Dispelling the irritating myth
A few blogs ago I asked you guys what your most irritating weight loss advice/saying was. The one that always makes me laugh is “a pound of muscle weighs more than a pound of fat.” Um NO. It doesn’t. A pound of potato flakes weighs the same as a pound of steel. Period. A pound is a pound is a pound, you dig?
Now, DENSITY, yes…that’s where they differ. A pound (or 5) of fat takes up more space than a pound of muscle. See...
Well meaning advice is fine and dandy, just make sure you're giving the right kind! ;-)
