*Ignore the current title. My old questions were answered already. I just have a few more questions concerning weight loss.
Stats: 18 years old, 5'8, 150 lbs, 34 inch waist
1. How do I accurately figure out my body fat percentage?
2. My weight usually goes to my thighs instead of my upper body. Is there any way to avoid/reverse this?
3. Whats a good weight and waist size for a 5'8 male?
4. My lower body is bigger than my upper body. Should I focus on cutting or continue working on gaining muscle?
Please let me know if there's any more information you guys need to give me a better response.

Just confirming, you're a man right? That's an absurdley low weight goal you've set for yourself if so. You say you're skinny fat now, here's what's going to happen if you stick with that atrocious diet of yours... Either you'll still be skinny fat just at a lower weight (since your body will be eating away at what little muscle you have), or you'll starve yourself down to a very low bodyfat level and you'll look like a nazi prisoner. You won't look good or tone or have a six pack at all using your method, you'll just look sickly.
I'll say what others have said again... Read the stickies, set a proper diet out for yourself, lift weights to preserve muscle, and you'll be so much happier with the results.

Youre 34 inch weist is pretty good i mean jay cutler cuts up at a 34 inch weist it sounds like youre problem is youre lack of LBM not so much youre fat and thast what people were saying that if you just keep loosing weight youre just gona keep getting skinny fat. Once you build some muscle mass it will in turn burn more calories then you would with less muscle mass.
You need to up youre calories, work out all muscle groups 3 - 5 times a week and get atleast 120g of protein per day and youre body will take on a much better shape as a result.
