The Skinny Fat Epidemic

Our experts identify the five ways a thin man can be fat and share how to lose the excess flab.

The Fat Man Mask 

The Condition: Due to the fat you store in your otherwise handsome mug, you look like a chipmunk who doesn’t swallow, and trust us, that’s not a popular party trick. For some, this is the last place you lose weight, (just ask Jonnah Hill), forcing the laziest and most resourceful among us to employ creative shaving techniques in order to construct the illusion of a jawline.  Cisco’s Solution: “My face is the first place I lose it from. For some it's the last. Just know it will come as long as you get lean enough. Be consistent with the aerobic work and the overall body fat percentage comes down, the face will come along with it. That said, this isn't always a good thing. When Lance Armstrong was winning the Tour de France he had a skeletor look. He was 32 and could have passed for 42. When my body fat percentage drops below 7 percent I look many years older. The chubby face isn't necessarily that bad.”  NEXT: The Potbelly
