Agreed. Keep up the good work. If you're large enough to think you broke a chair by sitting on it, the chair probably was stressed from all the other times you had sat on it. One thing to remember, though, is that muscle weighs more than fat, and muscle uses up calories at a faster rate, even when resting. So even if it happened because of your current weight, don't give up the working out. (And I hope by "dieting" you mean that you're getting at least 60 grams of protein a day, eating regular, smaller meals, throughout the day - like 5 to 6 of them - and are drinking plenty of water.)

nicely put #4... i agree completely, except for the protein part... not every person should have 60g of protein a day, it all depends on what they're current weight is and their intensity etc. etc. to much protein in the system will just get flushed out

but keep up the work i'm sure you're doing amazing, and remember muscle does weigh more than fat

Most of what you said is accurate. But muscle does NOT weigh more than fat. One pound of muscle weighs exactly the same as a pound of fat. One pound of gold weighs the same as one pound of marshmallows.

Regardless, if you had not been dieting and exercising for the past three months, that chair would probably have broke 2.5 months ago.

Wow. You're dumb 63
Muscle does weigh more than fat, as in one cubic inch of muscle weighs more than one cubic inch of fat.
About three times as much.
Ofcourse one POUND of gold weighs the same as one POUND of marshmallows. Pound is the unit of measurement for weight. but a cup of marshmellows would weigh way less than a cup of gold.

#63 please go back to elimentary school and learn the difference between measurement and mass. You can measure out a pound of muscle and a pound of fat, but muscle has more MASS than fat, therefore if you take the same amount of fat as mucle, muscle will weigh more.... WOW

Another misguided soul. No, they weigh the same.

Muscle is more dense than fat, but one pound of anything weighs exactly one pound of something else.

You're educated in the U.S. aren't you??

wow, can you please re-read your comment and realize that you just contradicted yourself, muscle has more mass than fat, therefore the if you were to take a portion of fat and the same amount of muslce, the muscle will weigh more... you just told them that muscle weighs the same but is more dense... IT"S MORE DENSE, therefore will weigh more


Your wrong dudee^^^
listen one pound of fat and one pound of muscle, yes, does weight the same.
one CUP of muscle and one CUP of fat weigh different! and if you don't believe me, or anybody else, why don't you go and experiment it?
think before you comment!
