Sticky Thread Sticky: DON'T LOOK PAST the BASICS

From what I've been reading in this forum for the past several years---and it's getting worse, not better---most posters here are, for some reason, missing the basics of fat loss, and instead, are looking for some magic bullet, or worse, putting their faith in some TV or youtube guru, or some...

Does the body put on fat more readily at lower bodyfats?

I know the body partitions say 200 calories between muscle and fat better at 12% vs 20%. I've read that fat is estrogenic which explains at least a part of that. What about when you go lower? I'm a little under 12% now. I can stop at 11%, 10%, 9%. To me it is mostly about 1) Where I want to...
