My weight has started to come down again after going off track for a while. I've started on a Ketogenic diet recently and stopped taking the Crestor as it was interfering with my short term memory. The Ketogenic diet relies on calories from fats rather than carbohydrates and can boost HDL levels and increase the particle size of the LDL cholesterol. I think that my weight problem is mostly involved with not reducing the portion sizes to give the right number of calories (ca 1200 / day) which will allow my weight to reduce. My daughter warned that it might lead to muscle loss but I've not noticed any significant change from my scale which measures body fat, muscle, water and bone.
Before Operation (June 3 2013) : Weight = 74.5kg. Fat = 34.5 % Muscle = 34.5% ( 25.70 kg)
Today (08/03/14 : Weight = 65.0kg. Fat = 27.8 % Muscle = 37.2% ( 24.18 kg)
Thus muscle only contributed 500gms to a weight loss of 10.5 kg this is probably due to the accuracy of the scales in measuring fat / muscle content I've noticed that different scales calculate different values. It could also be due to reduced fat / glycogen and water in the muscle its self due to the Ketogenic diet.
