Muscle vs Fat

I am sure you have heard the saying "muscle weighs more than fat". This is just not the case. Ten pounds of muscle weighs the same as ten pounds of fat, end of story. However, muscle does take up less space than fat. Muscle is perceived as bulky, when it is actually not. This means you could gain 10 pounds of muscle and lose 10 pounds of fat and look more fit even though your scale hasn't moved.
