26% boyfriend is not that great. Try keep it around 20 . You dont need to even do diets to be between 15-20%
@gym4ever I am shocked manI used to have 18% body fat mass last yearBut I didn't workout well on and off 😑
im sure you will fix that. Eating less sugar will get you under 20%
@gym4ever I do that...I just think I have been sloppy in the last two months that's it
Fat percentage is more important and waist measurements etc
If you keep acting like that you will be overweight in no time
You can do it 👍👍

My goal is actually to try to get to over 30 BMI at some point without getting fat.
I did get pretty fat a few years into marriage ("happy fat going out and having so much fun with wife all the time"). I started getting that sort of dad bod gut going and got close to 200 lbs. But that's when I started getting into fitness -- I just felt so soft and out of shape and decided I need to do something about it.
Well, I was always into fitness of some form but that's when I started really getting into training the upper body. I was a sprinter and skateboarder before.
So pretty much the BMI thing is wrong. Cuz if the weight is muscle not fat, bc there’s no way you’re overweight
@Coastjammer BMI is probably the least accurate of the measurements. It's kind of assuming a lot of how the average individual is like. Most accurate in my research is body fat percentage for health (though it is the most difficult to measure accurately). You don't tend to find someone with a six-pack developing type-2, e. g, even if they're in the "overweight" category of BMI. Another still crude measure but at least better than BMI is to make sure your waist size doesn't exceed half your height, though there are still anomalies there when people have very developed obliques, e. g.
@Coastjammer There's too much of an unhealthy focus on the scale as well in my opinion, especially among women. You can find body composition transformations accompanied by weight gain with cases like this:And this:I like some muscle on both men and women because it also means they can eat a bit more without gaining fat. It translates to modest boosts in basal metabolic rate (faster metabolism, i. e.), but I think it can also translate to more non-trivial in total daily energy expenditure, since you have the muscle and strength and energy to just burn more calories throughout the day (even outside training). It's something I get a lot now is how I can eat so much and not get chubby -- I took that for granted in my teenage years, lost it after marriage, regained it, and now I attribute it to muscle and having energy to burn energy.
@Coastjammer And finally a legendary example (kind of my goals) -- Mike Tyson:He was built like a tank, just solid muscle and so ridiculously strong for his height, as a heavyweight fighter but actually over 30 BMI putting him in the "obese" category (but last thing he'd have to worry about is type-2 diabetes).I wanna be like that! It's a slow progress for me. I like to say I'm a "hard gainer" but in truth I am just really lazy! :-D
I know, but is a good indicator to a certain degree
It's a decent idea of where you should be about
You are fine lolDon't worry about it 👍
