    It's not so bad if you have a routine and are a boring cunt who does that sort of thing for 'fun'

    I couldn't do it, 10% body fat that is, I have good will power (usually) but that's well beyond me. I have a 70/30 admiration/sorrow for that ilk. And the belly fat is ALWAYS the last thing to go, if you consider our millions of years of evolution and how we're (humans) designed you'll see why.

    Apropos of nothing, did you know: those training for a marathon often end up heavier due to the large amount of calories they need to consume.

    Training for a marathon, or "training" for a marathon?

    Or in fact, training for a "marathon" snickers

    Let's say Joe Schmo, rather than a professional.

    Was it the NVG that gave it away, or something else?

    Weight loss is easy to understand but hard to enforce. Which is why I'm turning into a chunk again. Wish I was famous enough to go on I'm a Celeb!

    @mangojoe I call that urge to have a poo when you're out walking/running/whatever "Radcliffing"

    Pretty much every energy gel or electrolyte type drink gives me the raging Radcliffes. It makes marathon and beyond distance running a fairly binary choice between cramp or shitty shorts

    @OnlyJoeKing I'll put it in simple terms, and my terminology may be a bit off but you'll get the idea. As 'man' has evolved over thousands of years we were sporadic eaters meaning we'd kill a deer or something and gorge on it until we'd eaten it all or couldn't eat anymore. Then maybe we wouldn't eat for a couple of days or a week or something. That excess gorged energy is stored as fat around our midriff, as that's closest to our vital organs, liver, kidney's etc etc. It's simple and perfect evolution. But that's why it's the hardest (last) fat to be shifted and the first place (most of us) will begin to show weight gain. The proverbial six pack can ONLY ever be achieved with an arduous and devoted commitment to a low fat diet. You can do 5000 crunches a day but you'll never achieve a six pack without a really learn diet.

    The sporadic eating thing is also the reason why eating one main meal a day is considered by some (me included) to be an acceptable way to carry on, the 3 meals a day thing is a relatively modern phenomena, say the last few hundred years maybe that has only come about because of our (humans) increase in food availability.

    Hunter-gathers are mostly fruit and nuts. The "hunting" bit of their diet only made up about 20% of their calorie intake, but they had plenty to eat otherwise.

    @freddymercurystwin Makes sense to me. And yeah, despite doing quite a lot of exercise, I still have a bit of belly fat. Booze and takeaway curries don't really go hand in hand with being ripped!

    My body fat dipped under 14% last week, it is quite difficult to maintain it aged 39 while still enjoying life

    How are you measuring it though as a lot of methods aren't accurate apparently

    They have a boditrax machine at the gym. I know itís not accurate but it seems consistent with its own measurements so itís useful in the sense of tracking progress. Also based on comparison / example photos of various body fat levels itís about right I reckon.

    Thereís a similar device in my office which says Iím sub 10%, which is very kind of it but factually false :)

    I would stick to the office one, it seems a reasonable sort.

    Accu-Measure caliper is quite alright to see if what you're doing is working.

    Else, get a DEXA scan, it doesn't get any more precise (or more expensive).
