Re: "Body Fat" not budging

How does the Navy body fat system work? do they do measurements and go by height and weight or something?
Where is your bodyfat distributed currently? Is it mostly stomach, love handles?

It's a comparison of your neck circumference with your waist size. Then it's compared to your height, and they magically tell you that you're fat. But yeah, I mostly have it on my gut.

Re: "Body Fat" not budging

Just thinking out loud but if it is mostly in your gut it could be cortisol issue...stress (from anywhere, whether it is life or excessive training) elevates cortisol levels making stubborn fat even more stubborn.


Other than lowering training volume or various supplements I'm not much help in how to lower cortisol though...maybe someone else can chime in...

I think their calculation is high. I'm not 18.9% body fat, and that's the result it's giving me.

Actually, I just saw they measure the neck differently than I usually do, so doing it their way does yield a much more realistic number. Never mind.
