    Why are you starving yourself? Does being that weight help your cycling, and is that why you're trying to be so light? Or was getting down to 150lbs an "accident"?

    But why would that make you want to be 150lbs? Or why would you care if a HUGELY inaccurate machine say your fat percentage isn't?

    How tall are you?

    If you're worried about ageing well, why not get stronger? The stronger you are, the better you'll age(within reason of course). If you really think about this, you'll know that I'm right.

    None of that will get you strong.

    Do you like being the size you are now? Would you like to be smaller still? I mean, you're not a little kid, yet you want to be the size of one?

    Your 150lbs at 5'9, I am 152lbs at 5'7, If you have a average amount of muscle your body fat should be around the 10% mark.

    Well you posted in the wrong forum if you wanted any sympathy for being a cyclist or being at a weight conductive for cycling. This is pretty much a jock protein shake down-in-one followed by steak and squatting place.

    Are you on a mountain bike? 14 is low-ish. 17-18 are good averages depending on where you're riding. I would personally forget the calculations. If you're losing weight but feel energetic then you've got it right. If you stop losing weight you need to start eating less and if you feel worn out often then you're over-doing it. The "science" is too imprecise unless you've got your own personal coach. It sounds like you're in the right ball park. 500 calories deficit/day is a fair average to have over a week. The problem with cycling is that it burns so many calories it's very easy to peak a 1000 calorie deficit one day and just break even the next if you don't cycle.

    You've lost a substantial amount fairly fast though - well done Cycling is amazing huh But seriously, cycle faster.
