I just completed my 1st round of Releana, and lost 19 pounds. Was hoping for more of the 3/4 to 1 pound/day, but I am not complaining. I have stuck to the protocal religiously, and am hoping for great numbers this go around. I am 56 yrs old, and not the most active person. I started at 194 pounds and am hoping to finish at 150.
The doctor measured my weight and by body fat percentage before starting and yesterday after the 30 days. My question is how do you calculate the actual fat pounds vs. the muscle & water loss. I read somewhere that there was a way to calculate it, but can't seem to find it anywhere. I would like to know that I am loosing the fat, and not the little muscle that I have left.
Any help would be appreciated.
Keep up the great work everyone. Would love to have others posting as well. The success of this site is only as good as the input from others.
I have a way for you to calculate your body fat percentage. Keep in mind that the best time to use this formula, is in the morning. Your body weight and waist measurements are the most accurate just after you wake up from having 7 to 8 hours of sleep. Here it is, I hope this is what you were looking for...
