Skinny Fat - [ski-nee-fat] - adj. 1. A term coined in the fitness industry to describe the physique of one who is both skinny and fat at the same time.
2. To have the frame and/or dimensions of what is considered "skinny" in modern society, despite the fact that your body is comprised mainly of fat, with little muscle to show.
3. To look great in a sweater, but transform into a sh*tbomb in a bikini.
Example - 1. Yo check out the muffin top on that girl in the size 2 jeans...straight up skinny fat, son!
2. See photo below:
Now being skinny fat isn't the worst thing in the world. There are certainly worse positions to be in, like just being fat. I mean, you can still wear the top fashions, the skinny jeans and the sexy heels, and many people are content with this, which is completely fine. But for those who strive for more, for those who know what it's like to feel hot on the dance floor until a guy starts dancing with you, only to get a handful of love handle, for those who want the show to START once beach time comes, as opposed to end, for those who felt great about themselves prior to reading this blog post, but now feel insecure because of assholes like me who write about this stuff, please read on...
So how do you go from being skinny fat to just being skinny? Well if you think about it, being skinny fat, when broken down into science, is no different than being fat, because your body fat percentage is higher than normal, with no significant muscle build. Therefore, the answer is, BUILD MUSCLE. Running is great for cardio and overall health, but running alone won't help you build much muscle, and a non-muscular body won't burn as many calories day-to-day as a muscular body. Resistance training, core strengthening and weight training should be added to your routine. Core strengthening and muscle building exercises like the plank, sit-ups, pushups, boxing, yoga, pilates, medicine ball training, bosu and stability ball training, resistance band training and weight lifting. These types of exercises, coupled with a diet high in protein, are what will get you that lean, tone and skinny (minus the "fat") look. Now girls, I know you're thinking to yourselves, "Well, I don't want to lift weights and build muscle because I don't want to get huge and bulky". Listen, guys lift hundreds and hundreds of pounds for hours on end, grunt it out at the gym, drink protein shakes and eat endless cans of tuna to get bulky muscles. If you lift little 5 pound weights for a few reps, you won't get overly jacked, I promise.
So what are you waiting for? Get your skinny fat ass off the couch and get to work!

"I started the Body Jakeover initially to lose a few pounds before my birthday. I could see results within just two weeks! My clothes fit better and I was able to fit clothes I hadn't worn since college. People were noticing my new figure and that was exciting. It gave me a new confidence."

"After a month of the Body Jakeover workouts on my butt and thighs, I have to say I am impressed with my results. My butt is TIGHT and my thighs are RIGHT! Thanks Jake!"
~ Janice M.
"In the course of a month and a half, I lost a whole pant size by following Jake's nutritional guidelines. Usually, I would go on crash diets and then just gain the weight back, but this is definitely a lifestyle change and not a crash diet. Thanks for all your help Jake!"
