Have you ever wondered what five pounds of fat looks like?
Since we began living the low-carb lifestyle, we are reminded about once a month when we meet with our diet doctor.
The five fat pounds are the yellow ones on the left-hand side in the photo above.
The red blob is lean muscle mass; interestingly it weighs about six ounces more than the fat does, just as trainers and weight-management articles have been preaching to us for years.
You can imagine what losing even one five-pound blob of fat must feel like, not to mention two or three (or more!).
It’s such a boost to the cardiovascular system, not to mention major joints such as the knees and hips.
