hey mate, based on the pictures, I’m roughly 20% body fat. I’m also underweight – 5’11, 128 lbs. Still have some belly fat that I want to get rid of before I start bulking. Not sure if I want to cut and get down to 110 pounds to get to a flat stomach. I would but some say being underweight may be a bit risky health wise. Your website doesn’t recommend that I bulk if I’m anywhere above 16% body fat. Plus I heard that to take advantage of all the “noob gains” (gain a ton of muscle if you are a novice and just bulk for a long time) it’s better to bulk for like 2 years and then cut. The problem is I don’t want to have that belly fat for another 2 years. What’s the best way to approach this?

Hi, are the people in these pictures supposed to be flexing their abs or not?
Because when I flex it looks like I have between 12 – 15% BF and when relaxed it looks more like 16 – 18% BF

Hi Andy,

Just wanted to ask you some questions about MCT oil/powder. Im fairly new to this and thought; what do you think that will or will not benefit this to IF and health benefits in general.. Just read your article on your website (just one topic you speak about) and you are rather clear about it in a couple sentences πŸ˜‚
Do you have maybe some more interesting (science based?) info or articles about it?

Thanks!

Kind regards,

Tom

Hi Andy – great website which I’m studying religiously at the moment!
 
Potentially a bit of a weird one but something you may have encountered before – I’ve been cutting for a while now and, from looking at the photos, I would estimate my body fat percentage to be roughly 12% around my arms, but I’d put my stomach, which sticks out beyond my chest, in the 16-18% category (I should mention that this is while untensed, and I have visible abs when tensed).
 
Is it safe to assume that fat has been dropping from my arms and other areas far quicker than my stomach? If so, is this fairly normal, and would you recommend continuing the cut until I have visible abs while untensed?

Hi Andy,

I just want to say that your guide was so helpful. I’m not here to ask a question but moreso to say thank you for offering your advice. There are so many different articles online, fitness influencers and instagram models that can discourage your with conflicting information, but you have done the complete opposite of that. I have been following your guide and cutting weight ( I am mainly looking for my muscles to show, so i am at a caloric deficit that I calculated using your macro calculator). It has been working well and i have lost about 2 pounds in the last two weeks. I am learning something new every day and appreciate the e-mails you send out.

Thank you!

Hi Andy. Are these photos in the “best possible lighting” to better accentuate definition? Will different lighting (not the best) significantly swing the leanness from say 10%-11% to 12%-15%? Thanks in advance as always.

Are those lower body fat percentages with flexed abs or unflexed abs…?

Andy, I love all your materials, thanks for all you do. I don’t need everything to have a guide for women, but I am curious if you could add section here for women’s body fat and what different ranges look like? I especially agree with all the measuring tools we have for body fat being flawed, but we do need to know body fat to know how to proceed with training and diet.
