My buddy and I are having an argument on body fat percentage. I am arguing that 7% body fat is shredded as hell with good muscle mass. He is saying anything under 18.5 is underweight and unhealthy. Any credible info to offer?
below 18.5% unhealthy? only for women
your friend must be a fat @ss
Maybe he is referring to 18.5 on the BMI scale being underweight... Regardless, one should not confuse LBM % with BMI because for statistical outliers (most ppl that are of muscular build) the BMI scale is grossly inaccurate
well the essential bf in men is 2-4%, but that doesnt mean its healthy for most of us to sit in the 5-6% area.
regardless though, im almost certain that money0351 is right. i think the cdc goes by the under 18.5bmi = unhealthy. not that any of that applies to any of us lol
