I asked the question earlier, and maybe it just sounded like I was being my usual sarcastic self, and didn't sound like a serious question. I really don't understand the utility of BF measurement. What difference does it make? Is there some BF% below which one should be content, and above which one should increase fat loss efforts? And, is this a level at which you wouldn't be able to make the same decision on another basis? I lost weight until I thought I'd lost enough, or even a bit too much, and then increased my food intake. Is it likely that I would have made these decisions differently if I had been following BF (measured by whatever method)? Would BF measurements help me make those kinds of decisions better?
Oh, yea, I didn't think it was a serious question.
I'm not sure that it would matter much in your situation. Plus in any situation, at the end of the day, it's how you look, and the number doesn't matter.
The main point for me, is just so I have a good idea of how much fat I need to lose. That way I know what to expect and how long it's going to take. It would be so nice to know about how much weight I will need to lose in my cut in order to get the look I want. If you think you need to lose 15 lbs and you do that and you still aren't there, that can be very frustrating. Then you're left wondering, do I lose 10 more? 15 more, or what?
It would be really awesome, just to know if you are close enough, to where this is cut, is your final one or not. That way you can set a good realistic goal to shoot for.
