I know this is more like a question for /fit/, but how do you all stay so slim and slender?
>Decide to lose weight so that I can actually fit into my skinnies without being one of those fatsos-in-denial who try to fit into clothes for thinner people
>Cut 500 daily calories
>Start doing cardio and lifting, because internet told me lifting also helps lose weight and is just as important as cardio
About three months later...
>Thighs are huge from squats, because I'm building muscle without losing fat. They jiggle for days on end when I slap them
>Look even worse in skinny jeans, especially because fat thighs are disproportionate to lean calves
Jesus Christ, what did I do to myself?
/fit/ guys keep telling me that you shouldn't worry about "getting too big" when lifting because it takes effort to get big and it isn't something that accidentally happens when you're not paying attention.
Muscle increases your BMR so you burn more calories, and I don't want to just turn into a smaller skinnyfat person by losing weight without retaining more lean weight than fat, so I guess I just have to lift in a way that doesn't fuck my body up even more, and maybe level off the weight I lift with some exercises, rather than continuing to increase it.
Also, I guess I'm inconsistent with my caloric restriction, I gotta be more disciplined on that.
you should be jiggling less if you're gaining muscle.

Dog. You're taking too much direct advice from forums/imageboards.
What is it that YOU want?
Seems as if your priorities are conflicting. At least you're trying to hone your ideas into a sharp lifestyle.
My dog what is your goal in general?
Well 3 weeks ago I was 198lbs and looked fat as shit.
Right now I'm 178lbs, still look fat but dropped sizes and a ton shit of clothes I stop wearing fit me now, and I'm still losing weight.
All I'm doing is run 6 miles a day and stopped eating fast food.
>mfw I can eat 50 quesaritos from taco bell
>mfw I doesn't affect me in the slightest
>mfw I have an excellent metabolism

Dude, just do cardio if you want a wiry body
if you're american, go into your local doctor and get an adderall Rx for ADD. it will destroy your appetite, make you much more talkative, quicker thinking, better at concentrating.
basically a whole pill that combats autism and makes your body /fa/
I pledge my hunger
to the plate
of the united crepes of america
and to the genetics
because I can't stand.
under my fork
with cellulite and heart disease for all

If such a world existed...
Original retail was $240ish at Adidas flagships and Kith sometime last year (now sold out obviously.) Flight Club has a listing for $325 though I'm sure you could find it for far lower (~200) if you looked.
Wait, would biking or running make my calves bigger/chunkier? I want to start doing cardio to tighten the little muscle that I have in my legs. I'm just afraid biking or running/jogging would make my calves wide or distorted...I've seen it before and it looks like fucking shit
I'm like 126lbs, 5'9 and I'm mostly legs (short chest)
I have them in patent leather which was easily one of the worst decisions I've made in my life though they are absolutely great for parties and getting numbers since girls will initiate conversation with you about them.
I closed my lips around the end of the Dragonite's throbbing penis and started sucking. This made the Pokemon howl in pleasure as he held onto my head. I continued to suck while moving his dick farther and farther into my mouth, until I couldn't get in in any deeper. I kept up the sucking motions while using my tounge to mop up the precum that was oozing out of his cock. I decided that it was time. I moved his member about halfway out of my mouth, and picked up the pace of my sucking and licking. Feeling the Dragonite's convulsions and hearing his moans, I moved back to the head while sucking even harder. Soon enough, he let out a loud howl. Cum shot out of his member all around my mouth and down my throat. I swallowed as much as I could and slipped my mouth off his softening dick. An extra spurt of semen splashed all over my face as I looked up at him lovingly. I stood up and kissed him once more. "Dragonite...I love you..." I whispered. He responded by licking some of the cum off my face, and seemed to giggle. He took one paw and gathered the rest of the semen onto it. Laying down on his back, he lifter up his legs to reveal his tight tailhole.
Walking down stairs and in crowded places (i.e. school, subway, parties) is the ultimate pain, but, shoes are meant to be worn and I did pay ~250 for them.
Mind you, they're not an everyday shoe. Probably bring them out once every 2 months when flyknits and NBs get boring.
LOL. I was in the thread that idea was posted. One guy said "hehe let's make this a meme" everyone else said you were an autist. Seriously give it up faggot or kill yourself, you should listen to what the majority says, not just you're neckbeard clique.
Oh, I see. Thanks for the feedback. I'll be sure to keep this in mind! They're definitely awesome shoes I wouldn't mind copping once I have the money. I'm sure they're all the more special wearing them every once in a while rather than abusing the shit out of them.
