Changing your profile-level body fat range will have a small effect on your protein recommendations if you’re using a “Coached” program. Protein targets are calculated using a rough estimate of your lean body mass. If you’re not quite sure which body fat range you fall in, don’t overthink your selection – the protein recommendations for adjacent body fat ranges don’t differ enough to meaningfully affect your progress.
