Overshot My Recomp Goals – Part 7

In Part 1 I reviewed the results of my [20 Apr 2018] Bod Pod test against my goals of Body Recomposition.

Part 2 looked at some of the problems with having too low a body fat.

Part 3 looked at the consequences of low body fat with regard to fasting.

Part 4 asked the question “Can’t I just eat more?”

Part 5 started to look at maintenance diets.

In Part 6 I set some goals of fat gain and longer term, muscular gain.

I am trying to correlate the Bod Pod value I got for body fat.

My Nokia Body+ scale shows me (yesterday):

The skinfold calculator  Body Composition Calculator for a 3-Site Skin Fold Test shows:

So the scale body fat percentage is pretty close to the skin fold body fat percentage.

I am still skeptical that I am at that low of a body fat percentage. Too much loose skin to see abs, but I do feel them.
