    Question Muscle Loss BF%?


    Hey guys, I'm curious if I am calculating this right or not. I believe I have lost around 12 lbs of fat, and 4 lbs of muscle. I used calipers for measurement. Diet stayed semi clean but higher cal. until March 1st (birthday) And have been low carb and cals since(lost 15 lbs from Mar. 1 -23). I am taking Sesamin(4 cap daily), Venom(1 cap Daily, 2 on w/o days), Thyrogen-X (3 caps daily for 12 days, 1 cap since),Retain (1 cap before bed) Camph ( just started 6 caps for last 7 days). I am 6'1, 21 years old. I train 3-4 days per week with a variable custom w/o lasting 2 hours (average). Cardio included post w/o, which lasts 15 min. (2x per week).

    Ahh, I see. Ok Thanks for the reply man. Is this an ideal or ok ratio of (8:3) BF loss:Muscle loss? Or am I losing to much lean tissue?

    Almost 1/4 of the weight that you have lost has been muscle, I would say that't too high. Try to eat more. Your actual weight lost may be less, but you could still lose the same amount of fat.
