What else do we lose?

Kate

CDC/PT/PITA
Around 25% of your loss is muscle (your body gains muscle as you gain fat in order to carry the extra weight around, so there is excess muscle there to be lost when you lose fat). This might sound like a lot but don't worry - a smaller percentage of your losses are lean mass on a VLCD than on most diets.

What's the percentage of healthy body fat ratio Kate? I seem to remember of figure of 22% ... is that right?
 

Kate

For a woman, the recommendation is around 20-25%. If you're very active, it's more like 15-20%.

Actually I should add that 25-30% is still "acceptable" - 20-25 is "healthy".
