    Default "Waist" size question....

    Robert, or anyone else, how much waist size increase is attributable to actual fat around the waist vs the muscles of the "core" growing? If I hadn't gained ANY fat, would my waist size still have grown, just due to muscle growth, and if yes, is there a general rule to how much this waist growth would be?

    Hope this makes sense.

    Probably mostly body fat after a certain point. Your abs, obliques, and low back all contribute too though.

    Thank you sir. A weak attempt at a follow up. Could the increase in size AROUND THE BELLY BUTTON (vs belt line/waist) be a bit more due to muscle growth vs fat, or is the answer the same?

    If you are referring to your abdomen only (not the entire waist) then I would probably guess it's marginal. The fat looks less squishy as it happens though.
