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 Potbelly (the quintessential skinny fat look) 

The Condition: You've been on a liquid diet since you were 21 and now you're skinny everywhere else except for the massively bulbous heap that is your core. Dr. Cardone labels this one of the worst kinds of skinny fat because it leads to a high risk of health complications and could contribute to an early death. Yikes.  Cisco's Solution: Despite the depressing diagnosis, shedding your skinny fat physique is simple because it's largely diet related. Skinny everywhere else means you have a fast metabolism, so "increase your intake of vegetables, fruits, lean sources of protein and complex carbohydrates while eliminating sugary foods, processed foods, most juices and anything that comes in a wrapper." Add regular cardio work and a steady routine of body resistance to your weekly workload and you'll see results even faster.  NEXT: The Assman
