Kenny, I'm not sure if the PT who took the skinfold test was trained properly then because he didn't use a tape measure.


GTJL,

The Personal Trainer did NOT know what he was doing.

The bioimpedance is probably inaccurate, but I keep it as a reference point to see if I'm losing fat vs muscle mass.


I understand. Just remember this is a protocol with the bioelectrical impedance machines. Usually, for the best reading you:

1) Need to be well hydrated. That means taking your measurement later in the day will provide you with your best body fat percentage reading since you will be better hydrated.

2) No exercise a few hours before taking the reading.

3) No food intake a few hours before taking the reading.

4) No shower/bath a few hours before taking the reading.

10% bodyfat is just a personal preference. I prefer being leaner but I do not really want to lose mass. Is there any way I can maintain my weight while reducing bodyfat? Will one of these anabolic/paleo diets help?


You going to lose some muscle mass with any diet. The question is, "How much"?

I've noticed I can continue making strength gains while dieting and losing about 0.5 to 1 lb a week.


At some point in the weight loss/body fat loss proces, you'll lose some strength.

I'm having around 250g of protein a day to preserve muscle mass while in caloric defecit.


Sounds good to me.

If I'm losing some muscle, my CNS is still improving because I've only been lifting heavy weights for about 2 years with some periods of inconsistency.

That may be but at some point losing muscle mass is going to impact how much you lift.

Neat. So if you're trying to lose body fat why keep your carbs so high?


100g of carbs is low.. borderline keto diet, really. Especially doing heavy weight training and HIIT training, he's going to be carb depleted in a matter of days.
