Looking at those pictures, I think there's quite a large difference between 10% and 15% in terms of how impressive they look but in my case, those two are 10lbs apart. Interesting. Onwards with UD2.0...
As peolpe get leaner, small BF changes = enormous visual changes.
When peoiple are fatter, big BF changes = small visual changes.

It's a ratio thing.

If you have 100 lb fat and lose 5 lbs that 5%
If you have 10 lbs fat and lose 5 lbs that's 50%

I have been doing the visual guessing method for years now...In any case looks like I'm somewhere between 15-20%.

True, it's really hard to tell exact fat % unless you get scanned.

Thank you Lyle. This website is a game changer once you understand the mechanisms behind fat loss/muscle gain.

Default Results from my cut.

Alright not too bad of results. Original pics are 170 lbs on May 15th. Today's pics are 150 lbs on July 8th.

I ran Extreme Rapid fat loss for 4 days at the beginning. Then I ate at maintenance for about two weeks. The rest of the time was a fairly mIld to nonexistent deficit based on my resting metabolism. But with quite bit of activity to create a decent sized daily deficit. I'd walk most mornings, lift 3x per week, yoga 4 times a week, and my job is relatively active with lifting, cleaning, walking, etc.

I think I'm ready to run a long slow bulk for the next several months. Any guesses on bodyfat%?

I would guess right around 10% give or take 1%.

Really? I was thinking more like 13-14% due to the lower ab fat and lower back fat.

I dont feel much different than normal. I'd think 10% I'd feel a lot weaker, sluggish, etc..
