    Body fat is 8.9
    Metabolic age is 15
    Bmi 19
    Body water 65%
    Muscle mass 50.2kg%
    Visceral fat 1 unit
    Bone 2.7%
    I'm a 30 year old male and I'm about 60kg and I got all the info from my gym (they weighed me and measured me) and I'm not going to pretend to understand most of it

    Your pretty much just lacking muscle mass in general bf% is low but that's because your overall weight is light so I'm assuming your not a very big guy. Calorie intake should be based off what goals your trying to achieve I would start with maybe trying to consume about 1800- 2200 calories per day calories you would burn on a day to day basis are based on your activities during the day hard to monitor those unless your good with maths and calculations. Best thing to eat is all the basic foods like eggs, oats, fish, chicken, beef, rice, sweet potatoes etc. no need for extra carbs in mass gainers just get a simple whey isolate to have after your workout. Don't eat to get full eat to eat.

    @RetSwerb my goal is not to get big or fat but to get toned, so I can do kip up (kick up) and dragon fly. I'll be trying to eat right, I eat every 2 - 3 hours already but probably not the food I need. So I'll be having oats for breakfast (quick oats, full cream milk and a spoon of Milo on the top) snack oat bar, lunch not sure maybe 2 min BBQ teriyaki noodles (or any suggestions), snack banana and dinner rump stake (I know a butcher and I get him to cut the fat off) rice and vegetables. I'll be looking at getting that whey isolate also.

    Thanks for taking time out to help me.

    Probably cut out the noddles and replace that with veggies or like 4 egg whites lots of sodium in noodles. Oat bar is ok there's another brand I buy it's a nut bar with 10 grams of protein in it. Swap full cream for skin I usuallly just eat my oats raw with brown sugar and cinnamon red meats good twice a week swap the other nights for chicken or fish and keep that fat on the steak. Weight training keep it simple 50-70% max weight and high reps.

    Yeah I decided to check out the noodles and I've swapped to a chicken wrap (insert funny meme here). With spinach, lettuce and carrot.

    I don't try to over do the weights also I try to keep a pace, I also do a full body work out once a week in a fitness class and is it normal to not feel sore after workouts ?

    Yes I was I'm always hungry, I have a full meal and eat until I feel full (not sick full but full) and then about 2 - 3 hours later I'm hungry so I have a snack.

    Yeah when your body finds a routine it becomes second nature hence why there's a lot of info out there and different excerises and other tricks to shock the muscles etc. or your not training hard enough
