• Why am I lighter than my friends but much much fatter?
    27 replies, posted
I weigh 146 now, I've been dieting on a 1200-2000 calorie (Depending on activity level) a day diet since January 2nd. My friend is 1 inch taller than me weights 150, and has a very low body fat percentage. I weigh myself in the morning when I first wake up and when I don't there's about a 3-5 lbs difference, for instance if I weigh myself right after dinner that day. So even if he were to weigh himself in the morning, he would probably weigh just as much as me. And my scale is not broken, I weighed a 10 lbs weight, and the scale was 10lbs spot on, added a 2 1/2 and it was 12.5 exactly. So is there any explanation to this? What else would make him weigh more other than fat?
Bone. Water weight.
more like you dieted shittily and lost muscle . n1
[QUOTE=caaaasus;29179994]more like you dieted shittily and lost muscle . n1[/QUOTE] Haven't lost any strength at all. I ate quite alot of protein rich foods. Maybe a bit less than I used to, but I don't look like I've lost any muscle.
muscle weighs more than fat
[QUOTE=FoodStuffs;29180207]muscle weighs more than fat[/QUOTE] That's good to know, because I've lost alot of fat, went down 2 jean sizes, went from a 37 abdomen to 32. And theirs no way that all I lost in the past 4 months is muscle and not fat.
its probabally your frame size. Like the size of your bones.
I'm at an even 200 and i've got a nice little gut that i just can't seem to shake. Then again, i won't lie and say i've tried super hard. Just a bit. I did lose 25 pounds...but i need to ditch more to rid myself of my spare tire.

[QUOTE=FoodStuffs;29180207]muscle weighs more than fat[/QUOTE] I knew some idiot would post this. Hey hey, which weighs more, 1 tonne of rocks or 1 tonne of feathers? Lmao. [editline]15th April 2011[/editline] The correct saying is (that every dude and his dog seems to fuck up) : "Muscle is more [B]dense[/B] than fat." Density has nothing to do with weight lrn2 science
holy shit i'm talking about the same amount of fat to muscle smartass
[QUOTE=FoodStuffs;29191122]holy shit i'm talking about the same amount of fat to muscle smartass[/QUOTE] What It would still be the same lmao 1lb of fat is the same weight as 1lb of muscle. It's still 1lb.
Muscle is much more dense than fat. Fat isn't as dense as muscle tissue. Ergo: M = V*rho which means that 1lb of fat takes much more volume than 1lb of muscle. That is why you can be much fatter but still be lighter than a smaller person who has more musszselz.

They're saying that muscle is more compact, therefore 1lb of it can fit in a much smaller space than 1lb of fat. It is definitely possible for someone smaller to weigh more due to having more muscle mass.
seriously, why do you have to call people out on shit when you'd have to be a retard to not know what they're talking about
[QUOTE=FoodStuffs;29203869]seriously, why do you have to call people out on shit when you'd have to be a retard to not know what they're talking about[/QUOTE] I call people out for saying stupid shit. You said stupid shit. When you say "muscle weighs more than fat" you are saying "muscle weighs more than fat". I'm not a psychic who is supposed to know that when you say "muscle weighs more than fat" you are actually just saying "muscle is more dense than fat, but I say it weighs more because its easier to say" Which is retarded btw. [editline]16th April 2011[/editline] Lmao just accept that you said something that was wrong and move on

it leads to some misconceptions
The only people that would make misconceptions based off of that statement are retarded, therefore you shouldn't be discussing things with them in the first place.
i guess i should never talk to you or any of the other people in wf then oh boy
[QUOTE=MaverickIB;29237286]The only people that would make misconceptions based off of that statement are retarded, therefore you shouldn't be discussing things with them in the first place.[/QUOTE] No? It's spreading misinformation when you say wrong shit. People here really need thicker skin jesus christ. Tell someone they are stupid or wrong and suddenly tears everywhere. Just call me a faggot etc and move on.
i would never!!
