    Hi, Michelle. I was referring to the number on the scale. The % body fat will be taken care of by his fitness routine, and that will likely improve faster than his total body weight.

    Hi Ossie-Sharon, my husband says he doesn't consider 35% body fat to be very close to an ideal weight, but then he worked mine out and says I am c. 42.5% body fat now (goodness knows what I was a few weeks ago). Thanks for the advice and we are sticking to the eating plan quite well. (I can't call it a diet because we have both had to increase the amount we were eating quite a lot!). We have our grandson staying with us this week, thankfully he loves fruit and vegetables. Unusual for a 5 year old but it should keep him healthy at least. He is eating the same size meals as we are!

    Hi, Michelle, and thanks for the information. He actually needs the amount that you're eating. He is losing more slowly because he is closer to his ideal body weight.

    Age 54, height 5'9", Weight 173lb. However he is a very light frame (as are most distance runners). 10 years ago he was 140lb, and was still 20% body fat at that weight, so he is currently c. 35% body fat.
