  • This question reminded me of something...

    I was talking to a friend about weight and she was telling me that she has gained weight after working so hard to loose. I asked her if she started exercising recently and mentioned that fat weighs less than muscle. She said that's not true....I said yes it is. She said no it isn't. And then she proceeded to tell me that a pound of fat weighs the same as a pound of muscle, it's just that muscle is more compact so there isn't as much of it.

    I literally had to walk away.....

  • A pound of fat and a pound of muscle is still a pound silly some people can be.
