to lose weight fast, as I don’t want to lose the muscle I’ve built during my bulk.

However this month, according to my Nokia/Withings Body+ scanner I’ve lost 1.6 kgs/3.5lbs, but apparently my fat percentage has increased by 0.3% and my muscle has dropped by 0.4%. I know it’s not that much, but shouldn’t the fat percentage go slowly down along with the weight?

I’m training 6 times a week, with high intensity, always trying to either keep my strength or beat my PR’s. I do not have the same energy and I fatigue much earlier than when I bulked, but in some exercises I’ve actually increased strength.

This is what I don’t understand... and I’m not sure how much I should trust the body scanner. I’ve always been told that the body fat percentage is inaccurate, and that you should look at the trend, but I see no trend here

Is a bulk/ lean bulk worth it at higher body fat percentages?

Hey everyone, I'm new here but I really like what I've been reading. I just finally hit my weight loss goal going from 230lb to 150lb by eating 1500 calories per day, eating 130 grams of protein daily, and doing a full body dumbbell workout 3 days per week since I still don't feel comfortable going to gyms. I'm a 5'8" 26yo guy but my body fat percentage is about 19-20%. I don't really want to go lower than 150lb but I clearly have a lot of body fat to lose. I've read that recomping is a waste a time so I was wondering is bulking of any type worth it at this body fat percentage? And if not any idea what I should do? Thanks!

Woke up to an acceptable body fat percentage

I know you can’t entirely trust a body composition scale. Still, I weighed myself this morning and came in at 191 pounds and my body fat percentage is in the acceptable range for the first time in many years. BMI is still high but I’m getting there. I started at 270 in October 2020 so almost 80 pounds down now.

I went from an xxl shirt to needing to go to a x-large now after buying xl shirts a couple months ago I’m needing large. I was a size 38 waist needing to move up and I’m in 36 now needing to go to a 34. I replaced my belt once and have one more notch before I have to replace the one I bought in December.

My goal is 170 pounds and 17% body fat. So I have work for to do still.

Fun fact - My goal weight is not good enough. So I have a new goal that's not about weight, but instead body fat percentage.

I'm officially down 30 lbs and finally met my goal weight of 134! Okay it actually fluctuates between 134.1-134.9, but I've been under 135 for 2 weeks so I'm counting it as complete.

The thing is, I still don't look as good as I want to, or feel as good as I want to. Definitely better, but still not where I want to be. So I went and got an assesment that measured body fat, muscle mass, bone density, etc.

You guys, my body fat percentage is 29%. Somehow, with a bmi of 21 and having lost 30 lbs, I am still nearly in the overweight range. Literally 40 lbs of fat. I don't even want to imagine what it was when I was heavier.

Anyway, I have a new goal - 21% body fat. It's low but I didn't think I'd ever hit my goal weight either. So I'll still be hanging around a little while longer.

IF for 2 months now, no movement on the scale but body fat percentage going down

Hi Everyone,

SW:226, CW:224, GW:195, Male, 5'11". I've been doing IF now for 2 months, mainly 16:8, but sometimes going longer than 16 hours. I started IF in late January, and combined it with calorie counting (CICO, by weighing my food and tracking in the Lost It! app. Calorie limit is set to 2100), cardio (indoor cycling or HIIT) and strength training (following PPL splits in the Fitbod app). I exercise by doing cardio and strength training about 5-6 times a week, taking an off day when I'm really sore or when Athlytic (iOS app similar to Whoop) suggests.

My main concern is that the scale isn't moving downwards. I know that the number on the scale isn't always the only sign that shows improvements in your body. I have noticed that my clothes are fitting a bit looser, and I do notice changes in my stomach area where it is more flat than it used to be. Ever since I started IF, CICO and exercising, my Withings smart scale has shown that I have lost about 3% body fat and gained about 3% of muscle. Which could explain why I'm not seeing any improvement on the scale, but it's still discouraging every time I step on the scale and I see the number either go up or stay the same. Any advice? I was thinking of possibly cutting carbs by doing a low-carb diet, or maybe extending my IF to 18:6, but I just feel a bit lost and discouraged.

Thanks in advance!

Just wondering if there's something other than their scale that can directly sync to Garmin Connect. I'd like to buy a higher rated scale (theirs is never on the list of best scales) that costs less and sends body fat % over to Garmin Connect. If there isn't one, then I'll probably just bite the bullet and buy theirs.

How can I reduce my body fat percentage?

