    In 1998, I went from either 220 or 230 down to 190 in 3 months, doing my version of Atkins and rigorous strength training.

    Omega, there's a couple of different options with varying levels of accuracy. Electrical impedance is most common, water weighing or the BodPod displacement method are also accurate, but more expensive. Calipers can be accurate if done right.

    The most accurate one is some kind of body scan. I think it was like DOXA scan or something. Can't remember. It was like an x-ray for body fat.

    I lost an incredible 9 pounds in a week, with 6 of them being the water weight the night before weigh in. In ya face, suckahs~

    MEGA JESUS-SAN - Consider %'s of weight drop instead of actual poundage.

    Okay don't be nice:

    I call bullshit. I hear this crap all the time where people say they lost this much body fat. There's only one way to measure body fat and that's a full comprehensive test. That test cost on the average of $68 american. So please leave the body fat percentage crap out of this thread.
    My apologies, I realise I forgot to add a disclaimer that the BF%'s are visual estimates. :violent1:
    Basically, I went from seeing only a little bit of definition on my abs to seeing them nice and defined. And sexy. Hmmm, anything else to add? Yeah, don't be nice to me, I couldn't care less.

    Assuming the lower scale of BF% difference, is 3% that much?

    Wow, you threw numbers in there based on you staring at yourself in the mirror?

    In the law, we would say he "eyeballed" it.

    You can't say "****" in court without risking being found in contempt.

    But yeah, essentially the same thing.
