Hello guys and welcome back on another “Skinny Fat” article. If you’re coming from our latest “Skinny Fat: Everything You Need to Know” news : you’re now a pro (and if you haven’t read it yet: you should check it out!). One thing we didn’t share with you though was tips to fix this situation.
As promised, we gathered all the knowledge of the internet to resume it here as quick and easy as possible. Ready? 3, 2, 1, let’s go:
Being skinny fat is not a curse. It has very specific causes and very specific solutions (as we mention in our latest article, take 5 minutes to read it and come back after if it’s not already done!). The key to success : you need to add muscle and reduce your body fat percentage. Easy right?
3 things you shouldn’t do to get rid of your skinny fat:
Severe calories restriction (you will only have a quick muscle loss)
Doing large amounts of cardio (you will only accelerate muscle loss and will not increase fat loss)
Doing no effective resistance training (resistance training is the most effective way to maintain or build muscle mass while losing fat)
3 things you should do to get rid of it:
Adopt a balanced diet (duh!)
Move that booty (get your heart rate up for 30 minutes and don’t reap the benefits by doing more than that)
Lift that weights (strength training will increase your muscle mass and help to decrease skinny fat. Don’t forget to take your protein, it will help in the process!)
It all goes back to understanding your body composition and tracking every data (you can use a smart body scale to do it).
Even if it’s little bit by little bit: be proud of you. One step at a time!
