Weight loss is one of the hottest topics ever. Everyone seems to be trying to lose weight nowadays. But what's the difference between weight loss & fat loss? People seem to use both terms interchangeably.
We at Fitness Holistic will make you understand the difference between weight loss & fat loss, but also which one you should aim for and how.
Weight Loss vs. Fat Loss. What's the difference? Let's start by defining weight loss & fat loss so you know what I mean here.
- Weight Loss. You want to lower your body-weight, the sum weight of your bones, muscles, organs, body fat, ...
- Fat Loss. You want to lower your body fat, the amount of fat your body carries. Healthy goals are 10% body fat for men and 15% for women.
Problems with Weight Loss. If you want to lose weight, it's most likely because you carry too much fat. There are people who must lose weight, like athletes before a competition, but most want fat loss. So stop weighing yourself.
- Unreliable. Your body-weight can fluctuate daily since it's influenced by your stomach/bowel/bladder content, water loss/retention, muscle loss/gain, fat loss/gain, ... You'll have no idea what's going on.
- Irrelevant. 2 people with similar height can weigh the same, but look completely different because one has lower body fat than the the other. Check the picture at the top for an example.
The last point shows why the BMI standard is flawed. Here at Fitness Holistic we never use the BMI but we measure your progress by how much fat you lose.
Weighing Scales will mislead you. Clothes, mirrors & pictures don't lie. Neither do fat calipers. But the weight scale can become your worst enemy by misleading you and killing your motivation.
