Question:
Will my muscle turn to fat if I stop working out?

Answer:
Muscle and fat are two entirely separate substances in our bodies. We can gain or lose muscle, just like we can gain or lose fat, but we can’t convert one into the other.

If you stop exercising, you’ll start losing muscle. This results in a slower metabolism, meaning that you burn fewer calories. The result: It’s easier to gain body fat.
