losing bf gave me my life back.
im 30 and all the time (from childhood to 28 years i was obese) and since 2 years im some kind of normalweight or even lean?
but im still having 22-25% (before, it was fucking 40-45%) and i was used to be the unattractive, loser guy.. even i was used to be a neutral being to the girls, all the time.... but since 2 years i see what i have missed all my life.. i wasnt a sexual being to the girls
but now, its like day & night.. its incredible how women look at me.. im not used to be sexually attractive to girls

of course im not chad but with 6'1 and some kind of normalweight, the difference its amazingly incredible im still on my way to loose more weight and im curious what will happen when i reach the magic 15% bf
This is men's issue, myself included. We've become accustomed to accessible food that is addictive and it kills our smv.

Women can get away with some Bodyfat as it:
- Enhances facial fat pads for beauty
- Enhances boobs and ass

For men there are NO advantages, you have to be lean everywhere.

Agreed. I'm like 25-30% so I'd say 27 and I struggle to get past 20% my body fights back

I'm at the stage now my upper 4 abs are out but the lowers aren't and there's an ever so slightly layer of fat over the top 4 abs

This is the period where I start going insane a bit and my mental health goes all over the place

This is where the best results come I need to push thru next 2 weeks!
Then it's finished!

you planning to get down to 12%? if so I think youre going to need to get lighter, rule of thumb add another 5-10kg of what you think you need to lose to get to the goal bodyfat. I went from 78kg to 66kg but i think i need to lose another 5kg give or take at 16% bodyfat atm

Yeah I started 160lbs now at 151.8lbs
Thought I'd be done at 145-147 but looks like I need to hit 140lbs for full set of lower abs

I’m not worrying about exact %, gonna get to 73, maintain, then see where to go from there. I may even lean bull, I’m very meticulous with calories so should be easily done without gaining much fat.

Been complemented about my Jaw my entire life. Always had a 10/10 submental region with a low bf.

I miss those jaw compliments from when I was leaner 🙁
Blessing and a curse for me. Was about 7% during childhood and am 9% nowadays. I have an angular face but the rest of me needs some more fat.

another amazing thread, there still is a shocking lack of knowledge about body fat here though.

loads of people believe that losing body fat only makes your more attractive since it shows bone but having 0 fat in your face is in itself an attractive feature, hence why everyone would benefit from having low body fat.

And of course, the majority of men have decent enough chins and jaws that going to 10-12% body fat will give them a “sharp” jawline.

a good example of how attractive being lean is is O’Pry. His bones don’t pop out and aren’t massive but his bones are structured in such a way that it makes his face look very lean and more defined.

The title is polarising I admit but hear me out.

If you’re fat you’re fat. You will be unattractive regardless of how good your jaw itself is.

However if you’re very lean, majority of times you will have an aesthetic jaw. Your jaw has to be extremely recessed or narrow to look bad at low bf%.

Christian Bale for example doesn’t have a wide jaw yet it still looks good at low bf% due to the defined jawline.

In fact the wider your jaw is, the more important low bf% becomes. We’ve all seen Jordan Barrett and Tom Welling’s descension when they put on weight.

If you’re just slightly recessed, being at low bf% would help more than you think. This guy here has a bad jaw by PSL standards but because he’s lean it doesn’t hold him back that much and actually harmonises well:

If we were to rank individual looksmaxxes, low bf% is EASILY number 1.
Once i see this recomp through im gonna cut down very nicely
