I did a DXA Scan on their brand new machine.

DXA Scan
Date: 3/2/2011 Time: 12:30PM
Weight: 157 lb.
Height: 5 ft 9 in
Body Fat: 13.7%
Muscle Mass: 132.6 lb.

I talked to the nurse about the new machine. The muscle mass was only off by 0.2 lb. I asked her why the machine was reading a higher body fat level than expected. She claimed that it may be confusing fat for water because I was an athlete and my fluids are constantly changing. She told me that this DXA machine tends to read body fat about 2% higher than it “may or may not be.” Which means that I am somewhere from 11.7 - 13.7% body fat.

My scale at home uses bioimpedence for body composition. I set it in athlete mode and it generally is 2% lower in body fat than regular mode. Interesting.

you didn’t have much fat to cut, you should have better spent your time bulking.

If he wasn’t happy with the way he looked, dude’s gotta do what he’s gotta do. To each his own, right?

Congrats on the cut! Bioelectrical impedance is always kind of annoying because of all the water issues :stuck_out_tongue:

I have those problem areas of fat, especially around the love handles and backside. This diet greatly reduced my entire body fat by 2-3% in about 4 weeks. That is awesome in my opinion! I have bulked my entire life and I needed a different approach. Now, since I’m lean I will head towards bulking again.

how did you incorporate the pulse fasts in with the V-Diet?

On week 4 of the V-Diet, I did a Pulse Fast the day before the HSM day and the day after the HSM day. This way, you maximize the anabolic effects of the re-feed and do not hold any excess water weight. I did a total of 6 Pulse Fasts the last 3 weeks of the V-Diet.

x2 as small as you were to start with, all you needed to do was up your cardio a bit.
