I wonder if a CDC could help . . .

Hi all, I have been on cambridge for ten days now. I have professional body fat scales and I measured before I started. I am 9 lbs down today but my body fat is still the same. How can this be? surely a small decrease should show by now.
Could a CDC please help with a possible explanation :confused:

Sorry I am not a CDC, but the reason your body fat does not show it going down is because you have to burn off your store of glycogen before your body starts burning fat... I also have scales like that and I have lost 4 stone and they dont show a massive drop on mine, I was talking to the guy at the gym today as he did my body fat there, and he said you have to pay a lot of money to get an accurate body fat measurement, he has scales that cost £700 and they still aren't good enough, the others like we obviously have and zap you through the feet can only really read the bottom half of you and guess the rest.... well that is what he said to me today anyway.
Thanks Greeneyes, that sounds like a fair explanation! I dont think I will measure it for at least another 6 months. Does your instructor know you are on CD? most of the ones I know frown on the diet.
Yes he does know I am on CD and there is a CDC who goes to my gym (not mine) and so they have dealt with people on this diet before... I am moving up the plans now and am on 1000 calories, I didn't start at the gym before I reached this amount of calories as they say you dont eat enough calories before this to sustain exercise aswell... (well this is what this trainer guy said today...) obviously as I move up the plans he will plan in more exercise for me.
