Muscle vs. Fat

People tend to look at the scale a lot when trying to lose weight, and it could be really frustrating when that scale we trust so much is not budging. This is especially true when you are working hard and eating right. Well, consider this: Are your clothes becoming looser? Are you actually seeing your muscle definition come through? Then it may be that you are losing fat and putting on muscle, which is great news!

Muscles and fat weigh the same, but muscles take up less space. This is why visual confirmation is more important than the scale. If you want to be really certain, using a measuring tape or a body fat calculator works too.

Cheers Eights & Weights!
