"Muscle weighs more than fat"

Friday, June 19, 2015

I felt like I wasn't getting anywhere with my weight loss and it was really starting to get to me, so I decided to ask Nick for his advice and he designed a food plan for me.

In 2 weeks I lost 4.5lbs, which I'm really pleased with! It's been hard, but nothing is easy - it's just about getting your body used to the change! And most importantly - sticking to the plan!

I think the above image really highlights the difference in volume between fat and muscle. You may have heard the saying "Muscle weighs more than fat", which is kind of confusing because one pound of msucle is going to weigh the same as one pound of fat. Actually muscle takes up less space than fat; one pound of muscle occupies less space than one pound of fat, as muscle is about 18% more dense than fat (this is where the confusion comes from).
