I've read online that for typical women (meaning, not athletes) 20-25% body fat is what is seen as healthy. My problem is I don't have a visual reference of what this would look like. Does anyone have any pictures of themselves (that you're comfortable sharing) or other reference sources of women at 20-25% body fat?

In my profile there is a pic of me in a black bikini top and shorts and I think I was about 20-21% body fat at that time.

Here is a website where you can see what different women look like at different weights. I don't think it lets you search by % body fat but if you know what you would weigh with a specific % body fat you can look up that weight.

This includes pics of men and women if you scroll down.

Feel free to look at me. I dont have any stomach pictures up. Last month I was at 23%. My current profile picture was from this week.

Well, remember, since weight sits on different people in different ways, there is no single description or visual of was a person with 20% Body Fat would look like. You must also take into account the amount of muscle that person has on their body, since it will factor into the percentage.

The best I can do is offer you my own picture, as I have just under 20% body fat in my system.

A few months back I was 25%...bought one of those scales with the calculators in it (and followed all of the directions) and it said I was at 23% this morning, and my profile pic was this morning too lol
