Fat loss vs Weight loss


Another exciting Friday night hitting the books for the ISSA certified fitness trainer course.

Tonight's topic was body fat assessments and lean body mass vs fat mass. 

So many people still use the nonsense of the scale to determine progress. 

People lose 10lbs and high five themselves when most if not all of the 10lbs came from lean body mass. All the fat is still there usually. 

That's why I have always taught fat loss vs weight loss. Losing 10lbs is not an achievement. Losing 10% of body fat is a huge achievement- big difference. 

My quest to educate the people on health & fitness continues.
