In this article, I’m going to show you how you can turn fat into muscle by saying abracadabra and dancing outside on your lawn in your underpants. Seriously – try it, it really works.
If you haven’t cottoned on to the fact that I’m being facetious yet, I am.
I have absolutely no idea (nor any desire) to research the origin of this myth – one of the biggest myths in the modern world – but I have to say, it no doubt originated in some kind of fitness magazine of a bygone era.
Who knows? Who cares?
All that matters is you categorically understand that you cannot turn fat into muscle anymore than you can turn a brick into a limousine.
You see, fat and muscle are two completely different entities… just like bone and muscle are. You’d laugh if someone told you they could turn your wobbly fat into bone, right? So why would you think it’s possible to turn it into muscle?
People completely misunderstand the human body, and when they begin losing fat – particularly if they’ve been training with weights – some automatically assume what they are doing is turning muscle into fat. They’re not.
What’s really happening is, as you lose fat, you are simply uncovering what muscle mass you have. It may be that you have a fair amount of muscle mass, or you have very little – but whatever you do have, it is not the product of a fat conversion. Such a notion is complete fantasy. You are merely uncovering it and showing off your muscle definition by eliminating the fat.
