Is your body weight scale telling you the truth?
Most bathroom scales do a great job of giving your body weight each day.
Most scales are very accurate and precise.
Some of us are obsessed with the number reading from that scale.
Some of us even pray that the number will go down each time we take that reading.
The Reading On Your Scale Cannot Be Trusted…
The reading you get from any scale cannot be trusted when it comes to telling you about your progress from the gym and from your diet.
You can trust your scale to give you the right number but you cannot trust the scale to tell you if you've made progress.
Most people want to change their body composition: this means to lose body fat and build muscle at the same time.
If you can build muscle and burn fat at the same time, your appearance will drastically change very quickly. And that's what most people want.
We're all looking to get healthier, be more fit, get stronger, and look much better. You can accomplish all of that by building muscle and burning body fat at the same time.
The Number On Your Body Weight Scale May Not Change
You could be making absolutely amazing progress by using the WLC System.
But let's say you didn't read the entire manual and you missed the part on measuring your body fat percentage and determining the amount of muscle you gained and the amount of fat you lost.
Since you missed that part of the WLC System Manual, you simply use the number on your bathroom scale to determine your progress.
You have been losing body fat and building muscle for the past week but the number on the scale didn't change because you lost 2 pounds of body fat and gained 2 pounds of lean body mass.
You get frustrated because you've been working so hard and decide to make changes to your program because you didn't see the number on the scale go up or down depending on your goals (yes, some people have goals to make that number go up).
Instead of continuing with your current program, you make drastic changes and lose the perfect path to an amazing body that you were on.
If you would have measured your body fat percentage and combined that with the number on your scale, you would have seen that you made exceptional progress for only one week.
And put together 8 consecutive weeks or more of that type of progress and you will see a totally different and much improved body in the mirror.
Make Sure You Measure Body Fat Percentage
You will learn how to measure body fat percentage with body fat calipers in the WLC System Manual.
Once you have your body fat percentage, you simply multiply that by your body weight to get the amount of body fat you currently have. You can then subtract that body fat from your total body weight to get lean body mass.
If your body fat is going down and your muscle mass is going up, you are making amazing progress.
If you follow the WLC System guidelines, you can easily gain muscle and burn fat at the same time. But remember, the number on the scale may not be changing much but I guarantee your appearance is changing much more.
Your exact body weight reading is not important.
Many people try to reach a specific number on the scale and once they do reach that number they see that they still do not look very good. That's because they focused on reaching a number instead of focusing on improving their appearance.
The number on the scale doesn't directly correlate to looking better.
You may lose 50 pounds of lean body mass along with 20 pounds of body fat and look horrible. You may lose 50 pounds of nasty body fat with no muscle loss and look amazing.
Use the WLC System to Measure Body Fat
Use the WLC System Manual as a guide to measuring your body fat on a weekly basis.
You will take your body fat measurements on a weekly basis on the same time and day under the same conditions.
You will then use those numbers to guide you along your specific program and plan.
It's all laid out for you within the WLC System. Follow the plan and make amazing progress!
