The scale is liar and this is 1 lbs of fat…

Frequently monitoring the scale to watch your weight change is the most inaccurate method of gauging your progress. A lot of people tend to do it daily, hourly, and even after every meal. These numbers will certainly fluctuate up and down and, if you’re a “scale watcher”, the changing numbers are due to water and, probably, the actual weight of the food in your stomach. When it comes to real dieting, the goal is FAT LOSS. Not NUMBER LOSS.

This picture is 1 lbs of fat and fat actually takes some time to build up in our bodies. It will not be there overnight and, especially, not after 1 meal. There is no way this built up in your body in a few hours. This is SCIENCE. Not Lego.

One great workout or healthy meal won’t make this blob of goo disappear either.

Use the scale sparingly because fat loss takes time. Be patient with your goals, crush your workouts, and be compliant with your diet – everything else (including fat loss) will soon follow.
