Here are my stats as of today, July 13, 2018:
Basic Body Composition with Muscle-Fat and Obesity Analysis
Weight: 396 lbs
Percent Body Fat (PBF)" 48.2%
Total Body Water: 151.2 lbs
Skeletal Muscle Mass (SMM): 117.3 lbs
Dry Lean Mass: 54.2 lbs
Body Fat Mass: 191.2 lbs
Lean Body Mass 205.5
Body Mass Index (BMI) 52.3
Percent Body Fat: 48.2%
As for calorie intake, the analysis recommends that I eat 3100 calories per day in order to lose weight. My Basal Metabolic Rate (the rate at which my body burns calories while at rest) is 2383 calories. My Base calorie intake would then be 3600 calories per day. The recommendation is to have a 500-calorie deficit per day, which is how the recommended calorie intake was figured.
This being said, I'm not comfortable eating so many calories per day, as I worry it will delay weight loss. So I am going to aim for about 2500 calories per day with a 300-calorie increase on days I do a complete workout at the gym.
In order to achieve this goal, I'm also going to increase the amount of green vegetables, eat a healthy balance of complex carbohydrates, especially prior to a workout, and focus on eating more lean proteins while limiting my intake of high fat proteins.
Overall, I had a great first visit at 5 Star Nutrition at Stonefield Commons in Charlottesville. I'll post more about my progress as I get into my new routines. I will be doing a follow up analysis at 5 Star Nutrition in two weeks. Check back in with me then!
