Hi, my body fat and body fat percentage show increased during and around periods...Is there any correlation. I searched on internet, and all i could find was low body fat perc can lead to insufficient periods.
I am 13 stones now, and need to lose weight, doing all the good things, working towards increasing the lean mass and cutting out on bad carbs, but today, when i checked my body fat, it was increased 4 kgs....although the weight remained same. Please help !

Your cycle affects the hydration levels of your muscle tissue - this is what is measured by the machine. It's best to avoid measuring around your period
