“Why did I gain weight if I’m exercising every day and eating healthy”
This is what my wife asked me after stepping on the scale the other day. She was up a couple of pounds from a few weeks ago - even though she exercises every day and eats a very healthy diet.
On the other hand, she is in the best shape of her life, fitting into clothes that she hasn’t been able to wear for a very long time, and feels great with plenty of energy.
Although muscle doesn’t weigh more than fat, when you exercise and eat healthy, you lose fat and gain muscle - which can sometimes lead to no weight loss or even some slight weight gains. However, the difference in shape of muscle and fat is very noticeable.
