A Surprising Fix for Stubborn Skinny Fat

Check out my client Aaron’s transformation where he lost a whole bunch of fat.

So you’re skinny fat & no matter what you do you just can’t get rid of that last bit of stubborn fat.

You’ve tried dieting all kinds of cardio workouts abdominal workouts & yet the fat especially around your lower belly & your love handles just won’t budge.

You might be frustrated or maybe even demotivated but I promise you there is a solution to this problem & the solution is pretty counterintuitive.

That’s why most people completely miss it & they continue going through the cycle of dieting & doing lots of cardio with no results.

Before I just assume that everyone watching this video is on the same page I do want to mention that diet obviously has a lot to do with this.

So if you haven’t even tried changing your diet & you’re still eating Pop-Tarts & frozen

microwavable dinners then I highly advocate that you first clean up your diet before you move on to this method.

Because for some of you simply changing up your diet & switching junk food out for some real natural single ingredient options can completely change your body around.

But if you have already done that then this video is gonna help you a lot with what your next step should be.

First, understand what skinny fat is?

Typically a skinny fat person will have a good BMI which stands for body mass index & in short it’s a measure of your height to weight ratio.

If you have a good BMI it just means that for your height you have a good weight.

However,the other thing that a typical skinny fat person will have is an elevated body fat percentage.

So if your skinny fat it tells us two things it doesn’t only tell us that your body fat percentage is high

but it also tells us that your lean body mass is low because if both your lean body mass & your body fat percentage

were high then your BMI would not show up as normal, you’d be considered overweight.

So as somebody that falls into this category you can’t just continue focusing on burning fat

because that’s only going to solve half the problem & it’ll do nothing to address the issue with your lean body mass.

That’s why your number one goal when you fall into this skinny fat category has to be to build strength.

Now I know that might sound surprising, how’s building strength going to help you lose that last bit of fat? Right?

Well, I’m telling you it will because by building strength you’re going to be solving the bigger issue.

As a natural building strength is one of the only ways & the best ways that you can stimulate protein synthesis & build more muscle while increasing your metabolic rate.

Now I don’t want you guys to just go full out into bulk mode because you can wind up gaining a whole bunch of body fat & find yourself even more frustrated.

I’m going to give you very specific instructions down to the very percentages of what I want you to do if you find yourself in this skinny fat predicament

because I’ve been there before & I know it can be frustrating so I want to help you guys out.

So you have two options one of them involves a lot more discomfort but if you can make it through the discomfort then I think you’ll be able to fix this faster & more efficiently.

The only question you have to ask yourself is are you willing to get even a little fatter before you get ripped?

Now I know most of the people that clicked on this video would say no I do not want to get any fatter so I’ll start there.

If you’re dead set on starting to work the fat off I don’t want you to create a more drastic calorie deficit.

I want your deficit to be right around five to ten percent from your maintenance calories.

Now I know you might have heard me in numerous videos talking about going for a higher caloric deficit sometimes up to 45 percent from maintenance………….. that advice is not for you.

Again the reason why you’re having this problem is because of your lean body mass & you will not fix it by cutting more calories.

If you don’t know how to find your maintenance calories you can try my calorie calculator that I’ll link up below.

But once you have those maintenance numbers by only reducing a small number of calories

like ten percent you’re going to continue burning a small amount of fat & you’re definitely not going to gain any more fat

while simultaneously giving yourself enough energy & nutrients to continue building strength which will lead you to build muscle.

I want you to keep your workouts consistent for 4 to 6 weeks at a time without changing anything.

So if you’re chest workout is three sets of dumbbell presses three sets of bench presses three sets of flies and three sets of push-ups,

just made that up but let’s say that’s your work out I want you to keep that same workout for 6 weeks straight.

I want you to keep it the same because every time that you do one of those same exercises

I want you to try to up the weight you’re using even if that means having a temporary drop in the number of reps you can do for that exercise.

So let’s say you up to your weight for the dumbbell press and you go from doing eight reps of lighter weight to only 6 reps of a heavier weight.

That’s fine now your next step is to work up to 7 reps then 8 reps with that heavier weight then up your weight again that’s all considered Progressive overload

which is an absolutely necessary Factor for you to fix this problem,, you need to progressively overload your muscles.

Now let’s say one week you’re trying to move up in dumbbell press but you can’t and then you try to move up in bench press and you can’t but then for the Flies you can do five extra pounds.

Perfect as long as you’re moving up in one or two exercises every week even if it’s by 2.5 pounds you’re moving in the right direction.

at the end of the six weeks, you can cycle in some different workouts and exercises but then once again lock those new exercises in for the next 6 weeks don’t change them so you can progressively overload those exercises.

Now as you’re doing this correctly if the weight on the scale isn’t going down but you look better in the mirror then you’re doing the right thing.

Remember we’re after increasing lean body mass and decreasing body fat we’re not after losing weight.

The second approach if you really don’t care temporarily gaining some fat is to create a small calorie Surplus at about fifteen percent above maintenance.

Now it’s very important that you’re keeping all of your calories clean while doing the Surplus in order to minimize fat gain.

You all know what clean foods are it’s about buying them and eating them.

by doing this Surplus approach you’re entirely focused on increasing your lean body mass which is why I like it more if you can tolerate gaining a tiny bit of fat.

it’s going to help you build strength a lot faster it’s also going to translate into faster muscle gains from more nutrients available and more energy during your workouts.

All the while it’s not too high of a surplus to where you’re just going to be gaining massive amounts of fat.

Now here’s the kicker with both of these approaches regardless of which one you do you have to be patient.

muscle isn’t built quite as fast as fat comes off.

So I want you to pick one of these approaches and I want you to really stick to that approach for a year with an Amplified focus on building strength in all of your exercises one by one week by week rep by rep.

if you actually listen to this exact advice I’m telling you this is all you need to turn the whole skinny fat thing around.

I’m willing to bet at the end of the year even if you went the Surplus route any extra fat you accumulated can be cut down within four to six weeks

and under that fat, you’ll find a far more aesthetic body then what you started with.

You’ll go from skinny fat to rip but once again this does require patience. And also remember this advice is only for the people that have already tried to burn the fat by changing their diet.

If you haven’t tried changing your diet to simply cut some fat you may want to try that first.
