Scale myth

"Weight loss" is not the same as "fat loss" or "burning fat"

Let's refute the scale myth for good! 

Scale won't show you how healthy your body is or how your diet works out!

It can be some point of reference for those who do not train, but for active one scale won't show the truth! 


Don't be a scale's slave and weight yourself each day! 

Women's weight can vary depends on menstrual cycle - we have a tendency to accumulate water and we are depend on our hormones.

How does it work?

If we are exercising, we are gaining muscles which weight the same as fat. 
That is why by exercising we simple replacing fat (which is burned by our hard work) with growing muscles (you can not turn fat into muscles, but you can burned fat and grow muscles)
We are getting thinner because muscles require less space. But the scale will show the same amount! So what??? I guess you are interested more in having a flat belly than having a number on scale? Will you go on the beach with that scale or rather with your new sexy belly?

Picture below perfectly illustrate what I am talking about:

The same person, different weight. 1kg of fat is the same some 1 kg of muscles but, as you can see, it makes a huge difference!

Another example of girl which actually gain weight but looks better and thinner in "after" photo:

So what to do now? Throw your scale and measure yourself. It is only point of reference if you wont to check progress of your trainings. Measure yourself once a month, for example. Waist, hips, arms and thighs will be enough.

where to measure yourself - I recommend to choose waist, hips, thigh and arm

And soon I will write about how get rid of this fat which I wrote so much about! :)
