    Currently I'm between the 45&50% ones.
    My ideal is the 35% one. Anything less than that makes me look sick.

    Guy wise, while i think the 15% looks the hottest, I tended to avoid that type (except once). I prefer a bit of cushion in the arms before feeling the hard muscles. But not flabby. I prefer the kind of body that is built from and used to physical work rather than an impractical physique obtained through the gym.

    Looking hot incidentally makes it seem much more masculine.
    I prefer the rugby player build with a beer belly - muscular but with a nice layer of body fat.

    I had my body fat measured at 10% about four years ago. Although I ate a really clean diet, I still think there was some error since there were none of the effects you would expect from it. And I was wiry but definitely not ripped like that picture. I tried to dough up a bit and am probably more around 20% now - it's hard to go on the pictures. I don't really care what I am, as long as I don't die first in a famine.

    Using this calculator: http://www.calculator.net/body-fat-calculator.html my body fat is 23% - and the pics don't seem too far off for an estimate. I'm happy with it.

    I like the 20-22% bodyfat pic the best for females, and I'm about 23-24%, I think. I could stand to tone-up a bit.

    I'm closest to the 25% female and quite good there. The one below it is pretty good too, as is the one above. I think as long as I'm in the 20-30 range I'd be happy.

    As for the guys, 10-20% is a good range. That 15% guy is probably the nicest. The ones below him make me think of boring clean eating and hours at the gym. I'd rather have a more relaxed guy than that.

    I'm like 25-30ish I guess.
    Idk.

    I'm quite happy with my weight tbh. I could lose a few lbs sure, and definitely tone up...but I think the lowest I'd go is 20%. I think my ideal weight would be a toned 120 lbs, and right now I'm a non-toned 128 lbs.

    As far as guys, 15-20% seems good.
    And I would hide my face in you and you would hide your face in me, and nobody would ever see us any more.

    females: 15-17% is my ideal. It's hard to say where I am because for some reason weight gain or loss doesn't affect my microscopic boobs at all. The wild guess is 25%

    males: between 15-20% is good, less than 15 look like plastic and more than 20 is too fat.

    I guess I belong to the 20% category (perhaps less, but not very muscular, anyway). The women with 20-35% look most attractive to me.

    I'm at 35% (female), going down to the 30% would be nice.

    As far as the men go, 15-25% ftw.

    about 35%-40%.

    these women have different body types besides just the weight so its not an easy call. i have smaller arms and thighs but a squishy stomach and i'm bigger than the 30%.

    i think 30% is the best looking but part of that is the lighting, her muscle tone, her natural body curves, etc.

    the guys in the middle row look the best to me. the 35% is okay with the distribution of it.

    oh hmmm... interesting. So i had a browse. Took this test to calculate body fat percentage...

    http://www.bmi-calculator.net/body-fat-calculator/

    says 26.99 but i'm sure i'm more as am short and it does not request height, my bmi was calculated as 25 at the clinic which is borderline between average and overweight.
    Actually i think there is a danger in these tests, gross miscalculations can be made etc. I think it's not hard to tell by the way you look and how much energy you have etc.

    I found more pics. The overly muscley people are incredible to look at... seem alienish... i don't think i could find that attractive... i'm not even sure it's accurate... Bruce Lee famously had an almost non existant percentage of body fat...guesses between 1%-5%




    The pictures only seem to account for people from average weight to obese... not from underweight/slight build.

    Now this is a story all about how, my type got changed, turned upside down. Just wait for a minute and watch chatbox right there, & I'll tell how Gem became the moderator with blue hair.

    In typology central friended and praised, on the picture thread was where she spent most her days. Chilling out, selfies, relaxing all cool, And all typing some people and getting them schooled.

    When a couple of girls who were up to no good, Started annoying her & her friends in the forumhood, She got in one little flame war & got pissed off & said 'I'm moving in with that exboyfriend in the forum with the socionics toffs.

    So Gem pulls up to the forum for a year without being a hater, And yells to typocentral 'Yo creeps! Smell Ya later', Became a mod in her kingdom she was finally there, To sit on her throne as the mod with blue hair.

    Well... according to one of those BMI calculators I'm 17.4% body fat, but that lady looks quite a bit thicker than me. The one Gem posted is actually a lot closer to my body type.

    I think the 15% male looks the best.

    I'm somewhere between 25 and 30%.
    As for guys, I sometimes go for really skinny ones... the types that bruise the insides of your thighs. O__o

    I think I'm a 25% for gals and I like the 20% for guys.

    On Geminatronix's I'd say I'm 17-18% and like 14-15%.

    I don't like bmi, but this one also gives a height to waist ratio, body fat%, and bmr.

    However, a better calculator would be one that included height with wrist or neck. Wrist would be better, though. Using the wrist, an approximate bone density is calculated based on light thin bones up to the heavier thick bones. But one of the easy ways to check that is to take the thumb and middle finger of one hand and wrap it around the wrist of the other. If they significantly overlap, you've got the thin light bones. If they touch or barely overlap, it's medium avg bones. And if they can't touch, then it's the thicker heavier bones.

    Though, personally, I agree that what's more important is the person's overall general health, and not their numbers. Numbers are just good for checking for minor changes as an objective feedback thing, but even better is checking for minor changes in specific health related issues.

    Oh hah, that one puts me at 25.9% body fat, the one posted before put me at 26.9 with the wrist measurement but interestingly idid the finger thumb test and they don't meet (really close to meeting, just shy). This would explain why people of larger body build appear to weigh less. E.g i went to the gym with a friend of mine approx the same height but she has more fatty mass... my measurements on waist and hips were significantly smaller yet i seemed to weigh notably more.

    Now this is a story all about how, my type got changed, turned upside down. Just wait for a minute and watch chatbox right there, & I'll tell how Gem became the moderator with blue hair.

    the one I posted has height, neck, waist, hip measurements. So far nobody seems to want to try it though lol. I think it's pretty accurate.

    Oops, as I was initially writing that post, I had "(like squark's)" after "neck". I forgot to put it back in after I rearranged and editted. Sorry.

    I did do it i just forgot to post the result, it was around 30%... likely most accurate... but it was a bit confusing as i had to put it all in feet and inches (for waist and hips?!?) rather than just inches... which was strange.

    yeah, a little odd. there was a metric tab too where you could use cm for everything though.

    As far as men go, being fat is unhealthy and sometimes nasty. But when veins bulge it's ugly and when muscles show without flexing (like a 6-pack) it shows the person has stupid hobbies and would be uncomfortable to lean against.

    This says my body fat is 16.2%.

    Too much is. I'm in favor of people staying in shape, but 6-packs really are unnecessary unless you're a mountain climber or a soldier or a superhero.

    BF calculators suck? Eh haven't checked those ones - unless they are for skinfold calipers, although I think they are +/- 2% accuracy.

    i got a pair of skinfold calipers, then I realised the mirror worked better, then I realised elasticated waistlines worked the best

    just got tested. 10% body fat, but I was dehydrated so that number is probably lower
    You can do anything with a bayonet except sit on it.
