    how much does 5% of my body fat weigh?

    Im 137lb with a 14% body fat, if I want to reduce that to 9% body fat while maintaining my lean mass what will my end mass be? In other words, how heavy would 5% of my body fat at 137lb be? Thanks in advance.

    It doesn't exactly work like that, % changes as body mass changes. But you'll need to lose around

    omg I think I did it right (I suck at math) (just came up with this now but it makes sense)

    137 * 0.14 = 19.18 Fat

    Desired BF% = 9% = 0.09

    x = weight you need to lose, assuming it's all fat

    (137-x)(0.09) = (19.18 - x)

    12.33 - 0.09x = 19.18 - x

    x-0.09x = 6.85

    x = 6.85/(1-0.09)

    x = 7.53lbs
    The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.

    you could have just

    137/100
    1.37*5
    = 6.85

    intredasting... although if I hadn't set it up like that I wouldn't have known to do 6.85 / (1-0.09).

    I had no idea that (137*[BF%change])/(1-[final BF%]) would equal that.. mind ****ing blown

    Lol @ overcomplicated maths.

    Inaccurate in any case as you can't predict how much non-adipose body mass you would lose

    Id go up to 160 and do heavy compound lifts to get a bigger frame and the mass. Just dont breakaway and become fat but keep your mindset on your final goal. Its a marathon not a sprint.
