I count on fat percentage more than pounds lost because muscle is heavier than fat. People do lose weight quickly especially at first and the more weight they have to lose the more they shed at the beginning, but this is not a quick crash diet plan, this is teaching you how to live differently with the way you consume food and the best workouts to reach your desired goals. I do not encourage my clients to step on the scale every morning. This will be discouraging and not recommended. I do however encourage my clients to buy themselves a personal Fat Tester and test themselves once a week so we closely monitor your progress and keep your program progressive.
