Muscle Vs. Fat

How can 2 women that are the same height and weight have completely different shapes?
Example
Jane is 5’6″ and weights 135 lbs with perfect shape and wears a size 6 Jill also 5’6″ and weights 135lbs with a pudgy shape wears a size 9. Why does Jill need a size 9??

Here’s why:
Jill has much more body fat then her friend Jane.
Jill’s extra fat takes up more space then Jane’s muscle.
1lb of fat is 18 % bigger then 1lb muscle (lean tissue).
1lb of fat burns 2 calories a day.
1lb of muscle burns 6 calories a day.
1lb of muscle is 3 times more efficient at burning calories then fat
You have to burn 3500 calories to lose 1lb of fat
For every 1lb. of muscle you gain, your body burns an extra 50 calories/day doing nothing!
The more lean tissue (muscle) you have the faster your metabolism!

LOOK AT THE DIFFERENCE IN THE SIZE OF 1LB OF MUSCLE COMPARED TO 1LB OF FAT. THE FAT TAKES UP MORE ROOM!!And it’s very unhealthy!
Each 1lb of extra fat your body has requires 200 extra miles of veins to move blood. So this means your heart has to work harder to pump blood.
A person who is 25lbs over weight (Body Fat) needs 5000 extra miles of blood vessels for the heart can pump blood through the body.

Let me design a program for you guaranteed to change your fat to lean ratio.
