    Fantastic article.
    In short – age 25, 13.5 stone, very fit and muscular. Age 56 18 stone very unfit and fat. October 2014 went on diet by March 2015 had lost 2 stone and decided to go back to the gym and do a combination of 3 days a week weight training and 2 days cardio. For the past 2 months my weight has stayed the same. Your article confirmed my thoughts so no problem there, however, I figure that my ideal weight at 57 will possibly be 14.5 stone ( of course only visuals could confirm this). Question. If I continue this program for another year or so, will I be 16 stone of muscle with about 15% or less body fat, when I think 14.5 stone would be my ideal weight? How am I going to lose that extra 1.5 stone?
    Best wishes,

    I appreciate this blog. I’m 5’2 and normally weigh 133 lbs but many people didn’t believe it! I recently had recovered from alcoholism and I put on almost 25 lbs during that time. I’ve been working out and living my active lifestyle again but it seems as if that weight has seem to stick. Since I read your article, I’ve taken measurements and photos and have seen more leaner muscle. I still way the same but my waist is thinner and I feel more active. I’ve noticed the water weight differences the most during pre menstrual times. Thank you for this article.

  • […] Again, I did gain 1 pound this week. Why? Either from me eating all that Peruvian food or per my measurements I gain lean muscle mass and lost 1% of body fat. From my understanding muscle weighs more than fat. And I read a great article by Bamboo Core Fitness on ONE POUND OF FAT VERSUS ONE POUND OF MUSCLE: CLEARING UP THE MISCONCEPTIONS […]
