I was discussing this the other day and wasn’t able to speculate either way so does the amount of body fat have an overall influence on aerobic fitness? I’m not talking about someone who is in the overweight/obese category but for someone who would perhaps fall within the normal height/weight category. i.e. would a reduction or increase of body fat from let’s say 5% to 15% have an effect on their fitness? Apart for the increase/decrease in the power:weight ratio and overall efficiency etc.

:?

Short answer - no. You can be a "fatty" and still lay down the pain... as long as its not up hill and aerodynamics aren't the major concern.

Some reading, not the best but relevant.

Well Fat reduction is no doubt a complicated for the people in nowadays but it is possible to reduce fat with proper diet and exercise. So they have to strictly follow the diet plan which does not include fats and foods, which have been prepared in from oil. Then they also have to get exercise regularly for better results.
