Stop Letting the Scale Mess with Your Mind

March 31, 2016 — Leave a comment

Since the first picture was taken 2 months ago I am up about 10 pounds on the scale. For many the scale represents the true picture of weight loss and gain so they easily become discouraged and frustrated when the numbers do not reflect what they want. If anything, the scale is the true saboteur of your best efforts and ultimate transformation. So the reason why I am showing you my pictures is that you have to look at the whole picture when building muscle or even losing weight. I could be freaking out right now about the numbers BUT I know better and I want others to know better for themselves. When you are not just “losing weight” but “changing body composition” with increased muscle and decreased body fat this is positively reflected in the pictures and inches, NOT the scale. The undeniable truth is that muscle tissue is so much denser than fat so when you replace fat with a similar volume of muscle there will be a corresponding decrease or increase of inches in different places (for example, my shoulder girth increases as my waist and butt decreases). This can be accompanied by either no change in body weight OR an increase. To build a significant amount of muscle in a relatively short period of time, without gaining unwanted body fat, I have not gone to any extremes either, just a combination of smart exercise, smarter eating, nutritional cleansing and some uniquely effective pre/post-exercise nutritional support (Amped Performance Nutrition & IsaLean Pro). Remember the scale is not always our friend and is a very limited tool for tracking results beyond measure. Stop settling on what the scale tells you. Don’t let it hold you back from achieving much greater results that the scale is incapable of measuring. ‪#‎musclegains‬ ‪#‎forgetthescale‬ ‪#‎amped‬
