comment What is the minimal body fat percentage with no risks?
Downvoted for the reason described by JohnP. Being at that BF% is unrealistic and dangerous long-term, and thus does not meet the "without suffering negative effects" criteria. Perhaps go into more detail on what BF% is typically seen in athletes to help give a safer and more realistic expectation for goal-setting

comment Will the starvation mode /muscle loss happen if I eat just enough to keep me not hungry?
@rrirower this question is about dieting with respect to building muscle and minimizing fat gains in the context of a workout program. I believe this is perfectly in scope for this site.

Let us ignore the huge impact that training, experience, and technique factor into this (all of which would give her the victory), and just address the elephant in the room: in a battle of strength it all comes down to who has more strength (she does, by a few miles) and gender has no bearing on that, only the physical condition and training regimen of the athletes.

comment What can I do to stay fit in the car?
For the love of all that is good, just focus on driving safely and don't do anything stupid or distracting while you're in the car. Focus on trying to exercise in the other 88% of the time you are awake and consider this time off limits / sunk cost. If you really care that much about it and still insist, then find a way to cut the drive time or commute via bus/train/bike where you can actually stand and exercise in a safe environment.

comment How do i fulfill my protein requirements without taking protein powders?
@user9197 there are many websites that serve as databases for nutritional information on foods. One example is Nutrionix. As for other considerations, I would personally start with the "If It Fits Your Macros (IIFYM)" to see high level macro requirements for your body type, link here. I agree with Eric that whole foods should be focus of diet, with protein powder as an after-thought / supplement to fill in the gaps.

comment How can I ensure I am working the muscles in each leg equally?
If you are coming here for a diagnosis, then I can tell you that you are in the wrong place. It is clear you have an underlying problem preventing you from properly recruiting your leg muscles. As I've said twice already, the only way to correct that is by seeing a trained professional to identify the problem and prescribe treatment in the form of mobility/stretch exercises, strength training, or worst-case, medicine/braces/surgery.

comment How can I ensure I am working the muscles in each leg equally?
As I said, it is a combination of mobility stretches, strength building over time, and seeing a PT to actually diagnose what the underlying issue might be. (though obviously not in that order). Any more specific than that would be 1) impossible to answer without examination, and 2) out of scope for this site

comment Good resistance bands for the office?
I am having a hard time accepting this premise. If you have 30 minutes free time after work, then what's stopping you from going to the gym on the way home? If there is no gym in the area, then what about building a home gym and working out there? I can see no reason why you should be limiting yourself to working out in a cubicle when better options exist. Once you allow yourself to workout from home, your options open up tremendously so you no longer have to limit yourself to just bands.
