The whole business of trying to trim down and lighten your frame can be very frustrating to say the least. I'm not one to recommend that you wholly focus on numbers like weight, body fat and calories in calories out, but having a basic understanding of where you are, the caloric value of food, how much you are burning on a daily basis and what your metabolism responds to can be very helpful in sorting out what the best approach is for you for in getting
stronger and fitter for life.
Your lean mass is all the muscle, fascia, organs, tendons, cartilage, bone and brain in your body.
The "Non Lean Mass" is body fat and water weight. If you retain water during the late phase of your menstrual cycle as most women do, your numbers are going to be off, but it ain't because you miraculously gained 3 pounds overnight, it's because you have extra water in your body.
Apply your composition numbers to this Katch-Mckardle BMR calculator to get an estimate of your Basal Metabolic Rate, the minimum number of calories that you need to breathe.
Find out how many calories you need to adequately fuel your daily activities or your TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditures). Take a look at the bullet points below and estimate your level of daily activity, then multiply your BMR from Step 2 by your activity level factor. Once you have this number, you can put together an informed plan to reach your fitness goals.
