17 Day Diet Targets

Short of requesting a complete list of the client’s meals and their ingredients, (which I think may be overbearing, and possibly counterproductive because you get them stuck into a rigid meal planning mindset from the start) there is no real way to check for this, you just have to be aware of it. So, if someone isn’t losing weight as it seems they should for the macros you’ve given them, miscounting may be a factor.
It’s not just about length of sleep, but quality of sleep. Does the client have a good mattress, a good pillow? Is the room too hot or cold? Is the room dark? Make sure that people get these basics sorted – they may sound obvious now but they aren’t always obvious to the client. → It is a good idea to track qualitative measures of sleep quality and overall stress each week also . 4. Why A Sudden Whoosh In Weight Loss Is Not Something To Worry About It’ll be water. Either due to a sudden decrease in carbohydrate intake, salt intake, or is just a whoosh of water that has been building up in the fat cells and waiting to come out. → It is best to look at the trends in measurement and weight data over multiple weeks, and ignore any big fluctuations that can happen week to week. Summary Recommendations We need to track progress based on more than just the scale weight. It is best to take body measurements, as well as track sleep and stress levels each week as the diet progresses, due to their ability to affect water retention. It should be expected that there will be stalls in progress, and we mustn’t panic when these things happen but embrace them as part of the process. Hopefully you will have already read the next section on how to track your progress from the site. I’m betting that it will make a lot more sense now. Here’s a heavily updated version.

How This Affects Our Targets 
It’s very hard to distinguish between fat loss and muscle gain – we aren’t able to trust body-fat percentage measurement devices, and so we only have our weight and stomach measurement changes to give us clues about how fat loss is progressing. So, instead of setting fat-loss guidelines, it’s more practical, accurate and meaningful to set weight-loss guidelines that are slightly lower than any maximal fat-loss rate as this will take into account the potential for muscle growth. Weight-loss Guidelines There are two ways of setting weight loss targets. The first is fixing a scale weight value to lose each week on average, based on your body- fat percentage. This is the method I have used up until this point with clients and is shown in the table below. Targeting A Specific Scale Weight Change Per Week Body fat % Target weight loss per week 30%> ~2-2.5 lbs / 0.9-1.1 kg 20-30% ~1.5-2 lbs / 0.7-0.9 kg 15-20% 1-1.5 lbs / 0.45-0.7 kg 12-15% 0.75-1.25 lbs / 0.3.
