    BMI is not an accurate measurement of body fat. Someone was wondering why their husband has a higher BMI than them when he's fitter etc? Well BMI makes no allowance for the relative proportions of bone, muscle and fat in the body. But bone is denser than muscle and twice as dense as fat, so a person with strong bones, good muscle tone and low fat will have a high BMI.
    Also, our bodies distribute fat differently - this is evident in the various body shapes we all have - and this also affects accuracy. To that end, what is considered underweight, ideal weight, overweight and obese is essentially bogus.

    175cm and 90kg for me. And I'd blow the BMI to hell as I'm 6 months pregnant. HAHAHA.

    I lost most of the weight I gained in pregnancy doing Michelle Bridges and I had the most dramatic changes in my figure when I did her lean and strong component. After I finished though I just couldn't live on her program anymore it was physically draining. I started working with a body building coach and now I train with a powerlifitng coach. I train pretty heavy weights but I think people don't necessarily have to lift the amount I lift to get results. I'd say what really helped give me a butt (I had a really flat but before) and waist would mainly be squats and deadlifts. I also do some isolating exercises for my glutes and ham strings but I really feel working those muscles hard gives you a good shape.

    If you keep just that little bit of fat over it and don't lean out to much I think that helps with the shape too. Women have this real misconception that touching weights will turn them into heman but you only get that ripped look when you drop to a really low body fat. If you stick around 20-30 % you still have that muscle built underneath but the extra body fat gives you the soft curves. Women (unless they have some imbalance) just simply don't have enough testosterone to build muscle like men. Those huge body building women you see are on testosterone shots and steroids.

    I squat 100kg, deadlift 120kg and bench 60kg but I don't think I at all look like a man. I mean bench has probably been the only thing that's kind of bulked me up top but I'm naturally broad in the shoulders.

    Me too. Serious badonka donk. Like I mean that Flo Rider song is possibly about me.

    My BMI is 26. Which makes me overweight. But I hold it all in the rear. I've recently lost 11cms off my hips which makes my butt look even bigger.

    I don't think you look like a man either, Trusty. But in addition to your training, you would have revised your nutrition too, wouldn't you?

    My badonka donk is so cushy that i sit on things all the time and dont even know it. Its like a family joke.

    Remotes? Cant feel it, ds's pencil case? Nope dont realise.

    One time ds was looking for his stuffed dog he sleeps with. Dh said "your mother is prolly sitting on it" i was so offended! "I think i would know if THAT was under me" *stands up* *see's stuffed dog under me* we were all in hysterics

    Maybe me?

    If so I'm just more comfortable with myself at a lighter weight. I don't like what I am currently. For me it just feels wrong.

    Yeah definately. Unlike some people I know from MB I didn't go too aggressively because I come from a long history of bulimia and ed so I didn't want to go back there. I had to do a bit of work on re adding things into my diet but I didn't have to work extremely hard to repair myself as I didn't do too much damage.

    In general I eat way more food now because of my training. For example when I go to the gym I drink a whole bottle of powerade and a protein shake that has about 30gr carbs and 30gr of protein. I haven't tracked my macros or calories for a while but I'd say I'd eat around 2000 calories a day and about 200gr of carbs (which is apparently on the lower side but not as low as it had been in the past.If I don't eat enough carbs and protein I risk loosing my muscle and strength.

    I know I could easily go on a keto diet (low carb) or cut my calories to 1200 to get much leaner but I would never sacrifice my muscle for that. I'm hoping to compete at national level next year and there are girls in my division who deadlift 180kg, bench 80kg and squat 160kg so I have a lot of work to do and not eating will not improve my chances.
