When it comes to shedding weight to better manage the symptoms of PCOS and improve your overall health, the scale is not always your friend. Here’s why.
The best way to slim down is to simultaneously change your eating habits and increase physical activity. The latter builds muscle mass, which is a good thing because muscle tissue is more metabolically active than other body tissue. So the more muscle you have, the more calories your body burns at rest.
However, muscle weighs more than fat. So, if you lose a pound of fat and gain a pound of muscle, your scale could show your weight actually going up initially before you start shedding pounds with your new fat-burning energy. On the other hand, the measuring tape can’t lie.
As you shed body fat, you lose inches around your waist, hips, thighs and your upper arms. Eventually, you won’t even need the tape measure because those jeans and top that you couldn’t get into will fit now and tell you all you need to know.
