    What Percentage of Weight Lost Should be Muscle?

    Hey, yall,
    Over the last ten months or so, I have lost about sixty pounds. I haven't followed a specific diet or exercise plan, I just try to eat healthily and get about 2000 calories a day, while trying to burn as many as I can from exercises like jogging, playing golf, weight training, or really any other physical activity. What concerns me about this weight loss is that my scale tells me that within the last 35 pounds I have lost, about 13 of those pounds have been muscle (I have an excel spreadsheet with the more recent data, I will try to link it). Anyway, is this normal? if not, what can I do to maintain my weight while putting back on the muscle I've lost?

    Thanks for the read!

    Firstly, those scales are terribly inaccurate so I wouldn't pay too much attention to the numbers.
    Best you can do is follow a proper weight training program, get adequate amounts of protein (0.7g/lb minimum) and don't cut weight too quickly( aim for ~0.5-1lb/week). What's your current weight goal and current weight?

    Those scales re not accurate. HOWEVER, if you are only occasionally, passively lifting weights, you may have lost a good bit of muscle... contributed to by insufficient amounts of protein.

    If you do what's suggested above, you might get away with no muscle loss. Certainly no strength loss is always possible with good training - but that doesn't always mean no tissue was lost, it's a good sign though.
