I’m a 64 year old male , 182cm and 99 kgs. I’m on a VLCD ( this is my second week) and I’ve lost 5kgs. The reason o am on this diet is that my blood pressure was raised slightly and obviously losing weight is going to help.
I feel quite confident in this diet and I am thinking how low should I go.
As per BMI I should be looking at being perhaps 80 kgs. I’ve also tried to calculate the loss by measuring my waist. I have the usual old man belly and that calculation isn’t far from the BMI result perhaps 82kgs.
So far so good! I do like to plan and I am wondering on the impact of heavily muscled legs might have on the amount of weight I need to lose? My legs ( an inherited gift) are that of a body builder!
So I ask is there a potential “offset” in the weight I may need to lose?
