So, if I was going to do things right, then I should have a weight in.
If I am committed to improving my health and well being I should take the whole process seriously.
I did not want this to be a short lived fad soon to be given up like previous attempts.
I did something we all do when we get an idea ……..fired up Amazon to have a look at scales for weighing myself. I settled on a set of digital body fat monitor scales that had pretty good reviews and you could track progress in an app on your phone. Perfect!
The scales I purchased are the: Renpho Bodyweight Digital Scales
Then I did my starting weigh in and the results shocked me!
Keto diet starting point
I’ll run through the key starting stats in order from top to bottom. Needless to say, where the result is highlighted in red, that’s not good!
Now I hadn’t weighed myself for a long time. Purely because I didn’t want to know. 17st 13lb (108kg). This is pretty bad. The recommended weight for my height 6ft 1 (185cm) is 11.8st-14.4st (166-202lb).
So I was quite a lot overweight.
BMI was 33.3. Recommended BMI is 18-24 so pretty much I was classed as being obese.
My level was 29.9. Recommended level of subcutaneous fat is 8-25% to be healthy.
My level was 16%. Recommended level of visceral fat is 1-12% to be healthy.
My body health age was 54. On the day of this first weigh in I was 47! So my body health age is 7 years older!.
