Fat Loss


Right now I'm cutting. Is there a period during the dieting/cutting process, where the scale weight is going down, but the appearance of your physique seems to stay the same?

What does this mean?


it means you need to stop looking at yourself every hour. Don't take your shirt off in front of a mirror for a week.


patience, just cuz you lost a little weight doesn't mean you're going to start looking cut in the mirror.

you need to give us more info though if u want a useful answer.

Your weight, Bf%, how many calories you're taking in, etc.


I say screw the scale. Never did me any good when trying to cut up. (Then again, I'm basically just a skinny bastard who says he lifts things...)
