Low body fat

I'd say I have a low bodyfat % - around 9-10%

Would this make excretion more difficult?

I had the same amount of BF while taking 30,000 IU of Vitamin A a day and got very sick and intoxicated about 3 and a half months in, which is pretty fast compared to others. (Never ate any food high in VA up until that moment)

I'm wondering if a low bodyfat to start out with would work against me/others who have the same problem

I had like 6 percent when i took accutane and it completely fucked me up.

it makes a lot of sense

Would be interesting to study this idea. Perhaps those prone to immediate VA toxicity lack the switch to start gaining more weight in order to increase lipid stores.

Would be interesting to see how many Accutane sufferers are ectomorphs.

I think it definitely affected me, finding it much easier to gain lean mass now, in the last 6 months.

Do you mean it's easier to put on muscle after you went low VA?

Yes, I have been lifting weights for a long time, testing many of the different fad diets.  Low VA has definitely given the most dramatic changes(gaining weight but staying lean).   Now whether it is low/zero VA or that I just eat mainly rice/beef, not really sure, but happy with the results.
