Can anyone tell me what a normal body fat% should be.... Before starting LL my body fat scales wouln't register my body fat (if over 50% my scale would only show FATE, i'm asuming this meant fatal?:eek: ). Within the first 2 weeks they showed 48.9% body fat now i'm down to 33.2%......What is a normal range? Does anyone know?

Not a silly question at all. The scales send a small and harmless current through your body. It goes through muscle faster than fat or bones and measures it that way.

It isn't really related to BMI. BMI is just taken from figures, where the bodyfat scales (if accurate) 'sees' inside the body.

My BMI though just about heathy (borderline overweight), my bodyfat scales put me at a low level...in fact, under average as I have a fair amount of muscle.

Be afraid...be very afraid :D
