I have an interesting issue regarding my scale reporting my % body fat is increasing, while my weight is stable.
I have been “doing Keto” for about 8 months and have been maintaining an intake of 50 carbs or less. I am a 6’2" male 50 y.o. that started at about 224 lbs 27% bf, and got down to about 195 lbs with 21% bf. but for the last several several months my % body fat has crept back up to 24%, but the scale still say 197 lbs. (I have an Aria Scale that tracks this - not sure how accurate it is, but it’s the same scale I started with).
I have not been as active lately, and tried to reduce my %fat intake, but was wondering if this common or if there are things that I should be doing to get this back down? I have never fasted (never real felt the need to) but I feel that %body fat should be fairly stable if my weight is stable - so this makes me think I am gaining fat and losing (muscle? brains? )
Just wondering if anyone else has seen this? - I will be getting the blood work done here shortly and I am interested in seeing the numbers.
