This post is to explain to you one of the cases I’ve seen.. The scale doesn’t always show the real facts of your body!
It is a an example of one of my patients measurements (after only 10 days) which seem quite interesting!
As you can see, weight increased by 0.5 kg!! (Although I can tell from the look that he lost a lot!) In fact a lot of people feel that they’ve lost a a lot of weight although it doesn’t show on the scale!!
Weight increased but if we go down to the TBW (the water mass), it increased by 4 kilos, Protein which is the muscle mass increased by 1.5 kg. BUT…. Fat mass went down from 63 kg to 57.5 kg, so 5.5 kg less!!
What matters is the fat mass! This is what I always look for!
Fad diets (fast ones) make you lose only water and muscles which are only short- term results. When you lose only water and muscles, you don’t feel that you’ve lost a lot of weight!!
Water mass went up to 64.8 kg so this person suffers from severe water retention! It is mainly caused by high consumption of sodium and/or not drinking enough water!! To flush out the extra water from our system, we need to consume 2 glasses of water before every meal and we don’t have to add salt to the food! Mr X, is now on a low salt diet!
Losing fat mass is the most important and harder thing! It needs patience, constant time and suitable food for everyone!
Going back to the picture, you can also see that the Waist to Hip Ratio has decreased by 2 factors which are equivalent to 4 cm!
As I told you before, muscle mass went up, that’s why the Metabolism is faster now! The more muscles you have, the higher is your metabolim!!
Biological Age also went down!! It was 36, now it’s 34!!
Great Job Mr X!! Keep it up!! 😉
