Fat vs. Muscle


Powerful demonstration of what 5 pounds of both muscle and fat look like.  This should make it much more clear that losing 5 pounds of fat will make you much smaller than adding 5 pounds of muscle will make you large.  Many women are afraid of adding muscle because they don’t want big bulky bodies.  The only thing making bodies big and bulky is excess fat, as shown above.  Don’t be afraid to add muscle to your frame. In addition to it creating a lean, healthy appearance, it will help increase your metabolism which in turn will burn more calories while you are at rest.

One thought on “Fat vs. Muscle”

  1. would be nice if BMI calculators could somehow take into consideration that even though my weight is higher than average, because a lot of it is muscle, it still shows me as ‘overweight’. disheartening to say the least.
