    How to get Ripped

    Has anybody been successful in achieving a sub 10% body fat? How did you do it?

    I know it's shallow, you don't have to tell me that.

    I was down to 7% about 6 years ago and it wasn't any of the following:

    Healthy, Safe, Sustainable or Primal!

    I would much rather get to a healthy sustainable weight and body fat percentage whether it be 9% or 15%. Health and fitness are my number one goals now and body fat percentage will came along with that!

    I'm probably under 10% now. Eating 3000 calories, IF and VLC.

    I do some weights when I can be bothered and no cardio.

    Grains (wheat/rice/oats etc) . . . . . Dairy (milk/yogurt/butter/cheese etc) . . . . . Nightshades (peppers/tomato/eggplant etc)
    Tubers (potato/arrowroot etc) . . . Modernly palatable (cashews/olives etc) . . . Refined foods (salt/sugars etc )
    Legumes (soy/beans/peas etc)

    Tarlach, what are you stats if you don't mind posting:

    Age:
    Height:
    Weight:

    And, what do you consider VLC? What is your typical food intake?

    I am asking because my experience so far with PB has been that I gain weight eating too many calories. However, I still have some carbs, but not much. My higher days I probably do about 60-70, and my regular days are about 25-40.

    I'm trying the leangains.com approach. I'm having trouble getting enough calories in during the 8 hour window though.

    I went from 152 to 148, but feel like 6 pack definition actually got worse. There were a lot of other variables during that time though, so I'm going to give it a week next week and see how it goes.

    ^ Try eating some coconut oil before your meals (1-2 tablespoons). I'm currently doing that, and so far it has greatly accelerated my weight loss efforts. Well, I've just been doing it for a week, but if continues to work I'll make a separate thread about it. See the books Eat Fat, Lose Fat and The Coconut Oil Miracle for further info!

    how long did it take people who have sub 10% body fat to get there? And from what level of body fat did you start out at?
