Have you ever felt like you were addicted to the scale? Have you ever judged your progress based on that number? Well, most people have no idea that changes in weight do not usually reflect changes in body fat, and there's a lot more to the story!
Tune in to today's episode to discover how it is that you can be doing amazing work, and the scale might not budge at all... and why it's so very important to get body composition testing done for an accurate assessment of your progress!
7:49 Weighing yourself is one of the most misleading ways to tell if you're losing fat or not... most of the time, it's totally inaccurate!
10:29 If you lose one and a half pounds of muscle with every 4 pounds of fat, by the time you've lost 20 pounds of fat, you've lost 6 pounds of muscle. Think about that ... Do you want to lose 6 pounds of muscle mass just to lose 20 pounds of fat? Muscle burns calories for you even while you're sleeping!
20:17 I never recommend setting weight loss goals. You don't want weight loss. Really, you don't. You want fat loss. You want lots of lean muscle mass that will burn calories for you while you sleep. And in order to do this, you have to be, very, very careful with your nutrition.
