    5.5 pounds lost = 1 inch waist reduction

    Hi,

    I have observed and analysed a pattern in number of weight loss results. For every 5.5 pounds (2.5 Kg) lost, there is a reduction of 1 inch on the waist.

    What you guys think about the above pattern? Can any one tell their stats-

    1) Weight and waist size before cutting

    2) Weight and waist size right now.

    It all depends on how much fat you lose. If you lose 5lbs of muscle you're in bad shape.

    But 5.5lbs seems pretty close to correct. At 300lbs my waist was 53"........ at 289lbs it is 51" and at 190lbs (assuming I am 8-10% body fat) I assume it will be around 33".

    5.5 x 20 (inches lost) = 110lbs lost

    300lbs - 110lbs = 190lbs.

    But you can't really put a # on it. But let's put it this way, if you lose 10lbs overall and your waist hasn't gone down by at least 1.5 inches, then you are probably losing more muscle than you sshould be
    Can I go from 354lbs to 299lbs in 10 weeks? I am going to try or die trying!

    May 28 = 353.8 LBS / 35.5% BF
    June 4 = ????
    June 11 = ????
    June 18 = ????
    June 25 = ????
    July 2 = ????

    It's been 6 lbs per inch for me. About a month after I first started, I measured at 295 lbs and 50.5 inches. Last week I was 232 lbs at 40 inches.

    But I agree with skuzzitude mostly...there's no definite number for everyone to go by. Just look at the trend and make sure it's consistent over time while paying attention to your lifts (making sure those aren't decreasing).

    I'ts hard to tell. If you're holding water you could lose inches anywhere...
    My arms got quite a bit smaller after I cut for the first time

    My waist and hips have gotten smaller since I started cutting so it's not presice to say that if you lose 5 lb that you'll lose an inch on the waist

    Interesting observation

    I went from 187 lbs & 41.25" to 163 & 34.75". Guess that averages out to about 4 lbs per inch...
    But I have noticed a few things:
    1) diminishing returns on waist size reduction as you continue to decrease weight - i.e., the first 5 lbs might have seen a 1.25" reduction, whereas the next 5 lbs only a 1" reduction, and the last 5 lbs maybe a half inch loss
    2) Think there's a point where you stop to lose waist size much if at all...

    I would assume that the inches/lbs ratio is different for everyone...
    Neat thread, never really thought to compare, but I might just track this more closely for curiosity sake in the future.

    The ratio cant be accurate for all body types. everyone's body is differently proportioned. when i was 310 my waist was 46, now im a lil under 210 and its 36. i'd be a 27 waist according to your theory.
    Train hard, eat often, and sleep well.

    About 4lbs per inch on average for me (on this cut). I've lost 4 1/2" and about 17lbs since December.

    Before getting my diet, calories and cardio in check it was closer to 6lbs. per inch...

    Try to go slow with it and see if your ratio gets better...mine did
    Goal = 180+ @ 33.00" Across Navel

    This seems quite interesting. I'll start taking some more regular measurements to see how I'm comparing on this.

    This is very true....it's much more dependent on BF%. So when you start with a high Body Fat %, reduction in waist size is faster, but as you move more closer to your goal, BF% reduce and waist size doesn't reduce with the same pace. With a little maths in mind, we can create a range and analogy of waist eduction with weight reduction....but again it will be different for everyone as everyone will have a different Body structure and the way body respond could vary.

    Again nice post anyways.

    It is somewhat genetic in terms of fat loss and some women don't hold as much fat in the midsection but have quite a bit in the hips and glutes. For most guys it seems like the waist fat's the first thing to come on board and the last thing to leave when dieting. I think your estimate may be pretty good for higher body fat percentages but once you're reasonably lean it'll taper off to next to no inches lost per 5 lbs.
    "I was laying in bed one night and I thought ‘I’ll just quit — to hell with it.’ And another little voice inside me said ‘Don’t quit — save that tiny little ember of spark.’ And never give them that spark because as long as you have that spark, you can start the greatest fire again.”

    The ratio of lbs/inch varies. At the end you will probably end up with a 28-32" waist. I am 35" (most of my fat is there) and would be happy to get to <32".

    I'm 220ish pounds and at 34 comfortably. Around 20% bf, maybe 18 - 20.

    Heaviest I was maybe 230? And I was probably 38 max. I've done a recomp unintentionally. I was planning on cutting but hard to keep diet on track so end results were a recomp which I'm happy with, but still no where near where I want to.

    What you guys think about the above pattern? Can any one tell their stats-

    1) Weight and waist size before cutting

    2) Weight and waist size right now.
    I would say thats about right. Ive gone from 223.5 to 191 in 13 weeks. And my waist has gone from 43.5 to 37.25 over the same period.

    No real measurement like this applies. It is genetically determined (the pelvic bone). Once you are lean and down to low bf like 15%ish, that's your waist for life. Also, the fat distribution and your starting bf% and weight plays a role in inches/lb lost. Obviously this will also differ at different points.

    I was a 42" at 225, now I am a 34" at 160. I will probably be a 33ish by the time I am 145-150 10-12% at the end of my goal. Yes it is terrible on an ectomorph with average or or below shoulders. If your waist is above what you want it to be after cutting, only way to remedy it is building the upper body.

    Just focus on losing fat weight overall and don't get your hopes invested into "I'm gonna lose x" after x lbs", this stuff is impossible to predict unless you knew exactly what you were in the past.

    Seems about right, 12 lbs is supposed to be a pant size. But you can drop pant sizes without changing your weight too.

    i lose about 1" per 6lbs so that number sounds about right.
