    I weigh 146 now, I've been dieting on a 1200-2000 calorie (Depending on activity level) a day diet since January 2nd.

    My friend is 1 inch taller than me weights 150, and has a very low body fat percentage.

    I weigh myself in the morning when I first wake up and when I don't there's about a 3-5 lbs difference, for instance if I weigh myself right after dinner that day.

    So even if he were to weigh himself in the morning, he would probably weigh just as much as me.

    And my scale is not broken, I weighed a 10 lbs weight, and the scale was 10lbs spot on, added a 2 1/2 and it was 12.5 exactly.

    So is there any explanation to this? What else would make him weigh more other than fat?

    Haven't lost any strength at all. I ate quite alot of protein rich foods. Maybe a bit less than I used to, but I don't look like I've lost any muscle.

    That's good to know, because I've lost alot of fat, went down 2 jean sizes, went from a 37 abdomen to 32.

    And theirs no way that all I lost in the past 4 months is muscle and not fat.

    Then again, i won't lie and say i've tried super hard. Just a bit. I did lose 25 pounds...but i need to ditch more to rid myself of my spare tire.

    You probably lost a lot of muscle though.

    I knew some idiot would post this.




    Hey hey, which weighs more, 1 tonne of rocks or 1 tonne of feathers?



    Lmao.

    Edited:

    The correct saying is (that every dude and his dog seems to fuck up) :

    "Muscle is more dense than fat."

    Density has nothing to do with weight

    Muscle is much more dense than fat. Fat isn't as dense as muscle tissue.
    Ergo: M = V*rho which means that 1lb of fat takes much more volume than 1lb of muscle.
    That is why you can be much fatter but still be lighter than a smaller person who has more musszselz.

    This.

    People aren't saying 1lb of muscle weighs more than 1lb of fat. They're saying that muscle is more compact, therefore 1lb of it can fit in a much smaller space than 1lb of fat. It is definitely possible for someone smaller to weigh more due to having more muscle mass.

    I call people out for saying stupid shit. You said stupid shit.

    When you say "muscle weighs more than fat" you are saying "muscle weighs more than fat". I'm not a psychic who is supposed to know that when you say "muscle weighs more than fat" you are actually just saying "muscle is more dense than fat, but I say it weighs more because its easier to say"

    Which is retarded btw.

    Edited:

    Lmao just accept that you said something that was wrong and move on

    1 cubic cm fat weighs less than 1 cubic cm muscle.

    The only people that would make misconceptions based off of that statement are retarded, therefore you shouldn't be discussing things with them in the first place.

    No?

    It's spreading misinformation when you say wrong shit.

    People here really need thicker skin jesus christ. Tell someone they are stupid or wrong and suddenly tears everywhere.

    Just call me a faggot etc and move on.
