Veiny feet, good sign of fat loss?

    I have noticed in the past couple of weeks that my feet are getting really veiny. Veins that push the skin out.

    Is this a good sign that i'm still shedding fat?

    Decreased measured bodyfat, how your clothes are fitting, and (perhaps) lost scale weight are signs that you're shedding fat.

    Not to be rude; but even though vascularity becomes evident as you lose fat, why would you try to determine anything based on foot veins or even think about it?

    Nice job man. Ive lost nearly the same since over the last 2 years.

    I too have a great deal of veins in my feet/ankles now

    Any visible veins are signs that there is no longer as much fat covering them.

    Keep up the good work man. YOu know you are doing great when you start seeing veins on your stomach, shoulders, etc :tu:

    I'm a long way from veins in my stomach. However, I do have veins on my hands and I have some that are slowly creeping their way up my arms from the wrists. I have a couple on each arm like that.

    no worries man, they'll come along

    I first got a few in my arms as well, and now they are starting to show else where on my body

    my arms look like one of those trees covered in vines when I lift now

    Yup, I'm also getting veins that are popping up all over my body (including my feet) My forearms art the worst (best) but i'm also getting tons of veins in my shoulder areas and my thighs. They started coming in a few months ago and I would only notice them after i lifted, now they are there 24/7 and I seem to be seeing more and more every day. The wife hates them, but I don't really care.... It's still better than fat rolls hanging everywhere.

    Hmm, I've been a soccer player all my life, so I dont think I've ever even noticed veins on feet. But I think that any sign of fat loss is a good sign.

    Vascularity usually increases as BF% decreases. Not the most accurate way to measure a loss but one of my personal favorites.

    Seriously

    My feet are RIPPED. You can see between the toes. I'll post pics if anyone wants them. :rolleyes:

    All kidding aside, I think this is more a matter of increased bloodflow. As you get fitter, your body adapts to allow for more blood to be delivered to muscles - and that requires that blood go everywhere, including feet.

    So, I wouldn't look at it as a direct sign of fitness, but as a side effect.

    On the other hand, maybe we can start a website: www.fivepackfeet.com
