Why stomach flu makes me laugh
Saturday, March 01, 2014
Thursday and Friday this week I was dealing with a nasty stomach bug and a decided lack of desire to eat. On the upside, I lost three pounds.
What made me laugh is how it affected my other numbers: a supposed 6% (or about 20#) body fat gain and a supposed 20# loss of lean mass, two feats I would deem humanly impossible in the course of a single week. I'm not sure how those numbers came up since there was only a small (expected) downward tick in my hydration numbers, but I was very amused.
Just goes to show that no matter how fancy the equipment is, it can be unreliable if you're expecting it to tell you the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
