    Dexascan, Caliper, and electrical impulse body fat tests.

    Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone else has tried a dexascan? I did yesterday and the read out/break down was really interesting but it clocked me at 33% BF, the day before I did calipers which had me at 21% and the hand held electrical impulse had me at 23%. Well I saw that 33 and was crushed, I knew I was over weight but that kicked my ass.

    I've been doing Keto for 2 months but I dont seem to be losing fat first time I went Keto, I'm doing Hiit workouts,bjj, kettle bells and boxing...but I was thinking of dumping this to go back to more Olympic lifts, squat, snatch, clean and jerk, high weight with lower reps... I will post some pictures, if you agree that visual I'm at 33% then tell a chubby guy how it is ha ha, I appreciate any and all suggestions for lifestyle eating habits (biggest goal is now proper nutrition)and training.
    Stats
    5"7 and 1/2... cant leave the half out
    35 years old
    Weight 220
    Exercise 5 times a week, a day of hitting pads and a day of BJJ sparring
    The cowboy hat was a while back but it's about the best I've been and was at 180, I was thinking 15% BF but would like to hear ideas. Physically I would like to get back there but with more mass

    First off, i say screw the calipers, dexascan, etc. Use the mirror. That is what counts.
    I am going to keep it simple... Calculate your TDEE ( there are calculators online). Drop 200-500 calories and use that as your daily caloric intake. Try having your macros 48p/38c/12f. Eat every three hours.
    It may take a couple of days to start seeing results.
    I would add cardio to make any adjustments to weight loss. If you really want to be agrressive, ad cardio 2 x day.

    Awesome, thanks for the advice man! That does seem the best way to look at it. Literally in the mirror

    This is great article about body fat/composition testing and why the mirror really is best (if you can be objective). Also consider taking regular progress pics to compare and measure change over time

    Best wishes!
