When you start a fitness journey, you lose fat, but you also gain muscle. These changes can lead to a weight loss plateau, which is always a frustrating experience. Even though your body is changing, the scale just isn’t showing you those changes.
If this happens, you need to remind yourself that, even if you’re not losing weight, you’re still losing body fat and gaining muscle mass. And on top of that, muscles also burn more calories than fat, even at rest. By embarking on your fitness journey, you’re also increasing your resting metabolic rate and improving your fitness level.
So next time you need to measure your fitness progress by seeing a change in numbers, check up on our body fat percentage calculator instead of the scale!
