30 Bananas a Day!

Body weight relatively stable/clothes getting looser?

What does it mean if your weight on a scale is not greatly different, but your clothes are looser and you look thiner than you did months ago. I have gone down at least a pant size, but the scale only says 5 lbs different.


I am not complaining as I dont really care what the scale says, I will take the smaller clothes over that thing any day, I am just really curious if there is a scientific explanation for this. I have heard before that muscle weighs more than fat, so if you are working out (which I am) you can develop muscle while loosing fat and become smaller. I have also heard however, that this is a myth.


Anyone know the facts?

Well, you know what they say about muscle being heavier than fat ; D

Congrats!

I have a similar experience, it means don't worry too much. :)

could be denser muscles (more water) leaner muscle and potentially more of it as you mention. ALso being fully hydrated means your osgans will possibly be denser too.

You are on the right track however the statement "muscle weighs more than fat" is incorrect and illogical. A pound of muscle weights exactly the same as a pound of fat.

What is correct to say is that muscle is more dense than fat and so takes up less volume.

My guess would be that you have lost fat but increased muscle mass which is ideal. Do you do any resistance training? This is the best way to increase muscle mass.