I run half an our three days a week, right after my lifting. Originally, I tried to run at least 15 minutes every non-lifting day, too, but I took on more hours at work and ain't no one got time for that no more.
But, yeah, I'm doing Stronglifts, which has squats every lifting day, so maybe I'll just squat every other lifting day from now on.
>Not spending 3.5 hours each day lifting tiny dumbells every day to give you an ottermode physique, to the detriment of school, work, making friends and dating, or doing something that would actually give you an ottermode physique
I can't even imagine what you fill your day with. All that stupid stuff I mentioned that wasn't lifting dumbells?
Diet man. It ain't hard. Shit, go half a day without eating. Eat once a day see if your ass doesn't lose weight. Losing weight literally takes no skill. Just take in less calories than you expend. The whole "slow metabolism" when fasting thing is exaggerated. I've gone an entire day without eating and visibly lost weight. It's not the healthiest way but it is one of the fastest.
Its because you eat like shit. Your muscles should be burning off the fat and improving your metabolism but you've never heard of a fucking salad so youre just going to look strongfat forever enjoy
>Copious coffee and water
>No soft drinks/sugary drinks
>Walk quite a lot
>Only alcohol being straight vodka or gin
>Optionally smoke cigarettes, but then you will smell bad to a wide range of people, but on the plus you will look cooler
My two cents for slimming:
>Cardio (jogging, and then sprinting if you get into it)
>Fasting (It cleanses your body from toxins and is generally healthy and recommended as long as you have a meal/eat some point in the day. Kudos to those practicing Ramadan right now, actually.)
>Eat more than one kind of food on your plate. Always have something like vegetables with your main course (if you're a meal person). Don't pig out to the same shit over and over again.
>"Avoid outside food or pretty much any kind of junk food" said a gazillion people already. While there are a ton of faggots who have a high metabolism, this will be necessary for you since your metabolism doesn't seem to be doing you any justice.
>Sleep more. Sleep affects your metabolism if you don't get enough of it. Then again, you have your blessed group of faggots.
>Watch your salt/sodium intake and drink more water. Other than weight loss, water retention will make you look all the more fatter.
I hope I was able to help.
Well, a poor diet or unhealthy diet will be composed of bad ingredients that your body blocks out or doesn't absorb properly, like HFS (high fructose syrup), etc. Intermittent fasting will help empty your system of those unhelpful components found it bad foods. Which leads me to the next thing, cravings. Fasting is great for helping you develop different cravings so that you're able to give your body a different variety of food. Not everyone is a rich urban nomad who is dining at different five star restaurants every other day, so the development of different cravings or food curiosities will help you open up to healthier and more natural options. I say this from personal experience. I'm naturally skinny, but I have friends that have positively benefited from fasting. Your colon is also heavily cleansed from from fasting because it's not infested with that disgusting shit a lot of people have in their diets...believe me a lot of the food that doesn't seem bad on the outside is pretty disgusting on what it does to your insides, aside from fat -- acid reflux, increase of candida fungus, etc.
Also wanted to mention that fasting is extremely beneficial for better psychological health and overall better mental stability. It calms you down and brings your state of thinking at peace once you know how to maintain your way of eating.
It doesn't necessarily mean that you have to go on some strict ass regimen, since eating things you like is sometimes more healthy (mentally) to you than depriving yourself from them, but consider natural foods here and there along with fasting. Lastly, fasting is great for reducing a risk cancerous diseases and diabetes since your body is not consistently clogged with sugars and copious amounts of salt.
In a nutshell, if healthy food/exercise isn't helping you, go get a fucking MRI for your pituitary gland, because something is going wrong with either your hormones, or simply your genetics.
At that weight and height, you probably look like a skeleton, unless that's all fat and very little muscle, which then you look squishy. I am only 140 at 5'8" w/ 10% BF and I feel really skinny.
Also, calves are the kind of muscle that are hard to put size on. A lot of it is genetics. But running 4-5 times a week will make your calves trim and defined, not large. I've been running for 5 years now and my calves look like they were sculpted by Michelangelo.
Man trust me from someone that's been there. You're trying to compromise b/w being /fa/ and /fit/ but you're just going to end up neither. You should either commit to not doing squats or doing them.
this is actually disturbing
this is an actual good bod
Just do sprints man. That's all I do and these are mine
what is feminine about not wanting to look like a perpetually angry, roided up monkey?
skinny is the best possible look for men and no, it doesnt have any practical downsides
get over it, fatass
>skinny is the best possible look for men
Lol this is what twinks actually believe. You probably look like some sickly dork and yet you're proud of it lol. Have fun getting no respect from anyone.
