The scale isn’t budging…. You are putting in the time, working out and lifting heavier than you have prior. Your clothes are FITTING better and you FEEL smaller but what is going on? That SCALE number isn’t budging or even worse, it keeps going up?
Did you know that 5 lbs of muscle and 5 lbs of fat may WEIGH the same if you put them on the scale? BUT here is the thing, the same 5lbs in fat takes up so much more VOLUME then the same 5lbs in muscle! Chances are you have heard this, but take a look at this picture, it says 1000 words.
The same people that say they “know this” are the ones that get upset when they workout intensely, lift heavier weights and wonder why the scale isn’t “drastically” going down. 5 lbs of muscle does NOT weigh more than 5 lbs of fat. The 5 lbs of muscle weighs the SAME as 5 lbs of fat.
Muscle takes up so much less space than fat. So yes, your weight may not adjust much, but when you replace fat with muscle you will be so much smaller and tighter
