(1) To establish, primarily for my trainees, how little food is actually required for optimum performance. and this is because my typical trainee SERIOUSLY needs to get a handle on their eating.
(2) Because guys in particular are hung-up on being 'too light.'
(3) And because guys in particular almost always exaggerate how lean they really are. As an example, when a guy says, "I'm under 10% bodyfat", he's probably just under 15% BF. Now, mind you, I don't browbeat anyone into what you might consider extreme weight-loss. Rather, I'm just trying to be real.
Also, bear in mind that we're not all built alike. Bodyweight can be HIGHLY deceiving. No doubt you're a bigger person than I am to begin with. I put the 'ecto' in ectomorph. I was 6 pounds and 22'' at birth, 30 pounds when I was three and was 6-0 135 in college.
