is it possible to lose fat without losing pounds? i think the answer is yes but i was wondering what everyone else though. in the last two weeks my stomach is looking/feeling leaner but the scale has not gone down. i haven’t been able to up my exercise much. but i have reduced the fat in my diet.
Absolutely! I bought a new scale 5 months ago and when I measured my body fat it was 24. I was a little disappointed as I am a runner. Five months on raw food and I am down to 15% body fat. My weight has changed by only 7 lbs or so.
I am not sure how it works, but my scale takes into account my height, weight, age, whether I am an athlete or normal person, and your feet are supposed to be damp on the sensors. Sounds crazy, but I hope it is accurate.
Those scales use electrical impedance I think. There are also formulas you can use that require you to take some measurements, plug in the numbers, do the math and voila! a pretty accurate body fat percentage.
