>>what is the best way to raise bodyfat levels?

With 67% of American overweight/over fat, just watch them. :)

Basically, consume more calories than you are burning, but make sure your calories are healthy as you don't want to hurt yourself in the process.

>>How come a very skinny person can have a high bodyfat percentage?

It is possible and can happen if they have low muscle mass and high fat stores for their weight. Usually a result of years of unhealthy lifestyle and unhealthy dieting and inactivity.

>>What can cause such a low body fat percentage when one is still strong and muscular?

This is the goal of most all competitive bodybuilders and many weightlifters and athletes. Very controlled eating and exercise habits focusing on the proper combinations of aerobic exercise, resistance training and dieting.

>>>why don't u recommend flaxseed oil as I hear lots of talk about how taking it is so beneficial.

These days we hear lots of talk about how everything from chocolate to coffee is healthy. Most of it, is really marketing and advertising disguised as health information.

The body has requirements for certain nutrients not foods. Oils are highly processed and refined foods.

Flaxseed oil is not anything I would recommend.

If someone was wanting to get the benefit of the nutrients in flax, I would recommend they choose the flaxseed and not the oil.

I have helped 10s of 1000s build optimal health and reverse disease and never once did we use flaxseed oil. Neither is it a part of any of the long lived populations and/or centenarians diets.
