    Hi my name is Alex and I have a question on how to get rid of a dark lining across my lower stomach. I use to be a little overweight but since lost the weight. My body fat is around 18-21% so I still have some fat. But it seems that the dark lining is not going away. I been doing ab excersises for months now. When I stretch the skin on the dark lining, the dark lining seems to disappear. So what should I do to get rid of it? Thanks.

  4. Jeff my girlfriend has gone from 26% body fat to 18% in 6 months. she currently takes no supplements. she is extremely dedicated to her workouts and diet. i take you rx supplements and love them. i was wondering if she should take the rx supplements I’m taking or just take the women’s supplement? she wants to get down in the 15 to 17% range.

    • Hi Jeff,

      Your joint supplements you feature here on Athlean-X.com are they for women also?

  5. Hi! Thank you so much for posting this. My scale is a sad thing. I’ve only manage to loose 4 kilos in five months, but I’ve got from 33% fat to 28% fat in two months. Sometimes I get sad that my scale doesn’t show so much progress, but I’m throwing it out. I’m really proud of my achievements and your videos are really motivating. Thank you again

    • I never weigh myself because the scale does tell the whole picture. I go by the measuring tape and and how my clothes fit along with taking fat measurements and if you are strength training with weights then the scale will go up because you are building muscle

  6. I am at 27 percent body fat. I am what you consider a cello/ hourglass shape so most of my weight is in my hips, butt and breast area. My waist is the smallest part of my body

  7. Hello, my name is Nour, I’m suffering from the 15-17% fat, and I’ve tried almost everything I worked out at home for about 6 months because I wasn’t able to sign in a gym and now that I did it’s been 2 months and I’m taking supplements that burn fat like Garcinia and L-Carnitine and I’ve changed my whole meal plans and nothing has worked so far, pleaaaase what do you recommend?? I hate my belly fat!!

    Thank you for this article on body fat for women. I am 49 and the mother of 8. I am doing the Athleanx for men with my husband. By the pictures here, I’m guessing about 23 percent body fat, 5’5″ and 143 lbs. Do you have an ab/core workout for those of us women who had had many kids and babies over 10lbs as things have been stretched. Please let me know

  9. Hi Jeff,

    Thank you for this informative article. I do have a question though and I hope that you can find the time to reply to me.

    I am a 23 year old female, 165cm, around 60kg and had 15,6% body fat about 2 months ago. I am even leaner now although I don’t know the exact %. I exercise 5 times a week and combine different sports (weekly: 1/2 x HIIT, 2 x Martial arts, 2/3 x weight lifting, 1x endurance run). I eat very healthy with lots of protein and healthy fats, I don’t drink alcohol or sodas (water, tea, coffee only).

    My question is: I can’t see my 2 lower abs (the 2 on the middle are starting to become more defined), and I don’t know why or what I am doing wrong, so I was hoping that you could advise me.

    Thank you in advance!
