Fat loss or weight loss? – Pounds or inches? – Where is your mindset?
Muscle Does Not Weigh More Than Fat (5lbs is 5lbs), but muscle takes up less room than fat!
Fat is bulky and lumpy so if you carry an extra five pound of fat, you’ll be bigger than with five pounds more muscle. A five pound pile of fat will take up more space (volume) than a five pound pile of muscle; “Muscle is heavier by volume than fat.”
A woman weighing 11 stone with 19% fat will look much smaller (and be much healthier) than a woman at 11 stone with 35% fat. They weigh the same, yet the composition is different. Because muscle is more dense than fat the person with less fat and more muscle will look smaller.
Don’t be obsessed with body weight start paying attention to body composition. How much body fat do you have compared to muscle? Simply seeing how much you weigh isn’t very helpful. You need to measure and weigh yourself to plot your fat loss.
