Beside this, why do I weigh more but look skinnier?
The difference is that muscle is more compactthan fat, which means that it takes up less space. However, thesame mass of muscle weighs more than the same mass of fat,which may explain why you appear thinner but weighmore.
Similarly, does everyone's head weigh the same? The human head contains the brain which weighsabout 3 pounds. In all, an adult head weighs around 10 to 11pounds (4.5 to 5 kg).
Similarly, can you weigh the same but look slimmer?
Since dense muscle tissue takes up less space than fat,it's possible you may weigh the same (or even more)yet appear slimmer than another person with the sameweight, a similar height and frame because of the difference inyour body composition."
What is a skinny fat person?
The medical term for this is "MONW," or metabolicallyobese normal weight, which I prefer to refer to as being askinny fat person. It means you are under lean but overfat -- not enough muscle and too much fat (especiallybelly fat). It seems it is better to be fat and fitthan thin and out of shape.
