I posted this earlier in my journal, but I'm pretty sure no one reads that and I actually am pretty curious. I've been using this calculator to estimate my body fat percentage for years, and though it may not be truly accurate, it should be accurate to itself. Before I left on vacation this past summer, it told me I was 23% with 89lbs of lean body mass. Over vacation, I exercised less, included rice and potatoes, and had more frequent cheats (every week vs every couple/three). I did it again yesterday, it said 23.7% (boo) but 95lbs of lean. Is this even possible? Did I truly gain 6lbs of lean body mass by taking a break form lifting and eating a lot (gained 10lbs total)? Doesn't seem right. I wasn't completely sedentary but nearly. I hiked/walked around a lot on the weekends. During the week I did a few body weight work outs (like zwows, super fast, super exhausting). Usually I do stonglifts 5x5, hike/walk to get around, snowboard in winter. Reason why I want to know is I was hoping to get back down to my previous weight, but if 6lbs of it is lean, would it be unrealistic for me to expect to get back there? Aka should I buy new pants
No announcement yet.
Is my weight loss goal unrealistic?
