    PB Nutrition and Bodyfat: How low can you go?

    Hi all, I have a question that I've often considered but never found an answer to. If body composition is, as Mark and others have said, 80% nutrition and 20% exercise, how low could a person get their bodyfat percentage following PB nutrition alone?

    Thanks in advance,
    DiscoStew

    Not sure if there is a good answer. The problem is if you didn't workout, you'd just look skinny... who wants that?

    I got to 11% with ease... sort of like it right about here so not trying to lower it any further.

    I started out somewhere around 15%; my caliper tells me I'm at 8.3%, but I think I'm closer to 10%. However, I've been slacking off quite a bit lately, so I think with a little determination I could easily get down to 6% eating and exercisising Primally.

    How did you all figure out your body fat? Apparently I can go to my local Y and pay $15... does that seem reasonable?

    You can probably buy a cheap pair of calipers for 15$, a very rough eastimate though would be a clear six pack devlops in most men at and under 10%.

    Well, if I can buy something for the same price that would enable me to check it as much as I want then that would be the way to go... Of course the thing I would be doing would be more than body fat percentage.. not sure what.

    I almost have a clear six pack... I would estimate I am at 15%, maybe a percentage point less. I literally believe that I have gained more muscle in the past 3 months (every since I went primal) then in the previous 3 years combined. I am very serious - its ridiculous really. Oh, and I did go to the gym... I was just stupid and did not really know what I was doing. I did single movement exercises for lifting heavy things!
