Anything sub 4% is for show and nothing more, not to maintain for any longer than a few days. It's unhealthy.
115lb seems like a low weight for you ...
i also like Yerba Mate as a stimulating infusion. You can get it 'unsmoked' and just make a sun tea if you don't want to boil it, which is how I prefer tea...
Thanks for commenting, VeganPotter and Lean & Green.
I'm not an expert neither. I always thought it was impossible to go under 4%, that the body would always keep a minimal amount of fat no matter what, most bodybuilders competing were at 4-6... until I saw your comp. pics Lean & Green ! saying you were at 1.3%. So I said 1% without thinking. But I didn't know it was dangerous. Of course I won't try that. I don't care about the bf% and I have no way to measure it, I just want to have enough definition on abs and quads, back, etc.
To be at 115 lb is also exagerating I guess. It would be possible only by losing also some lean mass, which I don't want. But 125-130 lb would be more correct. I'm only 5" 8. My brother is about the same height than me and was at 122 lb at one time, with very good muscular definition, Bruce Lee like. But since I have more lean mass, I would weight more for the same bf, about 130lb.
I've heard about sun infusions. I'm gonna try that during summer.
Here's two recipes perhaps you'll like to try:
Morning tonic drink
(I forgot the exact quantities but you can experiment)
Blend about 1 cup of pineapple or pineapple juice with 2 spoons of natural peanut butter and 1 or 2 cups or alfafa sprouts. Serve cold. Tastes good !
Green Tea antioxydant gelatin
2 1/2 cups of green tea
3 1/2 grape juice
2 spoons of Agar Agar vegetal gelatin powder
2 cups of mix berries (raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc...), drop the whole fruits in the drink
Pour hot tea on gelatin and mix, add other ingredients, put in the fridge in hermetic recipient.
