So yesterday I went for a body-stat assessment. I last went in March 2013, can you believe it? Three years ago!
I was pretty nervous because I thought for sure I would have a much higher body-fat percentage now than then...but to my surprise and delight, my body-fat percentage was the same. A lean 15.1%! This surprised me because three years ago, I was competing in bikini competitions and really training hard. Back then I expected my body fat to be low.
This is NOT what I expected this time round. I am eating totally different. I am only just starting to get back into gym training. I am eating FAT, people!!!! I guess, somewhere in the back of my mind, even though I now "know" intellectually that fat doesn't make you fat, I was wondering if, really, it did. Maybe eating fat was making me a thin-fat person?
Not according to these stats. I weighed just over a kg more (good! I was too light last time) and yet, I haven't gained body fat. So according to the dietician, I have picked up LEAN body mass. This is what we are all striving for.

Lean Gains whilst eating LCHF.
I am a mother and freelance as an illustrator (artist). I love writing and have published a few things too. I am also obsessed with health and fitness and would describe myself as a bit of a philosopher.
