Why Do I Look Fat When I Am Lean? How Do I Lose Fat Off Of My Face?
I`ve lost 60 pounds in half a year, from 110kg to 67kg. However, I look like 80gk! I`ve been on a low carb diet and I`ve carry out all the diets you`ve recommended for weight loss. My bodyfat is not that high... about 12 percent. So why is my muscle definition still not obvious!? I`ve been sick of this!
Weight training 3 times per week, cardio 40 minutes twice a week, taking supplements like Hydroxycut. I`ve been on this program for 3 months yet I have only seen microscopic results! When i told my friends that I`m 67kg, they LAUGH!! How come I don`t look like a 67? My dimensions are 43" chest with a 28"waist. How come I look as though I`m those big guys?
Another BIG PROBLEM is my face! I have a puffy face when I was huge and now I still have this problem. Why? Any way to lose fat off of my face? Does Cutting Gel help? Please give me some guidance... I've run out of solutions!
This guy has several questions. He comes across as a mad man that is very fed up. I will answer all of his questions in a narrative format. His first question reads: "My bodyfat is not that high... about 12 percent. So why is my muscle definition still not obvious!?"
Well my angry friend, let me tell you that for the definition to begin to show you will have to break the double digits. A bodyfat percentage of 6-8% would be very revealing. This is a great example of why body fat tests do not mean anything. Use the mirror ,it does not lie. I may look great at 12% and you may look like garbage. I think that 12% is heavy either way you look at it especially if you are trying to see definition. So to answer your question stating why your definition is still not obvious, I have to tell you that you are not lean yet. Your definition is there it is just hidden under a nice comfortable layer of water and fat. Lets look at your second question or statement rather.
You claim to do "cardio 40 minutes, twice a week..."
This will most certainly help you shed some fat. Your major malfunction is that you are not doing enough cardio. I mean, come on, if you are trying to cut up you need to bust out the cardio. Try to do 30 minutes of intense cardio 5-6 times a week and I bet that you will see results. You also claim to be taking supplements like MuscleTech Hydroxycut.
Those type of ephedra-based supplements will help you boost your metabolic environment. You need to do something with the energy that they give you or the only thing that you will experience is a little speed trip. You should be timing your Hydroxycut according to your cardio and training schedule. Just because you are taking this supplement does not mean anything. I know plenty of obese people that take similar supplements. Stick to your cardio, there is still no magic pill out there.
Your next comment cracks me up. You say "I`ve been on this program for 3 months yet I have only seen microscopic results!" Well that is a given! You are doing microscopic things, besides three months is nothing when you look at the whole spectrum. Keep working but work harder, you will get there. I have been bodybuilding since the age of 16 and I am still not where I want to be, actually I am far from it.
You describe your dimensions by stating that you have a 43" chest and a 28" waist. Those measurements are awesome! I do not know who is whacked out here but either your friends are blind or you are lying. Anyone with a 28" waist will not be mistaken for a fat guy, especially if he sports a 43" chest on top of it. You claim to weigh about 145-150 pounds, if this is true you are almost an identical version of me. I have similar measurements and weight but my friends do not tease me. My body fat stays at around 6-7% and I am 5'1". For you to be considered fat you must be like 4 feet tall. The pieces of the puzzle just do not fit. Your next question was hilarious. You say: "Any way to lose fat off of my face? Does Cutting Gel help?"
Brother if you are thinking of rubbing Cutting Gel on your face, you are whacked out. This is the funniest FAQ ever. I am not trying to put you down my man, but come on. Look you have to stop looking for the easy way out and enjoy your journey to your new physique. You must diet for shredding, complete your cardiovascular training, train with weights, rest, and supplement properly. Work hard for what you want because the people that have what you want have paid their dues a long time ago. Good luck and be positive-cheer up!
