The Best BODY FAT Percentage for Jawline Definition (?)

  • by Matt Phelps

You Can't Have a Jawline if You Are FAT

Here's How Lean You Need to Be...


🔎 Revealed on this page...

  • 🏥 "That's not healthy..." – healthy and beauty standards are so screwed up these days... find out what should be normal. Not what is normal.

    •  🔥 23 NATURAL Jawline Transformations (Weight Loss): losing weight is literally the simplest, best thing you can do to chisel your jawline and improve your looks. Seriously. Look at what happened to these guys!


    Every single time I get "lean", I get compliments on my appearance.

    Girls turn their heads at me in cafes and bars.

    And I feel a hundred times more confident in myself.

    When I'm a bit chubbier, I don't get compliments at all.

    Apparently, I'm just one of those guys: when I'm lean, I look like a movie star (forgive my immodesty).

    But when I'm NOT lean... I just look like an average Joe.

    And I'm almost always NOT lean.

    I'm never fat. But I'm always hovering around 16% body fat.

    I just find it so hard to stay lean!

    I've been mewing and chewing for 2 years at this point.

    I know I have a great jawline underneath, but that last step is really essential for making it show: slimming.

    You can have a razor sharp jaw shape and bulging masseter muscles, but if you're fat, nobody will be able to see your chiseled jawline.

    Heck, you don't even have to be fat.

    You can just be not lean.

    You might look ok/good at 15% body fat.

    But when you get to 8%, you might look like a male model.

    Those last few pounds make an enormous difference.

    Especially if you're like me: face fat is the last to go.

    For some reason, I can have a 6-pack but still have chubby cheeks.

    Others are the opposite: they have a beer gut, but a lean face.

    That part is really just your genetics and there's not much you can do about it.

    So the moral of the story is: get lean and stay lean.

    Seriously, it is the most effective thing you can do to become more attractive and improve your confidence.

    Obviously, it's not that easy in modern times.

    We have access to so much enticing junk, plenty of extra time for eating, and we hardly have to even move our bodies anymore.

    I said it was simple. Not easy.

    But when everyone else has a chubby, unchiseled face... you'll really stand out if you put in the work to get lean.

    If you don't have amazing facial genetics, you can at least get ahead by outworking others by getting lean when they stay chubby.

    I usually get excited when something is simple but hard.

    That means everyone else with less discipline won't bother to do it.

    It's a barrier that keeps others out.

    When everyone else is looking for the silver bullet, you've had time to shoot 100 lead bullets.

    I didn't mean to turn this into a David Goggins motivational rant haha.

    My point is: do the hard, boring, annoying work that others aren't willing to do.

    And you'll get results that others won't.

    Now let's answer the question you came here for 👇




    What's the Best Body Fat % for Jawline?

    For men, it's around 8-9% body fat.

    And for women: it's around 15-17% body fat.

    Your jawline will become more defined and chiseled the lower your body fat goes.

    But it's around these ranges that the extra definition is offset by the extra vascularity and gaunt look that accompanies it.

    Once you start getting too lean, it no longer looks good.

    But I wouldn't worry about that haha, it's extremely hard to reach these levels anyway.

    It reminds me of this meme:

    women weight lifting meme

    Girls think that they'll get bulky if they lift weights... as if it is that easy


    So don't worry about getting too lean.

    You also don't need to worry about getting too rich, or too muscular lol.

    NOTE: these body fat percentage ranges are for fully grown adults between the ages of 18 and 35.

    It's much harder to maintain a lean body as you get older and your sex hormones decrease and HGH levels decrease.

    Luckily, as you get older, your face holds less fat and is lean at higher body fat levels.

    How Do I Know What My Body Fat % Is?

    Everybody thinks they're taller than they are.

    If somebody tells you they are 6'1... measure them and they'll be 5'11.5.

    That's just how it is.

    Everybody adds an inch or two.

    It's kind of the same with body fat.

    People are terrible at estimating it.

    You're almost always fatter than you think.

    I've seen guys estimate their body fat at 9% when they were 16%!

    If you're really serious about it, and I think you should be, you'll go get a DEXA scan.

    That will tell you your body fat %, muscle mass %, and bone density %.

    It's really cool to set your benchmarks and measure yourself against them once a year or so.

    If that's a bit too serious for you, you should compare yourself to others with the body fat percentage you are targeting.

    Try to see if you have the same level of muscle definition (not muscle mass) and whether your veins are as visible.

    This is a decent way of getting a ballpark idea of where you are.
