I’ve been on the V-diet for a week now and I did my weekly weigh-in this morning and got some unnerving numbers.
My weight has gone down around 6 lbs, but my bioelectrical impedance analysis device claims that my bf% has risen by 1.8… Assuming I did the math correctly, that would mean I have lost over 9 lbs of lean body mass and gained about 3.5 lbs of fat… Is that even possible? My bf% device isn’t fool-proof, but it has shown pretty accurately gains and losses in fat before.
My weight is a bit under 300 lbs at the moment and my bf% is 32-34% (34% if that last measurement was accurate).
360 g of protein
52 g of fat
24 g of carbs (40 g on training days)
I try to walk an hour every morning (I did skip a few mornings due to a blizzard) and workout 3 times a week.
Am I doing something wrong or is my bf% device just messing with me?
