Every so often, I check my body fat percentage to make sure the weight that I’m gaining is from muscle.

I spent my twenties in the single digit range. And when I eat right, I can always expect the same results.

So I had a complete melt down + total freak out when I landed squarely at 14% this week.

Until I read this statement in a research article:

” A longtime rule of thumb is the fitness community has been that people tend to gain the most muscle at 10-15% body fat.”

Once again, I am reminded that we are all provided with exactly what we need, when we need it, in order to accomplish what we need.

I guess the only unnecessary fat here is in my own head.
