THIS WEEK’S “ASK GILAD” BLOG

Question: I recently started a fitness program and I feel better.  I have more energy and my muscles are just starting to develop. My problem is, I haven't lost any weight.  I actually think I have gained a pound or two. What am I doing wrong?

Answer: 

It may surprise you to know that I hear this quite often. So what is happening here?
The key is that muscle weighs two and a half times more than fat. When you exercise on a regular basis and stick to a helthy diet you are constantly challenging your muscles to perform causing them to get stronger and more dense...and, consequently, to weigh more.
At the same time you are burning off fat. In other words, you are turning your body into a lean and healthy machine. You are gaining weight and losing body fat. People who are muscular can weigh more than people of the same height who are sedentary, but have much slimmer figures and wear smaller sized clothes. 
 
You are on the right track!
