Maybe I'm being impatient because it has only been a week, but I'm paranoid about losing muscle because I always felt that I was one of those "skinny fat people" you talk about and I've lost muscle before doing crash diets.
I bought your Burn the Fat, Feed the muscle program and I'm doing it right this time - all by the book.
Generally you shouldn't worry too much about one week's results, even if there's a significant fluctuation (in the wrong direction). First, keep in mind it's unlikely that you will lose a pound in a week and lose 0% fat, and therefore assume you lost 100% muscle. There's margin for error in calipers and your water weight can fluctuate greatly in either direction, masking body composition change.
One of the best new terms I've heard added to the body composition vernacular in recent years comes from Alan Aragon. Given the fact that your bodyweight and your LBM can fluctuate up and down so much in the short term based on inconsequential changes, you should pay much more attention to the trend over time than short term dips or valleys. This of course requires that you use the Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle technique of weekly progress charting (discussed in chapter 4). I am however, very much in favor of gathering weekly feedback and making quick course corrections.
If all signs point toward confirming muscle loss, you might make a program adjustment (nutrition and or training) after just one week even if it's precautionary. While I agree that we shouldn't panic about temporary fluctuations, I disagree with that premise about body comp testing less frequently.
Wouldn't it have been easier to keep a close eye on progress more often and change course before getting too far off track?

You could speed up fat loss with a larger deficit, but you'll want to be sure your weight loss is fat before doing so. On a Fitcast show podcast, he made a distinction between "essential lean body mass" and "nonessential lean body mass." I thought that was a brilliant way to express this difference between muscle tissue and other miscellaneous lean body mass. For example, if your progress chart shows two, three or more weeks in a row with loss of lean body mass you can feel fairly safe in assuming that some of that is loss of muscle and corrective action should be taken. After just one week, you would still be prudent to ask yourself whether you think that measurement and assessment (lost lbm) is correct, based on everything else you see going on - such as how you look in the mirror, your strength level, etc.
I know trainers who insist that weekly body composition testing is too often because body composition doesn't change that much in a week.


I believe in getting frequent feedback and making frequent course corrections when necessary. He checks his instrumentation constantly en route, and though he is actually veering off course all the time, he makes constant course corrections, eventually arriving in LA as if he went in a straight line (in reality he zig-zagged his way there, actually getting where he wanted to go as a result of going off course). I hope you see the obvious relevance of this analogy to your body composition improving endeavors. Tom is a lifetime natural bodybuilder and fat loss expert who achieved an astonishing ripped 3.7% body fat level without drugs or supplements. When you are always going from one diet to another, then achieving long-term results is impossible.
So if you really like a high carbohydrate, high fat diet, then you need to make some changes. So many people are overweight and certainly every person wants to be happy with themselves and feel sexy. If not corrected, the course deviation would continue to widen, and just a few hours later, our pilot may wake up and find himself in Alaska! Make sure your weight training program is properly designed to help you get stronger and you are working on increasing your strength.
Be certain that (a) you are not overtraining in duration or intensity, (b) you are allowing adequate recovery time in between workouts (appropriate frequency of training), and (c) you are allowing appropriate recovery for your body (some people can thrive on higher volume, higher frequency training, others cannot).
Studies on concurrent endurance and strength training show that cardio can interfere with strength at levels of more than 3 days a week especially if all the cardio you do is high in intensity.
It has been shown not only to help improve performance during strength and anaerobic training, but also to help prevent muscle loss.
Diets are temporary solutions and will not help you or anyone else achieve permanent results (how to lose lower belly fat). You should especially avoid refined and processed carbohydrates, that have white flour in them, because white flour will be easily converted into body fat. Once you have become overweight, then it is extremely hard to burn stomach fat and lose the excess fat around the hips (how to lose belly fat in a month). Should I drop my calories further or does it sometimes take more than a week for things to start taking effect? Sure, he could change course in Alaska, but he would have taken a time-consuming and costly detour. Below 100 grams neuroendocrine abnormalities such as decreased thyroid conversion may occur. However some people - women in particular - avoid serious weight training and almost everyone misses workouts or just goes through the motions from time to time. The research also showed neuro-endocrine adaptation to calorie restriction and increased hunger which could indicate likelihood to eat ones way out of calorie deficit.
However, for maximum fat loss, it's beneficial to include frequent cardio, so this is a conflict of opposing goals.


So it is impossible to achieve permanent results in that manner and if you really want to succeed, you need to change your mindset.
The weight you lose with these diets, is not all fat; 40-50% of the weight you lose can come water weight and muscle tissue.
Even the contents of your digestive system will show up as lean body mass in some body composition tests, right? If results aren't forthcoming, you can't afford to not get the most from every workout, let alone miss.
If you're doing body weight exercise or non-progressive types of strength training (if you're bopping around in your living room with a DVD "workout"), it's time to step up your game. If you're getting healthier, leaner, stronger and more muscular consistently, with under 7 hours of sleep, god bless you.
One solution is to keep up the frequent cardio but keep some of it low to moderate in intensity and don't overdo the duration (hours and hours of daily cardio are not needed.
Without making permanent changes to your lifestyle and without replacing bad habits with good habits, it is not possible to burn belly fat permanently. If you want to lose stomach fat quickly, then you really need to lose as many calories as you possible can and the less muscle you have, the less calories you lose.
You should also greatly reduce your sugar intake, because sugar and endomorphs don't go together at all. When you try to find some information online about fat loss, then you get confused very quickly, so in this article I will explain the basics of fat loss. If you're weak as a kitten because you starved yourself on some insane close-to-zero carb diet, that makes muscle-building training awfully difficult. Join a serious gym, or put a power rack down in that dark, dingy basement of yours and start lifting some real iron.
If you're stressed and you know it, escape the source of the stress or develop coping mechanisms fast or your training will be an uphill battle. If you can't lose fat with 45-60 minutes per day, there is something horribly wrong with your nutrition). When you have exercised regularly and followed a new nutrition plan for 1-2 months, then things don't seem so hard and you might even enjoy the new lifestyle. Backing off high volume cardio when fat loss is a primary goal is counter-intuitive, but if there are confirmed losses in LBM, and you've been stressed and overtrained, sometimes it's better to use moderate amounts of cardio and manipulate your nutrition to get the calorie deficit you need.
