I am a long time lurker, first time poster. Thank you all for your thoughtful contributions.
To the point: I was wondering at approximately what body fat percentage you guys have lost noticeable chest fat, if you have experienced it.
Basically, I have about 24% or so body fat, and I don’t look terribly bad or fat, but I have what I believe is fat around my nipples, and it sort of makes them look pointy a little bit. It’s probably visibly noticeable through shirts and stuff, and I especially would not like to take my shirt off publicly because of it. I’ve had this for as long as I can remember, and I’m SICK OF IT!
I am pretty sure it isn’t gyno, because it doesn’t feel like the tissue there is a different… “texture” if you will, from the body fat in the surrounding area.
Anyhow, for goal setting purposes, I would like to hear from people who have gotten over this problem. I’ve read that chest fat is kind of a pain in the ass to lose. I’ve been steadily losing weight over the past 6 months, from about 235 lbs. at 32% body fat if I recall correctly, to about 190 lbs. at 24%. I realize I lost some lean body mass, but I’d like to get rid of the chest fat before I start bulking up again.
