Fat vs. Muscle – which is heavier?

David's GT Fitness Blog

Which is heavier, 5lbs of FAT or 5lbs of MUSCLE?

Muscle is more dense and fat has more displacement.

I have been a personal trainer since 2001 and this question is the one I hear most from people who are being less accountable with what they eat and how much activity they do.

The most important thing to learn here is that all the muscle in your body is what burns all the fat in your body.  Women will QUIT a training program because they “feel” they are getting “TOO BIG”!!

Muscle is lean, fat is flabby but 5lbs is 5lbs
