On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m comparing a weight scale vs body fat scale and sharing which is better for body recomposition.
In addition to this, I’m also discussing why standard weight loss advice is so bad.
Let’s jump right into today’s topic.
Now I’m not saying you’re at fault for this.
It’s the years of bad weight loss advice being thrown at you by “certain organizations”, i.e. the government.
The reason this is wrong is because losing weight should not be your goal.
Your goal should be losing body fat.
Your body weight is comprised of:
Muscle is the metabolic driver of your youth and metabolism, and is an overall key indicator of strength and health.
The best weight loss advice is to focus on body recomposition.

To keep your body fat percentage measurements as consistent as possible, I recommend you:
Remember, using a body fat scale to measure your body fat percentage is just meant to be a baseline.
Don’t overanalyze it.
Check your body fat percentage just once a week, and continue following the Live Lean principles that I share with you every week on the blog.

That’s it Live Lean Nation.
