Fat Vs. Muscle

Most people determine how skinny they are by stepping on a scale, and if it’s a low number, that means they’re a super model. But to tell you the truth, that’s just anĀ opticalĀ illusion. The number you see on the scale tells you jack squat, and to be frank, it doesn’t really matter. Believe it or not, it might be better to see a higher number on the scale than lower. This is because muscle is heavier than fat. Plus, fat takes up more than half the space than muscle does in the body.
