you loose all your water and fat stores in the first week, that is why.. it is mainly water loss.

There is a big diff.
The fact that I didn't lose fat, means that I only lost either fluid or lean tissue (=muscles).
But since i'm in week 1 I think I only lost water!

The trouble with these fat monitors, is that they are often no terribly accurate.

They give an idea of fat, but not within 100%.

During the first week, you probably will lose some fat, though the majority of the loss will be water/glycogen (or just water for those doing more traditional diets such as WW and SW.

When we diet, after the first couple of weeks all dieters lose fat and lean mass (yes...muscle :()

How much lean mass depends on a few factors, including how much fat you have to lose. The skinnier you get, the more chance that you lose more lean.

With diets such as Cambridge, the loss of lean mass is minimized owing to the higher protein levels and because we go into ketosis :clap:

Ketosis is fat burning once the glycogen stores have been used :)

Hi there, I was also concerned about fat % loss rather than lean muscle (since muscles burn calories and fat just sits there looking fat) I have scales at home and they have today (day 6 for me) shown a reduction in my fat % so I am sure when you weigh next week you will see that reduction you want. Do you do weight training or yoga as that can help to protect your muscle mass.

Well done on your WL so far

I agree it probably is water loss as this happens on any diet like ww for example but if you keep going the fat percentage will come down also. Keep with it you have done well so far. xx
