Self-tutoring about health and fitness: the tutor begins about body fat.
My older son is a weight trainer who has an image of how an ideal body looks. He often talks about body fat: “I want to decrease my body fat,” and so on. He lets me know that mine could afford to decrease.
There are so many directions to follow about body fat (BF), I decided to start with what might be “acceptable”. For men, around 25% BF might be acceptable; for women, perhaps 30%.
Let’s imagine a person exercises, but also wants to look athletic. Cutting the acceptable body fat in half will typically do so.
