I'm a certified fitness instructor and certified personal trainer, and I can tell you: muscle does not weigh more than fat. A pound of muscle and a pound of fat weigh exactly the same: one pound.Muscle, however, is more dense than fat. So if you lose a pound of fat and gain a pound of muscle, you will weigh exactly the same, but you will be smaller, because the muscle takes up less room.This is a pet peeve of mine, and commonly people who have no education in health and fitness often say. A pound is a pound is a pound, regardless of whether it's muscle or fat. The muscle is just more dense and takes up less space.
