Ideal Protein Diet - Lean Body Mass and Body Fat Question

01-05-2012, 04:29 PM
Hi. Searched previous threads and was unable to find an answer or description on lean body mass loss as it is related to body fat loss so....

Today at week 5, I am pleased to say that I have lost a total of 23.5lbs! HOWEVER, I asked my coach to re-measure my body fat. The measurements showed that while I lost about 2.5% of body fat from initial measurement, I also lost about 8lbs of what was called "lean mass" from my initial lean mass measurement.:?:

Can someone please explain this to me? I was not completely comfortable with the explanation I received.

Kara; Thanks so much for the answer. I knew that the handheld were not the best guide for measurement but certainly was concerned.

Appreciate the reply!!!!
