A bit bemused by my latest body composition readings
Hi, I had another body composition test on Thursday and I'm a bit confused.....
From Jan 2nd to Feb 7th I dropped 7.1kg of fat and gained 2.6kg of lean weight.....very successful as I was following the PB closely.
My last body composition test (very expensive electronic machine) stated that since Feb 7th I have lost a further 0.6kg, but gained 0.7kg of fat (currently 16.8%) and lost 1.3 of lean weight.....quite the backward step!
I'm not that disturbed by the reading, because my clothes are a lot looser around the waist, and the mirror continues to show dramatic improvement in my physique.
I am, however, a bit intrigued by the stats.
I'm doing the IF easily for 16 hours per day.
Food intake is approx 2000 cals per day as I am trying to lose body fat:
LHT days (3 days non consecutive per week)
Non training days
I posted a thread in the nutrition section a couple of days ago asking for thoughts or advice from peeps that have been doing this a while and can comment on plateau's etc, and so far I have been blown away by the responses.. 1 REPLY, and that was questioning the accuracy of the equipment.
Oh well, at least I have the PB book to refer to on how to deal with a plateau.
I'll still post here every month as it helps keep my focus.
Commenced PB Jan 2nd 2012.
86.1kg, 23% bodyfat
Last assessment July 5 2012 - 78.4kgs 13.7% bodyfat
My goal is to:
Maintain PB lifestyle of diet and exercise.
Maintain weight of around 80kgs and 12% bodyfat.
