The average bodybuilder eats several times a day trying to avoid even having a completely empty digestive tract. Do some of you think your intestines are black holes? Your waist is the most variable measurement in your whole body because it depends on when you last ate and how much waste is present.
If you are the type who starves themselves and barely eats anything, then yes, you just may not have much "protrusion" ever. You also won't ever have big muscles.
Some of you are a little too vain. You miss basic logic because of what you want to see.
This is why so many are WRONG when they try to point out "gh gut" on every person possible. You don't get really big arms without some really big eating and if your stomach sticking out a little sometimes is that much of an issue....good luck ever making much progress.
The OP isn't exactly "6%" body fat...nor should he try to be unless that is specifically his goal. I am also guessing he has eaten food in the last 24 hours.
