Can My Muscles Turn Into Fat?

Fat and muscle are different types of body tissue. They each serve different functions. When you do strength training, your muscles get bigger and stronger. If you stop strength training, your muscles get smaller, and you’ll get weaker. Muscles don’t turn into fat.  The purpose of muscle is to move your body.

The function of fat tissue is to store reserve energy. If your body has too much fat, it means that you’re eating too much food, and not exercising enough, which results in weight gain.
