Fat Loss Vs Weight Loss – What’s the Difference and Which One is Better?

It is important to know healthy weight loss facts. It can sometimes be hard to tell what is real from what is fake. I have had clients who have, in the past, spent many thousands of dollars on what can only be called weight-loss scams.

Weight loss and fat loss is a MULTI-BILLION dollar industry. In the United States alone, this industry is estimated to be worth over 100 Billion US dollars in the year 2007. That is one country, in one year!

The truth is, the weight loss and fat loss market are so incredibly huge, that it is possible to be profitable by simply selling a scam and leaving a customer or client disappointed, upset, frustrated, and worst of all… too scared to try again. Thus damning them to a life of poor health and low quality.

So what is it about fat loss vs weight loss? If you search for either of these terms in an online search engine, you will get millions of hits. Many from the same websites. It may seem slightly obvious to some, but fat loss and weight loss are not the same.

I say that I can help a person “lose weight” simply because weight loss is what most people commonly ask for and it is a term they easily understand. But as soon as I get the chance, I educate them that FAT LOSS is the key issue, not weight loss. Once you start reading the articles on this site, it will become very clear that I don’t actually care about weight loss. Why is this so?

Fat Loss vs Weight Loss: Round 1

Weight loss simply means “being lighter on the weighing scale” (scale weight). While it’s true that overweight people do tend to carry a lot of fat, we cannot just consider “scale weight” when we set goals for ourselves. I don’t care that much about my client’s scale weight. I couldn’t care less if they lost 30 pounds. 20 or 40 or even NONE would have been fine as well. Why is that? The simplest way I explain it to people is as follows:

You see, most of us want to look good and perform well, whether in daily tasks or as an athlete who needs to control our own body to play a sport well. In general, this means having more muscles and less fat.

Fat doesn’t help us at all in most sports, muscles do.

Fat doesn’t look good on our hips, thighs, or tummies, muscles do.
