Optimal Percent Bodyfat For Longevity


Oct 28, 2012
What are your thoughts on the ideal percent bodyfat for overall healthy,metabolism, longevity?

I'm guessing around 12%


Jan 27, 2013
I don't know what the exact number is....but I seriously doubt that it's below 10%.
I felt terrible when I was down to that level.
Weak, tired, lethargic, ect...
