So I was pretty shocked today when my scale arrived. I've been struggling with the last 5-10 pounds. I started Paleo at 145, dropped very quickly to 130, then settled back up to 135. The weight gain was distressing but I tried not to allow myself to get too upset as my clothes still fit well, so I figured it was muscle gain from consistent, but not overtraining.
My scale said 16.5% body fat, 58.7% total body water, 40.9 muscle mass and 5% bone mass. The bone mass number worries me but I have access to DEXA so I'll validate that medically.
So my question is this. At 16.5% body fat, I'm pretty sure I won't be losing any more "weight", right? That is unless I want to be a slave to the gym, which I don't want.
Any comments, feedback about these numbers?
BTW, I'm 100% Paleo except I do allow dairy in the form of greek yogurt 2-3/week, some alcohol (grrrr). I eat lots of good pastured animal fat, so I am proud to say that I am walking proof that fat does not make you fat.
Would love to hear where others are at.
