Does anyone have or can think of a good formula to run a fair weight loss competition? My ideas so far and their issues;
Starting fat - current fat = total fat lost
Unfair to those who only want to loose a small amount of fat.
( Starting fat - current fat ) / starting weight = % of fat lost of initial body weight
Problem is the heaviest will always be at the top and the lightest always at the bottom. Those with the most to loose will generally loose more per week.
( Starting fat - current fat ) / starting fat = % of initial fat lost
Gives a fairer calculation however, severely overweight people will always be at the bottom, due to only be able to loose a maximum amount of weight.
