How much does 10% body fat weigh? Is 1% BF roughly 1.6 pounds in weight?
If a guy is 5ft9 range, 165lbs with 19 - 20% body fat, how much would he weigh if he lost 10% body fat without losing or gaining much muscle (just concentrated on fat loss and muscle preserve for the time being).

I think you're question really just is how much fat you need to lose to get down to 10% BF, right?
Here ya go:
165 lbs x 20%BF = 132 lean body mass with 33lbs fat
132 lean body mass with 10%bf is 132 x 1.10 = 145.2lbs
So, you need to get from 165lbs to about 145lbs which is 20lbs fat loss. That is, if all you lose is only fat.

Is this a troll question???
Body fat percenttage is a PERCENTage of your weight. so 10% of whatEVER you weigh is fat.
I guess English schools are not good at teaching what percentages and math are

THERE is NO such thing as a hard gainer, ONLY a light eater.
