Muscle Weighs More Than Fat

“Muscle weighs more than Fat…..”

Really?  I hear this so many times and it frustrates me as how can anything that weighs 1 pound (lb)  weigh less than something else that weighs 1lb , it’s just not possible .

The difference between Fat and muscle is the density, muscle is a much leaner tissue and therefore takes up less space , so if you imagine a Football and a Tennis ball then the Football will be the 1lb of Fat and the Tennis ball the 1lb of muscle!

Hope that clears that myth up.
