What’s heavier: a pound of Fat or a pound of Muscle?

take54u today and aim not to lose weight, but to tone up…

A pound of Fat is obviously the same weight as a pound of muscle. But…a pound of Fat has about 3 times more volume than a pound of Muscle.

People aim at improving their diet so that it is more nutritious and healthy for them so that they will lose weight.

But, when we lose fat from our body we lose masswhich is good…but we need to replace this mass with something or the body will have that empty look.

We need to replace the mass with MUSCLE and because muscle has a smaller volume than fat, pound for pound, we may not see a huge dip on those scales.

So if your plan is to lose weight then lets look at adjusting your Goal.

The human body looks better and healthier when it is toned. The way we get toned is to do resistance exercise to build and tone muscles.

And not only does muscle make the body look better and you more stronger, it raises your resting metabolic rate; so you burn more calories. And it protects joints and improves your posture.

So adjust your Goal. Think not of a journey of ‘diet’ and weight loss, but of Healthy Eating, Fat loss and Muscle Build and Tone.

  1. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like to
    send you an email. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

  2. With havin so much content and articles do you ever
    run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?

    My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    • Stewart, I don’t I’m afraid. Think if anyone uses your content then it’s always nice to put a link back to the original content. Sort of a Blog ‘etiquette’.
      Thanks for reading and thanks for commenting. I will check your blog out too.

    • Hi there,
      Box at the bottom of the homepage for you to put your details and subscribe. You’ll get an email with new posts. I write Mon-Fri so there should be a few ideas of inspiration for us all to ponder.

  3. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button! I’d definitely donate to this brilliant blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my
    Google account. I look forward to fresh updates and will talk about this blog with my Facebook group.

    Chat soon!

  4. I just like the valuable info you supply in your articles.

    I’ll bookmark your blog and test again here frequently. I am slightly certain I’ll be informed many
    new stuff proper here! Good luck for the following!

  5. I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net
    will be much more useful than ever before.

    • Thanks so much for the comment, and indeed for taking the time to write.
      I enjoy writing the blog and learning myself too as I write it. But I appreciate that others are enjoying the content :-)

  6. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of
    your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot
    of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    • Thanks for the comment. Always appreciate feedback.
      My Blog is a little piece of work in progress and will hopefully be making changes soon. Your advice will be taken, so thanks for that.
      Take care, thanks for reading :-)

  7. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.

    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?

    My blog addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the
    way!

  8. These mutations somewhat diminish, but do not nearly completely inhibit, the
    normal function of alpha-glucosidase. Just make sure that whatever routine you decide on that you do it on a
    regular basis so you can achieve the best results.
    One mistake that people who want to build muscles quickly but have no information is the lack of
    information regarding how much they should eat in order to grow muscles.

    • Hey there, thanks for reading, glad you enjoy the content.
      Don’t quite understand your question, sorry.
      Is it a question about a specific post or topic? Give us more details and i’ll try my best to help. Thanks

  9. I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any
    interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth
    enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you
    did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

  10. Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO?
    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing
    very good success. If you know of any please share.

    Thanks!

  11. Thank you, I have just been searching for info about this subject for a while
    and yours is the best I’ve came upon so far. However, what about the bottom line? Are you positive about the supply?

  12. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who has been doing a little homework on this.
    And he actually bought me breakfast due to the fact that I stumbled upon it for him.
    .. lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!
    ! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to talk
    about this subject here on your site.

  13. Wenn ich es nicht wirklich wissen würde, dann würde ich ohne Weiteres
    darauf tippen, dass der Beitrag “Whats heavier: a pound of Fat or a pound of Muscle? | take54u!” aus meinen
    Tastaturhänden entspringen könnte so detailliert wie der hier steht.
    Daumen hoch und weiterhin viel Erfolg weiter so in Zukunft!
