How can you reduce body fat percentage for male?

Attitude adjustment: This takes care of itself when you get the idea that (1) food is fuel, not comfort or entertainment; (2) aerobic fitness is actually fun and is a big part of who you are.

Which body fat percentage is generally considered severely underweight for an 18 year old male?

Which body fat percentage is generally considered severely underweight for an 18 year old male?

You don't need any: Concepts about "ideal weight" are junk -- subscience and entertainment. Your best weight is whatever looks and feels right to you while you're able to take part successfully in your favorite sport. Photo guy isn't worried. A man needs no body fat whatever -- in fact, "ripped" muscle definition is much prized by both athletes and men just seeking to look good.

I'm male. I weigh 126. My waist measurement is 29 hip 33 neck 14 what's my body fat percentage?

Com/journals/crim/2016/1526175/ Body fat can be estimated with widely available bioelectric impedence, underwater weighing, skin calipers and some others. The gold standard is by total body DXA scan. Glad to discuss in detail

Is a body fat percentage of 24% bad?

Is a body fat percentage of 24% bad?

Room for improvement: Some charts say 18-24% body fat is "average" for men and >25% obese, but others adjust for age and consider anything more than 20% high for a 18 yo male. It would be optimal to lower your body fat to no more than 20% through diet and exercise. Avoid sugars, simple carbs & fried foods. I recommend Dr. Fuhrman's diet: http://tinyurl.

Rapid weight loss will often sacrifice muscle mass in the process.
