Body recomposition isn't about weight loss; it's about fat loss. Because muscle is denser than fat, you may maintain your current weight or even gain weight on a body recomposition plan.
Weight loss isn't the primary goal with body composition, so you can ditch the scale because it doesn't differentiate between fat loss and muscle loss.
Focus on two main factors:
People know that they want less fat and more muscle, but they often don't know what it takes to get there.
Body recomposition is the act of altering your physique by burning fat and gaining muscle at the same time. It needs a different approach to health and fitness than the typical weight-loss mindset. By keeping a close eye on when you eat what and your training, you can lose fat and gain muscle at the same time.
Body recomposition comes down to your specific health and fitness goals.
Basic guidelines to successfully change your body composition:
Your body composition is the ratio of fat mass to lean mass in your body.
Lean mass includes muscle, bones, ligaments, tendons, organs, other tissues and water. Everything else is fat mass. You may define water as its own percentage depending on the method you use to measure it.
Body composition is changing the ratio of fat mass to lean mass. The goal is to lose fat and gain muscle simultaneously instead of the traditional approach of putting on weight first and then losing the fat to reveal the muscle underneath.
Fat loss is about your calorie maintenance. To lose fat, you must eat fewer calories than you burn. The best technique for fat loss is cardiovascular exercise or combined cardio and resistance exercise and a healthy diet.
A sustainable way to lose fat is to have realistic goals and not deprive your body of its nutrients.
Figure out your maintenance calories - how many calories you burn on a day you don't exercise. Use a certified personal trainer, dietitian or an online calorie calculator.
