By monitoring the changes of your lean body weight it will provide you with a better indication of whether you are replacing fat with muscle. When your body consists of leaner muscle tissue it increases your metabolism and your body’s ability to lose body fat fast.
We recommend an ideal program to be a combination of adequate exercise and diet. Diet alone is not enough to gain lean muscle tissue – you need to incorporate resistance training exercises.
We are all unique and no ideal body weight exists, it is only the perception of society that has distorted our beliefs as to what is a healthy body image.
We do not recommend the use of scale weights as this
can sometimes be misleading due to the fact that body
composition is different for each individual; frame
size; muscle construction and a number of factors that
can contribute to weight fluctuation. For these
reasons it does not give you a true indication of your
body fat percentage to indicate fat loss has been achieved.

BMI is a guideline to help you decide
your target weight. If you feel you need more