I am 36 years old, 5 feet 8 inches in height (or 172.72 cm in height), relatively athletic, I have a metabolic age of 37, and I have been experiencing challenges reaching my goal of 12% body fat at a body mass of 179 pounds.

I am currently employing the Slow Carb Diet (https://link.medium.com/RhItzoi8Aeb), which is a method of eating that has been very effective for me in the past, at least in my twenties.

I consume 2,000 net calories on a daily-basis, with the exception of my "cheat day" or "cheat meal day", which I have renamed a "fun meal day", so as not to vilify myself for eating tasty, albeit unhealthy foods once a week.

On some days, I lack in precision, so I may end up consuming 2,050 or 2,100, or 1,900, or 1,950 net calories.

I use MyFitnessPal and a scale to count my calories, but I am less meticulous when it comes to macronutrients.

I tend to gravitate towards eating a lot of healthy fats on most days, so my macros often seem to gravitate towards the macros associated with keto. I am not saying that the way that I eat is keto, however, to be clear.

For example, yesterday 63% of my calories came from healthy fats, like the fat from eggs, avocado oil, half an avocado, Athlete's Blend vegan protein, Fatso peanut butter, MCT oil, etc. 21% of my calories came from protein, and 16% of my calories came from carbohydrates (like beans and kale).

Sometimes as few as 10% of my calories come from carbohydrates.

I also engage in intermittent fasting, and my eating window is between 2:00 PM and 10:00 PM.

As far as physical exercise is concerned, I do an upper-body HIIT workout with a 50-pound kettlebell at home, once a week, I do a lower-body HIIT workout with a 50-pound kettlebell at home, once a week, I do a bodyweight HIIT workout at home, once a week, I run 7 to 10 km once a week, and I practice 20 to 60 minutes of hatha yoga three times per week. I engage in a myriad of physio exercises daily.

As far as lifestyle, stress, and sleep are concerned, I work with many coaches and mental health professionals, specifically in service of treating anxiety, depression, a propensity towards cultivating a negativity bias, workaholism, and perfectionism. I can be quite neurotic and hard on myself.

I usually get no less than 7 hours of sleep per night, I aim for 8 hours of sleep per night, and I used to struggle with weekly burnouts up until this year. I own and operate two businesses and I am in the process of starting two more.

So, self-imposed lifesty

Body fat percentage and caloric intake

I want to calculate my daily caloric intake and the TDEE calculator I use (https://tdeecalculator.net) asks me to fill on my body fat percentage which I don’t know. How important is this value in my calculation? Going by google and comparing myself to various pictures I estimate my BFP to anywhere between 25 and 35 percent. I used to in good shape so I got a decent amount of muscle hidden underneath my fat. I’ll list my age, height and weight below.

25 years old 112kg (247 lbs) 180cm (5 feet 10,8 inches)

I want to get down to roughly 80kg (176 lbs) but if I’m happy with my physique at a heavier weight I won’t mind. If I leave the BFP out the calculator tells me to eat 2550 calories to maintain my current weight. If I put in i.e. 35% body fat it drops down to 2331 calories a day. How accurate is this? My daily lifestyle is sedentary because I’m currently not working due to COVID. I started doing a light dumbbell workout 3-4 times a week.

I hope you guys can help me.

Is losing muscle still possible if starting out at a higher body fat percentage?

I started keto two weeks ago, and I was around 25% body fat at the time. I've lost 9 pounds since then, but I'm wondering if any of it had been from muscle. Since my BFP is fairly high to begin with, could it be possible that I didn't since I have plenty of fat to draw energy from? I'm not sure what my protein intake is, but I'm guessing it's an adequate amount since I eat meat fairly often, but I have not been lifting at all. The only exercise I get is playing basketball or going for jogs.

I'm also a 5'10" 220 lbs male, and my caloric deficit has ranged from 800 to 1000 calories a day.

How accurate are those electronic scales that can determine your body fat percentage. I’m 167 cm tall, and weigh 66.1 kilo (lost 4.7 Kg the last 4 weeks) and the scale says that my body fat % is 35?? I think it sounds high, and when I find pictures online showing different bodies with different % body fat, I think I look more like 28-30 maybe.

My next appointment is a month and a half away though so idk if it necessitates an earlier appointment.

Hey everyone, new to this sub. I’ve had a huge weight loss journey over a year and a half, I still have a lot of work to do but I finally got down to 18% body fat. Around what body fat percentage did abs usually come through for you? I can kind of see some definition but it’s still covered. Are there any diets or exercises that would help with them coming through? Right now I’m just doing low cal/high protein like I have been to get the percentage down more.
