I was under the impression that fat loss leads to weight loss or vice versa but it seems both are different. Can anyone explain the difference??
and I want to get any advise/tips for fat/weight loss… thank you

    They recommend the BMI or Body Mass Index.

    It is a simple calculation based on height and weight. Once you have your BMI you can then see what category you fit into:
    Underweight, Normal weight, Overweight, or Obesity.
    That is the standard, so if for example your calculation is 30, you are overweight. However if your calculation is 24, you are normal weight.
    Then it is a matter of looking at your ‘figure’ and deciding if perhaps the fat distribution is correct? For example if you are normal weight but you have a large belly that you wish to get rid of. Or perhaps your ass is too big. You can then shift the fat, by exercise, toning up of those specific areas.
    A word of warning, us Humans are animals and we will find that the Seasons will have a serious influence on our body weight. I think the Cave Man gene tells us to put weight on to get us over the cold winter and then take it off for the hot summer.

    Weight loss could be fat loss + muscle loss + water loss. This sets you up for rebound weight gain. the water loss will come back. The loss muscle will be replaced with fat when the weight comes back. Weight loss alone that is not ALL fat loss is not sustainable. Weight loss can be achieved via dieting but fat loss can only be achieved via a sensible diet and exercise. Fat loss is sustainable on the long term as you will most likely build on your muscle reserves while you lose fat. Fat loss is correct weight loss.
