It's ratio driven, so the lighter you are, the more it reduces with each pound.
Yes this ^. its ratio's just as lifting progress. If you keep dropping the same amout each week. That amout lost to your new b/w is a larger %.
Think of it as a 200 lb bench press (fat lost each week).
If Steve, gasper and I do do the 200 lbs, its the same weight (fat loss each week) but my b/w to press ratio (new body weight) will smash Steves or G's (old bodyfat % )
