Penny Ragusano, NASM Elite Trainer, Fitness, answeredDo you notice a change in your body composition? Are your clothes fitting differently? Sometimes when we begin eating right and exercising, we notice changes in our body composition and not the scale. This is a good reason we should not rely on the scale alone to track our progress.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
Janelle Gallo - NASM Elite Trainer, NASM Elite Trainer, Fitness, answeredYou can't go by the scale to use as a tool whether or not you are losing weight. If you are in any strength program and are eating right, quite often we see individuals gaining lean body mass (muscle). This shows in the clothes fitting loosely. Therefore, you should track your bodyfat percentage to see whether or not you are losing. The worse way to lose weight is to lose muscle. A drop in bodyfat should be the goal in losing.Helpful? 2 people found this helpful.
