We all know that “ muscle weighs more than fat ”. I.e., that the objective to achieve a healthy body should not be simply to lose weight, but there to eliminate fat and build muscle to get in shape. The volume difference between FAT and muscle It is that a person may be in the form without having to weigh less: even it is quite likely that is gross weight.
The reason is simple: 1 kg of muscle is much less volume than 1Kg of fat. This is what shows in the top video, but there the comparison is with 5 pounds of weight. The case is that fat weighs the same, but occupies much space, while the muscle, weighing the same as fat, much less occupying space. This is what is also observed in the image of this blog link dibde appears a picture comparing the volume of fat and muscle.
That is why these people (I don’t want to sound sexist, but they tend to be women) that they simply stop eating, or try any “ diet miracle “ with the idea of losing weight to look better in the summer, they should remember that losing a few pounds is nothing attractive if the body remains weak and flaccid.
The solution, as always, It passes through change of habits and combining a healthy diet with exercise of certain intensity. Do not become obsessed with the scale, since losing weight is not a signal to improve the health or the physical, and sometimes maintain or gain weight can be very healthy if getting burn fat and gain muscle with a proper diet and exercise program.
In this article I do not come to say a lot, but a picture is worth a thousand words, so I wanted to share with you both video as image comparison of the 5 lbs of fat and muscle, for that we have in mind is such a significant difference in volume.
