trying to connect with other over 50 males (or females. The 3 site test tells me I am at about 16% bf. I am 52 years old). I am curious about actual fat loss. The average when all is done well is weight loss of about .5 of a kilo a week. Just to round up the number let us say 1 kilo for every 2 weeks.
Now let's say I have lost 1 kilo in 2 weeks, with a moderate calorie deficit, 3-4 times a week of cardio and weight training 5 days a week.
What would the realistic percentages be, how much is water, how much is glycogen and how much is actual body fat?
Have googled it, but can't find any info, so anyone on here have any idea?
I also found that to 16% for a 52 year old equals about 13% for a 25 year old male, which is reassuring for me. Not hung up on numbers but explains why I look how I do when I work so hard!
