    confused by your question a bit. ne body at any weight and height would be better off at 10% bf as opposed to 20%. Sounds like ur buddy is a big dude tho.

    Do the BMI calculations: Calculate Your BMI - Standard BMI Calculator

    Its not necessarily the best way to look at things in terms of "What is healthy" (i.e. most top notch BB athletes would probably calculate to being obese for their height / wt - but not looking at bodyfat. But it does speak to "average" people.

    At that height and weight, your boy is either stacked or flabby. Stacked is better.

    I would just go on the belly. Find out the size of his jeans. At 5'7" I would think if they're 34 or less then he's ok.

    Welcome to IMF - suggest you start a new thread instead of going off on a sidebar in this one. Please also include the details of your diet right now. I.e. list your current meal plan & portions. Put a typical day's meal plan into a food counts program like FitDay - Free Weight Loss and Diet Journal and post up the total cals and macronutrient breadkdown (% & grams of protein, fats & carbs) for your whole day's meal plan.

    Also please list your current training regimen and your stats.

    Often the sugar cravings can be brought under some control by cutting out the really sugary stuff and processed crap in your diet, Schedule a once per week cheat meal (not DAY) where you can look forward to some of whatever is your favorite cheat. Random cheats are usually one of the biggest ways to sabotage your diet.
