LOLLL. i guess that's not as funny to you.
when i'm "in shape" it's all cardio. i have a naturally great muscle structure (or rather i used to be super active hockey, running, cardio wise and kinda kept that up over years...and when i lose weight you can see lots of muscle) but it's currently covered by many many layers of fat. i def don't have tons of muscle i've worked years on building.
do you know about what % of each pound i'm losing is muscle? b/c i'm on pace to lose quite a bit of weight and even if like 60% is fat, that's still a LOT of fat loss over 2 weeks. i can already see a change in my body and face so i know at least something is going on that's positive lol. i've lost 8.4 lbs in 7 days as of tonight (1/2 way done w/ the juice fast).
so if 60% is fat that's still 5.04lbs of fat and 3.36lbs of muscle. i ofc just pulled 60% directly out of my ass. do you have a more educated assessment of that %?
i mean what could weight loss be? there's water, fat, muscle, and what else? i guess most of it could be water but i have no idea and i'm drinking lots and lots o' water lol. this just ain't my area of expertise
