Angel R 15,4%, I'm almost on it...
Get that body fat % down and get lean. Lean is quick!
Getting your body fat percentage below 15% is a good step in the direction of being really lean. Through whichever means you choose, aim to reduce your fat to a point where only 15 per cent of your body is comprised of fat. Once you do that you are only 5% away from a fully enveiled six pack.
Note: this is not recommended for women who need at least 15% bodyfat

“Currently am at 14% due to my bulking phase. But I can see abs peeking so Am going on the route of lean bulking. It is a long road ahead to reach my target.”

Alt D I'm hovering between 15% and 14.5% - and really want to get to the 10% range - which I know if HARD work. Right now I am cycling @ 20 miles a day, core/arm training at the gym, my diet over the past 4 months or so is vegan, with a tiny bit of red wine, cream in 2 coffees a day (ave) - otherwise no meat,wheat ( Although I do Whey Powder protein) ,dairy or alcohol. I've lost @ 30 lbs - from 186 to 157, I've just turned 56 and returning to hard training after a decade layoff from USCF bicycle racing. Where to get that last 5% from - I understand it's more visceral fat, deep internal that needs real effort. Added Creatine - (just finished loading phase) and BCAA, looking for advice on to get to 10%

Jez B Happy with progress on this challenge, think I'm about there for this challenge, but gonna keep going to see where it takes me.
Jez B Ok so this is me committing to this challenge. I'm on the left and that's some dude on the right who claims to have about 15% body fat.
Some way to go for me but a good way to compare. Sorry about sharing but going public is a good motivational tool, so I've been told.
Jez B Ok I signed up for this challenge about 100 years ago, but now I've just come back off holiday, beer, cake and chocolate are out, gym, healthy eating and completing this challenge are in. Gonna need plenty of encouragement to keep me motivated and on the straight and narrow. Starting now, come people don't let me down!

Helmie Sheha My current body fat is 32%. Hope to achieve 14-12% in a year. I think I can! Let's do it!
Sam S answered the question Hi, pardon my ignorance, but how do I measure my body fat? I have a BMI of 18, but that isn't the same as body fat, is it? I have recently been told by my doctor that I am underweight, so I am looking to gain muscle mass while lowering body fat. Thanks :)
there are a few ways to measure body fat, BMI is not one of them! BMI was developed in the 50's for health insurance companies to gauge the longevity of subscribers.... it is still used today, why? I don't know. You...

I agree with Chris, you need to have it measured professionally. Most fitness centers or rec centers on college campuses have someone who is trained to do it. Oftentimes, you have to pay for it, but it is realtively...

I'm afraid that the healthyform link will not do the job - At all. Taking waist measurement and measuring it againt weight and height and does not give you a bodyfat percentage. Secondly not all body types ev...

Sam S So currently I'm at 22%. My carb intake has been low for the past few months and I've been on a plateau for the past 3 weeks. Does anyone have any advice?
Đorđe T I checked it few days ago, I have 19.2...I do not know how much time I need to get 15%, but I'll try...
Justin M I have done 2 tests for body fat % today. One reading 15.4% and the other 9.4%. I need to confirm what it really is and then hopefully cross this one off. Wouldn't be worth assuming now
S C I sign up to this challenge a while ago and have been really slack... to much stuff happening... but today I woke up and said this is the beginning, I am going to behave. Reading all these comments with you awesome people trying to do the challenge I MUST DO IT!!!! I CAN DO IT!!!
Allison H Been lingering at 20%. My goal is 15% I have always wanted a athletic build and I am finally doing it at age 33 and having 3 kids/3 c sections. I started at over 40% a little over a year ago. I have hit a plateau here and am trying to find a way through! Any tips or ideas are appreciated!!
Why not ask for some advice from other Challenge takers, or read some of the Challenge guides first?OK, I'll keep working at it!
