Should I be concerned about my Weight Loss

Hi all,
I just looking for some advice on whether I should be concerned about my weight loss or not.

At the start of the year I decided I wanted to lose some weight. I am 6ft male 23 y/o, and weighed in at 83.7kg. I ate badly, and did no excercise, but play 30 mins of football and golf at the weekend.

I started running, and I am no able to run 10/15km easily, but now weight in at 72kg, 12% body fat. My body fat percentage started at 18.8%. My muscle percentage has also increased by 3% to 44%.

Whilst this does sound like a success story (which I hope it is), I just wanted to double check. Since our lockdown has been lifted, I run maybe once a week at max and do 5km and play golf perhaps 4 times a week, but I’m still losing weight, despite the fact I have been eating like a horse in hope to maintain my goal weight of 72.5kg.

Have I just kick started my metabolism? Has anyone else encountered the same thing where you can’t stop losing weight? Advice and stories are welcome!

Thank you all!

Ryan

I’ve no suggestions but it sounds to me like you need to add more to your daily food? Do you count calories or just eat?

I've experienced this, I went from many frustrations to SHIT I'M STILL LOSING and I was eating more calories than I could stand ... it was definitely down to my body mass and frequency which includes intensity of workouts.

Do you just eat or are you counting in any way? At that time I was on macros and used myfitnesspal. I upped my carbs as I mainly ate clean and higher fats.

Well done on your success story. Like Wobbles mentioned it sounds like you need to up your calories - carbs - macros. Metabolism sounds on fire.
