    Unhappy week 1 - .1 kilo weight loss but lost 2% body fat..how?

    Hi everyone. I started Primal a week ago and at my weigh in yesterday I found out that I only lost less than 1 pound if that. The weird part is I lost 2% BMI and total body fat! How is that possible? If the body fat is gone shouldn't the weight go too? Does my body have to get rid of body fat before I see weight loss results? Confused

    First off, it's been a week. Give it time.

    Second off, do you mean BF%? Those are notoriously inaccurate.

    BF is Body Fat. I use a special weigh in machine at Boots the chemist ( I live in UK) it gives a printed readout for BMI, and total Body fat plus weight. I was under the impression that they were very accurate. Maybe I should do the weigh in every 2 weeks?

    Jesus, it's only been a week. The PB is not some crash course diet.

    I don't place stock in those machines, personally, and if I remember correctly, neither does Mark.

    Weight is just a really inaccurate way to measure. It doesn't take into account hydration, bloating, bone re-mineralization, muscle growth, timing of urination and bowel movements, etc.

    How you look in the mirror, how your clothes fit, measurements, etc are far better forms of measurement.

    Every two weeks is about the absolutely most often I would weigh. Every six months would be better, IMO. TEHO.

    no..a crash course diet would have you loose tons of weight in a small amount of time! I was just expecting to loose more than .1 kilo! Thats like the weight of a bulb of garlic! What I am asking is what in the BLEEEPING PRIMAL DIET makes you loose BMI before weight!! I was just curious so no need to take my BLEEPING head off!

    What are you talking about? If you've lost BODY MASS INDEX points, then you have LOST WEIGHT. Your question makes no sense.
