Weight loss and fat loss are not the same thing. Losing weight can mean losing muscle, water, or fat, while losing fat means specifically losing body fat. It's important to differentiate between the two because losing muscle or water can be detrimental to your health and fitness goals. Some clients may be fixated on losing weight on the scale, but it's important to educate them on the importance of losing body fat instead. Plateaus in weight loss and fat loss are normal, but it's important to make sure it's a real plateau and not just an expected pause in progress. Making extreme adjustments can push you into a permanent plateau and be damaging to your health and fitness goals.
