Muscle V Fat

Muscle V Fat

 

Muscle v fat….

Something I hear people say all the time is muscle weighs more than fat?

Well sorry to burst your bubble but it actually weighs the same.

5kgs of fat weighs the same as 5kgs of muscle. (Yes I did pass math in Grade 4 thanks Mr Farrow).

Where most people get confused is that muscle is more dense than fat. So you can weigh the same but look completely different.

You want more muscle because muscle uses fat at rest as a source of energy plus muscle is what shapes you.

Fat makes you look flabby so you want to build muscle and have a greater muscle to fat ratio.

Going on yoyo diets makes us lose weight, not fat and therefore when you are naked you look flabby and that ain’t cool.
