Example text

If you have no energy to work out, you’re going to feel lousy and seriously compromise your results. The ability to train hard aerobically and with weights is critical for your long-term success at fat loss. Why dieting can actually make you fatter. Let’s take a look at how these physiological and psychological responses to low calories affect the real world results of a typical dieter. com 28 Suppose our “typical” dieter is a male who weights 200 pounds and has 18% body fat. His goal is to lose 20-25 lbs.

It also says that BMI correlates highly with body composition and is a better indicator of fitness than your weight alone. (It even says you're more likely to die if your BMI is 25 or greater). I'll buy the part about BMI being better indicator of health and fitness than body weight alone, but the part about BMI correlating well to body composition is complete hogwash! Let me show you an example of how BMI falls short as a measure of body composition. In the off-season, I weigh about 201 lbs. and I am 5' 8 inches tall.

Converted to metrics, 201 lbs. 72 meters. So now let's plug my stats into the BMI formula and see what we come up with... 201 lbs. 36 kilos. 86, then I’m a serious health risk and I need to lose some weight. Obviously, that's not the case. ) Body builders and other athletes carry more lean body mass than the average person and will therefore be classified as overweight if BMI is used as the criteria for measurement. Conversely, someone could have a "healthy" BMI of 19 to 22 and yet have a dangerously high level of body fat (a "skinny fat person").
