Apparently competitive road racers are skinny, but when I look at long-distance cyclists, they are generally a lot more obese..
What would be the optimal bf% for a woman? I am dieting and start from 35% and aiming for 25%. Would 20% be a better though almost impossible goal? Or something in between.. I was weighing that much in 1997 but have no clue about BF% but as a result felt weak and hungry all the time... this was AFTER having successfully finished a very long distance ride, when I probably was around 28% BF but still too heavy to be a good climber.
