"As it pretty much always the case with questions"

"even small fat/weight losses (10% of current body weight) increases overall health and decreases the risk of many diseases."

"keeping their body fat at an overall lower level year round so (as to?) make getting to contest shape more realistic"

"some of the hormonal effect that i mentioned above"

"running backs and recievers need speed"

"Female are, on average, a little bit fatter"

"a male will carry more muscle and less fat at the elite level(.)"

"The man would happily trade a bit of fat on their legs"

Yeah, look, I wrote that like 3 years ago and threw it up early on the site. I'm sure all of the early articles have endless typos and I'm not going through all of them right now to fix 'em.

I've been dieting consistently for straight 2 years plus and been maintaining single digit bf at that span, I don't know what my starting bf before I started dieting but I am not naturally lean. I just noticed that it is really hard to build muscle at low bf but possible if you combine dedication, motivation, correct dieting technique and progressive training plan. I read from Alan Aragon's girth control that once you establish and maintained your physique preferably 1.5 years, your body will create a new set point that's why any given stimulus will be fight off by the body.

Yeah I had thought it strange that the editing police hadn't jumped on this relatively old article. Liked the article, though.

It was originally written for the old now long-deleted site, probably reposted in teh newsletter and I put up a lot of older stuff in the archives when I rebuilt the site.

Would the recommended body fat percentages for health (and I know this term is already a bit vague) still hold for a person with above/below average muscle mass, i.e. someone who works out?

For example,

A person who has 100lbs LBM with 15% body fat will have about 18lb's of body fat.
A person who has 150lbs LBM with 15% body fat will have about 27lb's of body fat.

Clearly, this is a change in the amount of fat of 50%, but the same percentage.

Basically, I am asking whether it is the amount or percentage of body fat that matters.
