If I stop working out, will my muscles turn to fat?
Muscles will never turn to fat, even if you stop working out, since these two are entirely different tissues. When you stop going to the gym what happens is muscle atrophy or the shrinking of muscles due to inactivity. As they say, if you don’t use it, you lose it. As it happens, you gain unwanted weight which is essentially fat because you have been accustomed to eating more food when you trained before.
