One Year on the scale (Sept 2017)

I found my scale numbers from a year ago. This was about 10 weeks after I started Keto so it doesn’t show my full weight drop. But it does show some great trends.

Date Weight BMI Body Fat % Total Body Water % Muscle Mass % Body Fat lbs Body Water lbs Muscle Lbs
2016-10-11 248.2 34.0 40.3 28.0 21.1 100.0 69.5 52.4
2017-09-29 197.2 27.0 30.9 38.0 28.4 60.9 74.9 56.0
Difference -51.0 -7.0 -9.4 10.0 7.3 -39.1 5.4 3.6

Weight is down 51 lbs. That’s a lb a week. A decent number.

Body fat dropped by almost 40 lbs of the 51 lbs lost. That’s a great result.

Water lbs is up! That’s really good and signals a recomposition.

Equally important is that my muscle lbs has gone from 53 to 56 lbs. Not huge but definitely my muscle mass has not suffered from a year of keto and fasting.
