If you lose 24 pounds of excess body fat, I can tell you, the difference is huge, you will look so good!
This imaginary case where the result will be:
Starting weight, Ai 200 pounds (120 pounds of lean body mass and 80 pounds of fat storage (= 40%))
Lose 24 pounds of pure fat = 56 pounds of fat stored.
If we increase lean body mass, the remaining fat, we get the total weight of 176 pounds.
This means that a new body fat percentage was 32%.
Therefore, even if an obese person could lose a quarter of stored body fat in 12 weeks, Iben is a great weight loss progress! We do not see these results on the scale, because muscle and fluids can increase weight.
Muscle is built to adapt to exercise, because when you do a new movement, pushing muscles beyond normal capacity, they grow to generate more power.
Because the muscles are mainly water, this means more weight gain. This means that, the fat loss diet can show a slight gain in weight due to muscle gains, which in turn can mask fat loss.
Energy is needed to build muscle, it is true!
The best way to achieve faster weight loss is determined by supplying the muscles with enough energy to burn off excess fat by increasing metabolism and growing muscle.
This is by far the best way to lose weight permanently and eventually, because your body needs to consume more energy, which is a good news that will ensure higher metabolism, because you will not need to adhere to a strict diet to maintain a great figure that you’ve always wanted!
