Our expert says:
The average fat percentage for normal, healthy women is 24%, thus you are already 3% lower than normal. According to Prof Tim Noakes, only the top female athletes have a fat percentage 10%, which is still double that of elite male runners. This difference is due to the difference in fat distribution in males and females. Body fat is a biological necessity in women because of their child-bearing capacity and unless you become anorexic (which you are leaning towards with your BMI of 18), you cannot achieve such a low percentage without doing yourself harm. Forget about this stupid machine, start enjoying your life and the fact that you have a beautiful figure even if it is rather thin. Your ideal weight would be 62 kg. Don't let this obession spoil your young life.
Take great care
