    why so hard to get to 10% body fat

    Im not at 10% so i cant answer

    But i hear a lot of people on the forums saying they have been training hard and always in a calorie deficit

    if this is the case why does it become so much harder to loose the last drop of fat

    if you are burning more calories than you consume

    this may be a daft question but i had to ask

    the reason i havent got there is because i spen 3 weeks training hard then ill end up going out drinking one weekend which then leads to a few days not training and bad eating

    It's hard because people don't give it their all.
    "Everyone thinks they're on their way to single digit body fat as soon as they see a blurry four-pack in the right lighting.Your final body weight at 5-6% will be a lot less than what you think.Talk to me again when you get in contest shape." I'd be willing to say that 95% of people on this forum accomplish nothing in years, don't be one of those people. It's sad,they seem to have the knowledge many don't but can't utilize it.

    i've got the same problem man, been hovering in the same bf zone for the past year and just recomping slowly...i've already been on a perpetual diet for 1.5years, it's quite fun to go out and relive the old days for a few days at a time...keeps me sane

    besides, it is really unnatural for the body to go much lower than 10% bf, apparently evolution has taught out bodies that another ice age is imminent, so we don't want to fall in the danger zone of BF%

    Some of it has to do with age for the older forum members. At 35+ years of age, it is harder to lose bodyfat. Not impossible, just harder. Also a lot of people are not making the necessary changes to their diet/workouts to achieve single digit bodyfat.

    Then there are people like myself who could care less about being single digit.

    When the going gets tough the tough gets going..

    Pretty basic... For some people (me included lowest 12%) you start feeling like cr#p and doubting yourself... The slightest slip can snow ball and you gain it all back much quicker then it took to lose it..


    My 2 cents

    I will agree that you can gain it back MUCH faster than you can cut it BUT feeling like crap and doubting yourself is based upon the individual. There's more than just the physical side to this fat loss game as many of us realize. You must be mentally strong as well as physically to really become one of the elite.

    Too true sadly. When U went from 190-200 lbs. to 140, I wanted it so bad and I didn't want to look thatfat anymore, now that I'm here and I look and feel a bit decent, I start to coast and lose some of the passion I had to lose the weight from when I was at 190+.

    We all come from humble beginnings.

    Studies everywhere tell you everything, listen to your body instead and you'll succeed.
