Default Initial Body Fat and Body Composition Changes

Initial Body Fat and Body Composition Changes

Under Practical Recommendations, point number 3, referring to the body fat percentages in brackets:

- Okay to work with 19-24% for the first lot?
- Shouldn't the values be 24-27% for the second lot?

"I suspect this is due to the development of systemic insulin resistance which causes calories to go into fat stores more readily."

"Basically, when fat cells start to get full, they become more resistant to further caloric storage" (recomp Q&A).

A bit of dissonance understanding these two quotes. I understand insulin resistance as poor insulin sensitivity, but clearly I'm missing something. One quote says getting fat causes one to get more fat, while the other says that when you're fat you are less likely to shuttle nutrients into fat cells...?

Taking sentences out of context will do that

"As well, it seems empirically that once body fat gets to the 15% range or so for men, fat gains tend to accelerate during mass gaining phases. I suspect this is due to the development of systemic insulin resistance which causes calories to go into fat stores more readily. Keeping body fat levels below that may be helpful."

The second sentence shows up nowhere in this article.

At 15%, fat cells are not filled up which is the context for the second sentence. The kind of severe insulin resistance being discussed there is when you are MUCH fatter.

Appreciated Lyle. At around 15%, I'd suspect that the problem would pertain to poor partitioning due to a higher fat:muscle ratio, though perhaps that's too facile. I just don't understand how systemic insulin resistance would develop in muscle cells in this context. Thanks anyway
