    The part that threw me for a loop was her insistence that she lost 20% body fat (She mentions it in the post) in two months. She now insists she has 20% body fat and that she’s overweight. Everything I’ve read on body fat and body composition suggests 20% is on the low end of the fitness spectrum for women and borderline athletic.

    She also states she was 40% a few months ago and is 20% now. My back of the envelope calculations suggest (168 with 40% = 100 pounds of lean mass, 148 with 20% = 118 pounds of lean mass) that she’s done the impossible. Not only has she lost a net 20 pounds she gained 18 pounds of muscle. (Or the bio-metrics she’s tracking are off)

    I do not dismiss the possibility that she keeps it off but the route she is taking is the typical extreme crash diet. She also seems to ignore the fact that the body defends body fat levels and that feeling starved amongst overweight people is perfectly normal.
