Making sense of the numbers, in regards to body fat.
Hey everybody. I have had tremendous success on this WOE so far, weighing in at around 85kg (~188lbs) down from 105kg (~230lbs) around Christmas and having been up to about 120kg (265lbs) in the more distant past.
So far so good! I did some measurements today, and plugged them into a body fat calculator, which told me my bodyfat is 9% (using my height 186cm, weight 85kg, waist 80cm and neck 40cm). I have also measured it with calipers to around the same recently. Now the thing is, this is absolutely not true. You can't see my abs, for instance, and I also have substantial amounts of fat on my butt, hips and thighs. So is there any explanation for why my bodyfat is apparently distributed oddly so that normal calculations get it all wrong?
I am extremely happy about my results so far, but I just got to wondering if the female-like distribution could be due to hormonal imbalances? Or maybe just past imbalances, that'll likely go away as the last fat vanishes?
Your thoughts are much appreciated :)
