Bogus Fat Loss

October 2, 2009


Here’s a bit of interesting information for the dieters out there. The general trend of weight loss for dieters is one where the weight lost during the first week of dieting is comprised of 70% water weight loss, 5% protein (muscle) loss, and 25% fat loss.  Progressively, over time, the amount of weight loss that comes from actual fat loss increases so that by week 4, 85% of the weight lost comes from fat and 15% comes from protein. This points out the importance of measuring body fat percentage instead of just body weight, and the importance of sticking to a calorie deficit over an extended duration in order to achieve true fat loss.
