Kenny, I'm not sure if the PT who took the skinfold test was trained properly then because he didn't use a tape measure. The bioimpedance is probably inaccurate, but I keep it as a reference point to see if I'm losing fat vs muscle mass. 10% bodyfat is just a personal preference. I prefer being lean...

I've read somewhere that eating low carb paleo/keto/anabolic diets will not give you enough energy for endurance sports such as MMA and Rugby. Is this true? If not then I will give it a try.

The human species as we know ourselves have only been walking the Earth for the past 200,000 years. Agriculture was invented 10000 years ago in Mesopotamia. Ancient Empires such as Rome and China started mass farming around 2-3000 years ago. Our bodies can't adapt that fast lol.

I just read a summary of it. I am scared that if I use this diet I won't have any energy for endurance type training and sports later on. Is it possible to use this diet while doing plyomerics and endurance running?

Look up Bergman's Rule and Allen's Rule. "Bergmann's rule has also been applied to populations of humans. Pygmies are found only in the tropics, and other tropical races tend to be shorter than those in temperate regions. Also, in Europe, Southern Europeans, such as Italians, tend to be shorter on a...

I can only do strength training 2x a week so I bust my ass in the gym when I go. I work a 4 day 40 hr work week and so I get sometimes 5 or less hours of sleep thanks to the ridiculous hours and the ridiculous traffic in my area. I usually go Tuesday and Friday. I do HIIT on the weekends. The traini...

When shouting, I think it's good to throw in some expletives as well. It's kind of douchey to others but a different part of your brain is supposed to light up. I usually take care of this while I'm driving to the gym so that I can get fired up without dropping like 10 F bombs in the gym lol. I have...

A side question then, would a person be able to bulk as effectively if they increased their fat intake and reduced their carb intake? As long as they were having around a 500 kcal surplus of their maintenance level? Everytime I bulk I have a nasty problem of gaining body fat too fast (I float betwee...

I got a three point skinfold test done at a local gym and also used a bioimpedance device several times and took a rounded average. Both readings around 14%.

I noticed eating lots of fatty stuff makes my mind more crisp also. Not just guacamole, peanut butter, and fish, but also pizza and bacon.

Realistic timeframe

What is a realistic length of time for a 24 year old male to go from 14% bodyfat to 10%? I'm male, 165 lbs, and eating 2000 kcal a day. My maintenance calories is 2475 kcal. I do heavy lifting with a program similar to SS and do HIIT 2x a week.
