Hello, i just had a question concerning body composition. I have an electronic tester for body fat percentage, when i initially started the programme i was 188lbs and 13.2% body fat, after the first week i have dropped down 7lbs, but my body fat has only decreased by 0.2%.
According to the results (which were taken 3 times and all gave the same reading to ensure correctness) it means that during my first week i have lost 1.3lbs of protein but at the “cost” 5.7lbs of whatever else (i assumed muscle), I am worried that this is all muscle and by the end of the programme, whilst being thinner i will have lost a large amount of muscle!
Does the diet take some time to actually start burning fat or has my body just reacted poorly to the diet? I have followed the programme EXACTLY, walked for 1 hour 15 minutes each day as my NEPA, and completed all the workouts to 100% effort. I am currently unsure whether to continue the diet as i do not wish to lose a lot of muscle mass! Please help!