>mfw valued member of my community
it's not all of western society, it's just /fa/. bunch ofssocially stunted betamales never able to have as much testosterone as the guys who bullied them their whole lives, and started to fetishize the androgynous aesthetic seen occasionally in male models, what was temporarily known as "metrosexual" in pop culture, overcompensating for their ladyboy existences by insisting that their weakling frames are what will allow them to reproduce, or altogether swearing off women because millennials have heavily replaced libido with porn addiction
well that and not having a presence
that demands respect from both genders
now am i saying you need to go all out BB mode?
no, but you shouldnt also look like a malnourished Ethiopian child.
as a man you need to have a mans body
and the fact of the matter is that there
wasnt, if any men in the older generations
that looked like their body physique could be mistakened for a young womans
it seems ever since feminism started
that simply BEING a man is almost criminal nowadays
and even the simple natural act of doing, behaving and even looking like a man has been villianized and scrutinized to the point where boys in there late teens have eating disorders which either makes them fat and unattractive or the opposite which is a "hungry skeleton" look or malnourished look that teen boys think will get them everything. except respect..
the only ppl that like that look is teeny bopper grillz and thats because its been hardwired into them because of the media and its portrayal of boybands
after that most women figure out that they want someone that has some sort of ability of protecting them not only financially but ALSO physically
food for thought i guess
i hate these fucking threads.
cuz theres retards from /fit/
but theres also skinny retards from /fa/
just be cool with everyone
/fit/ dudes needa stop with that whole "omg ur not healthy ur sick, that doesnt look gud ,girls dont like u omg"
and skinny boys needa stop calling anyone whos remotely built fat!
personally I barely eat anything at all but I workout until I'm tired (which doesn't take long) so I am quite slim but getting some definition
Pretty much, this.
Different internet groups create their own exclusive definitions of "good-looking" and act like anyone not within these narrow ranges is gross.
Not that I'm a total relativist. There certain healthy adiposity range, and being too fat (or too skinny, but most people are too fat) is objectively unhealthy.
But if you're normal BMI and BWR, you're probably fine, even if you aren't good by a given sub-pit of an Japanese-cartoon picture forum's standards.
what is it about /fa/ that attracts super skinny people anyways?
what makes them more attracted to fashion than the fatties?
as a 6' 125-130l it was literally the fact normal american clothes would never fit me
So tell me if I got this thread right.
How to be /fa/:
Don't eat like shit
Eat to the point where you are somewhat skinny
Do a fuckload of upper body calisthenics
opt: Coffee and Cigs
Do I got this all right? is this the key to having a /fa/ body?
Tons of water too.
The coffee and cigarettes thing is bullshit though. Sure you may look cool for the 10 minutes you are smoking but afterwards you smell like shit, ruin your clothes, and stain your teeth. Likewise with coffee, you stain the fuck out of your teeth long term. I guess being at coffee shops is cool and cigarettes also suppress your appetite. But is it worth it having fucked up lungs (preventing your from doing your exercises to look /fa/ in the first place) and having to spend $500 to get your teeth whitened (shit is painful)?
Fuck dude you can't just do certain exercises and expect to see results.
Ab workouts won't give you abs, you have to lower your overall body fat percentage and preferably be on a caloric deficit.
Everybody has abs, it's a vital part of the human body, all you can do is develop muscle in that area (eat protein, exercise) and lower your bf%.
Spot reduction is a myth too, you have to do cardio to lower bf% and eat less fatty foods.
>you can't just do certain exercises and expect to see results
> all you can do is develop muscle in that area (eat protein, exercise)
So what exactly do I do ? I'm auschwitz mode alredy, do you think I need to lose bf ?
>lose body fat
Man you need to fucking bulk, go to /fit/ and look at the sticky.
Calories: TDEE + 500 calories (Google TDEE).
Protein: 1+ grams per lb. bodyweight.
Or double your weight in kg's and get that number of protein.
Cut after you've been through your bulk and you'll be good.
So I need 3k calories and 120 grams of protein to maintain and work out ?
Assuming you worked it out correctly, 3k calories is what you need to put on weight and that's the protein you need to build some muscle.
To help track calories, use the app 'myfitnesspal', all you need to do is scan a barcode of food and it gives you all the details and adds up what you ate for the day, saves it too so you can quickly add it.
Best of luck man, I weigh less than you I'm not trying to put you down but your body isn't nice at the moment, it's the arms.
