Most people rely on the weight scale to measure how healthy they are. Our society as a whole places a huge emphasis on weight, which can lead to dieters believing that, if they don't weigh a specific number, they aren't healthy.
But, in reality, weight doesn’t always measure health.
This is true for many reasons, one being that muscle weighs more than fat. If you’re strength training as you practice healthier eating habits, you may not see much of a number drop on the scale. That doesn’t mean you’re not on the right track.
That being said, there are ways you can evaluate your overall health – besides the number on your scale.
