Re: Body Fat?

yeah, i was gonna say... lose 5 lbs.? that doesnt make sense... considering unless your like a female body builder that a healthy BMI should be 18% or higher...

Re: Body Fat?

"too low" is fairly subjective. Different people have different so-called set-points where their body will comfortably maintain weight based on genetic disposition. If you can't maintain your bodyfat % healthfully, then you are too low.
