That’s my problem w/ The Biggest Loser contests is that they only talk of weight loss and use scale weight. We’re talking fat baby!!

Fat Loss – most definately!
Most people (women) don’t understand weight loss unless you explain it. The easiest way I’ve found to do that is to explain that we can lose muscle, bone, and water when lose “weight”, if not done properly. I say, “What you call weight loss could also be classified as osteoperosis and dehydration!” – then I show them their body fat % – and how fat loss is more important…and why.
I’m currently training a client who is a “skinny fat”…and explaining fat loss vs weight loss helped her understand why she needed a fitness plan – not another “diet”.
