    How fast will my BF increase in ONE week...

    OK, I'm getting weighed in at work tomorrow, and if I show anything more than a reasonable gain in BF, I lose 500 bucks.

    My question is how fast will I lose it.

    Last 12 weeks I have Lifted/Ran/Swam, etc. Also, my diet was very very strict. I gained a good amount of muscle and shedded fat away. 15% BF to 9.2% BF.

    This week my diet was still strict, however, my excersize has gone down this week. I didnt play frisbee this week, ran twice rather than 4 times, and lifted just once.

    In short:
    12 weeks ago: 15% BF
    hardcore working out/diet
    Last Thursday: 9.2% BF
    Since then, much less excersize, but hard diet (...except saturday :P).

    Can you guys give me a decent prediction of what my body fat will be at this week?

    If I am over 12% I lose.

    Well, forget your body fat... what's your weight?

    If you were 200 then 1% bf is equal to 2 lb. So in order to have gained 3% body fat in less than a week you would have needed to gain 6 pounds of pure fat.

    If you were 100 lb then it 'only' would have taken 3 pounds of fat.

    Intriguing. How is the measurement being done? And, why would you lose $500--is it some sort of bet?
