I grew up fat during adolescence, was a skinny boy but parents saw sports as dangerous and fed me a high carb diet, keeping away from a lot of sports in my youth. Never looked good without a shirt on my entire life.
Lost a few after high school but have mainly been in the 25-30% BF range, looking somewhat normal without a shirt on but hideous with it off. Seem to get a lot of fat around my stomach and chest area (have moobs unfortunately).
Currently stand at like 5'11, weigh 180 lbs or so (fluctuates between that and 176), and BF is anywhere from 25-30%. Probably even a little over 30% based on pics of bodyfat percentage estimates I have seen.
I want to be built like David Gandy or an MMA fighter type of body, wonder if it is possible at this age. I hear them say after a while your body gets so used to what you have done through life that fat cells, make it impossible to get fit.
I am not a scientist, but one just need some common sense to tell you: No it is not (I hope your question doesn't imply an expectation for the opposite answer to stay in the comfort zone; no serious member here wil tell you "Yes it is impossible").
As I was 21 I was also slightly overweight. I started with running and some weight training around this age, and kept these habits until today. I train daily, no exception.
I don't have a killer body (I have unfortunately some bad eating habits), but I think I look decent for my age and have a better body than 98% of other 40 y/o dudes (with full-time job).
What the best thing to start with I cannot tell you exactly. This article perhaps:
Is your overall aim to get laid? Or do you want to be a fitness model/compete in bodybuilding?
I havent got a killer body rn but I sure as fuck have spent months obsessing over obtaining one and watching a silly amount of workout videos on yt. Obsessed over diets and gym schedules.
You don't need a killer body to get laid. You just need to get to above average, which is easily doable in your mid to late twenties (I'm 27 in January). Obsessing over an elite body is just a fast track to becoming the lonesome bodybuilder Chris talks about
Social loser til 19
Virgin til 22
Now I travel, party and get laid
Stuff to do:
Stick to cut and gym schedule
Make dat money
Even age 47 wouldnt be too late for a killer body naturally for the majority of males. not sure why you would ask such a question. lots of office guys are out of shape until age 40 and then finally decide to get in shape
Get first tattoo 1/1 DONE
Get laid twice from cold approach or Tinder 5/2 DONE
Cut down to 92 rock hard kg (currently:95 kg)
Improve Reflux and stomach ulcers
Get laid 3 times 0/3

Get better at technician job
Cut down to 92 rock hard kg with joint-saving workouts only; no more Ego lifting (currently 95kg)
27??? Shit dude you're way too old to achieve any goals, best to give up. 27 is old and gross, your body literally isn't capable of losing weight at this age, and you have zero testosterone so you won't be able to gain muscle/strength either.
(This is sarcasm - I'm 32 and only started hitting the gym about age 29. Only started getting laid properly aged 28. It is never too late, and 27 is fucking young dude. Cracks me up when a 20-something thinks they're "old". We're not old til we're in our 50's.)

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
