    lean body mass loss vs keto

    52 yo, 6’00’’, non-insulin dependant type 2 diabetic

    Dropped my bodyweight from 302 to 290 lb in 12 days with ~keto.

    Average intake was:

    2389 kcal
    ~30-35% protein (allways > 1,6 g/kgLBM)
    more than 55% fats; and
    less than 10% total carbs.

    Fasted morning blood sugar decreased, but I´ve got same numbers with a missionary, ‘almost’ non-cheat every sunday IIFYM LFHC.

    My problem: bodyfat raised from 35.4 to 39.7%. These numbers were monitored in a daily basis, so they are consistent (yesterday it was 38.2%). My measurements are done under the same conditions. I use Omron-514c tetrapolar bioimpedance scale.

    This is not a agressive deficit (this same average intake raises my bodyweight in IIFYM LFHC).
    I do practice strength trainning regularly.

    My Question: Do anyone of you guys already experienced this same problem in your first days on keto?

    Don't expect to get meaningful numbers from a BIA machine. They are simply getting confused by changes in hydration.

    Honestly, I would ignore that completely. Just weigh yourself and take measurements around your waist

    There you go - and if you combine that with getting progressively stronger, it's all good.

    Another interesting tip!

    ..."Fat-free mass contains mostly water, while fat contains very little water"...

    but... in keto, mainly on first and second weeks the glycogen depletion discards water, much water.

    So, I guess the equipment 'thought' that the very little water variation was a fat increase.

    tks!
