End of detox week 1

May 18, 2008 at 11:08 am 1 comment

End of week 1 (actually 2 days pre-detox plus 5 days actual detox, but to be honest, it all seemed pretty intense to me) and here are the results:

Hubby: Down 6.8 lbs and 0.8% body fat
Me: Down 8.2 lbs and up 2% body fat!

WTF!!! I did a bit of research and discovered that your hydration levels are completely incorporated in your lean body mass. So if you’re dehydrated, you have an apparent loss of LBM. As I’ve noted over the last week, I’ve seen a gradual decline in my hydration levels according to my trusty Tanita readings each morning, and I’ve done 2 weights sessions and nearly 2 hours of pilates on the Reformer this week, so I won’t worry too much about catabolising my muscle. I’m more worried that a huge chunk of my 8 pound weight loss is just water. I guess we’ll see in a couple of weeks after we go back to eating regular food. In the meantime, I will make a bigger effort to drink more water throughout the day.

Workout plan for the coming week looks like this:

Sunday 15′ pilates, 25′ Self 08 Challenge month 1 cardio 1
Monday 20′ Latin Rhythm, 20 mins Self 08 Challenge month 1 resistance workout 1
Tuesday 20′ pilates, 25′ S08C cardio workout 2
Wednesday 20′ S08C resistance workout 2, 60′ belly dancing class
Thursday 15′ pilates, 25′ S08C cardio workout 3
Friday 10′ bike, 60′ pilates lesson
Saturday Walk

    Drink more. I found I need a minimum of a gallon a day to stay at a reasonably consistent hydration level on my Tanita. More if I’m exercising hard. And yeah, it seems to make a difference to the body fat readings.

    Right now, I’m retaining water, because of not drinking enough over my weekend and my body fat readings are lower than I’ve ever seen. The hydration level is up higher on my Tanita than normal, and I’m sure it’s because of the water retention. Too many carbs on the weekend = water weight gain.

    Realistically, yeah, probably the largest percentage of your weight loss right now *IS* water… but with luck, a little will also be fat. I should doubt that you’d have gained body fat… unless your calorie level was too high, which would be odd for a detox diet.

    I’ve gained nearly TEN POUNDS in a weekend of eating off plan… but I’m expecting to be able to shed most of it rather quickly over the next few days because I’m sure a lot of it is water. You’ll have a better idea what’s what when you go back to eating regular food.

    Glad the detox is making you feel good though!
