    I've been on Attack 5 days and lost 7lb which is amazing as I've not a great deal to lose. I have a set of Salter MiBody scales which measure water, fat, muscle composition. These are my readings (taken as soon as i wake up in the morning)

    Monday- starting measurements
    32.4 % fat
    49.5% water
    31.9% muscle

    Tuesday
    32.1 % fat
    49.7% water
    32% muscle

    Wednesday
    31.8 % fat
    49.9% water
    32% muscle

    Thursday (no change)
    31.8 % fat
    49.9% water
    32% muscle

    Friday
    31.5 % fat
    50.1% water
    32.1% muscle

    Saturday
    31.3 % fat
    50.3% water
    32.1% muscle

    the trend seems to be fat loss but water gain? I'm confused because Dr Dukan says a lot of starting weight lost will be water but i seem to be gaining it?

    Hubster says it's probably because my body fat is liquifying and is being read as water?
