  • Hi I’ve been doing TheFast Diet for 5 weeks now I’ve lost around 7lb which I’m happy with as my target is a stone, however my fat percentage is not really changing – maybe gone down 1/2 percent but nothing more, any ideas, tips,possible reasons. I’m 9 stone and 5ft 2

     

    How are you measuring it ?

    It’s very unlikely that you have lost weight at the same % far as your total, which is what the above suggests. So I would be suspicous of the measurement.

    Typically weight loss is at least 70% fat so your body % fat should decline with weight loss.

    I have body fat measurement scales at home (Tanita). Start weight was 9st 7lb, body fat 33%, current weight 8st 13lb, body fat 32%.
