To all that are starting and are reluctant to use the BPEL method of measuring, I highly recommend that you do. When I first started out, I didn’t want to use the BPEL method because no one cares about how much you have behind your layer of fat. What’s shown on the outside is what counts. But, when I started getting serious about this process, I realized how important doing the BPEL method is. It’s because I could not be sure that I was consistently measuring the same way each time doing the NBPEL method, press just slightly into your abdomen, and you’ll gain a 1/16” to 1/8” of an inch. By pushing through that layer of fat, I’m getting as consistent a measurement as I can.
However, I did notice something in the last two weeks or so. There’s a difference in measuring between measuring from the top versus the side. After a while, I realized that when I pushed the ruler back into my abdomen from the top, I made me want to ejaculate. Not sure why. So, I started measuring from the side. It doesn’t seem to want to ejaculate if I measure from the side. Weird, I know. But by measuring from the side, I gained almost another 1/4” and I know that’s impossible in a short 2-week period.
So, I guess whatever method you decide to use, be consistent. Just be aware that your measurements will differ depending on which technique you use.
That being said.. I still made gains of about 1/2” in 6-weeks.
