One Pound of Fat Versus One Pound of Muscle

One Pound of Fat Versus One Pound of Muscle

Many people say that muscle weighs more than fat, but in reality, a pound is a pound.  One pound of fat is going to weigh the same as one pound of muscle – just like one pound of bricks is going to weigh the same as one pound of feathers. The difference is, muscle and fat differ in density.  Muscle is about 18% more dense than fat.  One pound of muscle occupies less space (volume) within the body than one pound of fat.
