Build Muscle, Lose Weight. Wait What? 

Hey kids, it's your favorite person! The Pizza Man! Just Kidding! It's me, Jordyn. Man I wish I had a pizza right now.. mmmmm cheese. Can you tell it's lunch time? Anyways, let's get to today's topic! "Build muscle, Lose weight." You see me questioning this saying because the fact of the matter kids is that it doesn't make sense. In reality, muscle weighs more than fat. So for those gym nuts that try to get you on their programs saying you'll drop all of your weight and not gain a pound is some B@llSh!t. Pardon my french but honestly, in the world of truth health and fitness there will be some give and take to what you are gaining and losing.

Let's say Sandra starts doing CrossFit 3 days a week and is eating healthier. Over the course of a month she may lose 10 lbs but, she may gain 4 lbs back in muscle because she hasn't worked out in a long time. Crazy right? For everyone that is super mad that they aren't seeing the results that they want to see but, are doing the right things. That means sticking to only having a cheat meal once a week or drinking once or twice a week. Then let me be the first to tell you to STOP USING THE SCALE. Yep, go back and read that again. I said it, stop using that scale. Why? because in reality the scale isn't going to breakdown how much you lost is fat and how much you gained is actually muscle. What you should be doing is taking pictures of yourself every week or two to see your changes and taking measurements.

I'm going to be honest with you, your measurements are going to vary as well. For Cereals girl, that muscle has to go somewhere. So it may hit your quads first, it may hit your arms, calves, etc. It just depends on what you work out most.    Overall, if you combine your nutrition and fitness together, which is the highly suggested method, you won't just drop the weight and look like a Greek God or Goddess. (Believe me, I've tried) Your weight will fluctuate, you will get off track, and get back on. Believe you me though it's all ok. But remember, our goal here is to build muscle, lose fat.
