The Straight Skinny on Dietary Fat The Health and Fitness “F Word” Fat is a dirty word in the fitness world. Gyms across the world are full of hardworking individuals doing their best to. Fat composition is just one of many ways we attempt to measure the other, more important F-word — fitness. However, being fit is about way more than being lean: It includes strength, power, speed, agility, endurance, balance, flexibility and much, much more.

After doing my research, it all made sense. Fat is necessary in our diets. They provide essential fatty acids, keep our skin soft, deliver fat-soluble vitamins, fuel our brains and helps fill us up and keep us satisfied. So, let’s start by looking at the history of this low-fat fad.

In 1977, all Americans were recommended to follow a low-fat. The term “skinny fat” is often used to describe someone who looks skinny on initial investigation, i.e the limbs and shoulder are thin and frail, but the torso area is fat. Other names are “beer belly”, “dad bod” the list is endless.

Skinny Fat Calories For Option 1 – Cutting First. If you have more fat to lose than muscle (think Russel Brand in the picture from the intro), you’re going to want to cut first.While you could bulk (be in a caloric surplus) first, you might put on a bit more fat than you would like and this would cause you to have to cut for an extended period of time in the future. Finally, and most dire of all, being skinny fat could shorten your life. A study published December 2015 in the Annals of Internal Medicine involving more than 15,000 people found men with normal-weight central obesity had two times the mortality rate of those with BMIs that qualified as overweight or obese.

Women with normal-weight central obesity had a higher mortality risk as wel. You become skinny fat when you have poorly developed muscles and quite a bit of body fat. For guys I would say that a body fat percentage of 20-25% would be the skinny fat “sweet spot” and for girls somewhere around 30-35% body fat. So you are not really fat, fat, but you are definitely not lean either.

The medical term for those who are considered skinny fat is “metabolically obese normal weight” or “MONW”. This is classified when an individual is over their fat range but under in lean muscle, meaning there is not enough muscle to fat ratio. On the outside, they look thin and healthy, but internally, their body composition is unbalanced.

The Bottom Line For “Skinny Fat” Guys. If you have that skinny fat body type, don’t just take someone’s black and white recommendation that you should “definitely” bulk or “definitely” cut. There is no such thing as one absolute “skinny fat workout” or “skinny fat nutrition plan” for everyone, and the best approach. Guys who have been described as skinny-fat might not know whether to cut weight or bulk up when they want to gain muscle.

They can do both at the same time by culking here’s how.

List of related literature:

Based on the findings by Blair and colleagues (see Blair & Leermakers, Chapter 13, this volume) suggesting that fitness rather than fatness modifies risk, nondieting advocates suggest that increased fitness rather than decreased weight should be the principal means to improve health (Gaesser, 1999).

Regardless, monitoring changes in fat depths during changes in overall body condition may be a useful and objective adjunct to the subjective appraisal of BCS which is likely to change at a slower rate in fatter animals (Dugdale et al 2010).

The fact that I work with people with ED across the weight spectrum, as well as with people of all weights who are thriving and happy, has allowed me to test the hypothesis that fat is a proxy for ill health, depression, and overeating.

Many public health scholars routinely provide an oversimplified message regarding the relationship between weight and health, clearly communicating the idea that to be overweight or obese inherently translates to being ill or on the verge of illness.

This runs counter to folk wisdom, which suggests that fat acceptance leads to lazy, complacent, irresponsible, and fat-inducing behaviors; and that fat shaming is the key to motivating others (or even ourselves) to lose weight and be healthy.

  • I hear all this advice bad sadly I can’t do most of it until I get a kidney transplant…

    I am an interesting case. Not only do I have PCOS (diagnosed when I gained 3 sizes in half a year and went to my Gyn in 2009) after suffering 3 abdominal abscesses but I also have severe sleep apnea and haven’t gotten good sleep since 2018 (hardly get REM sleep and was told I probably have replenished my hunger hormones in my brain (Ghrelin and Leptin) and now am at my heaviest ever but ANOTHER wrench in my story is that I have no kidneys and am on hemodialysis 3 times a week and on Prednisone. How can I lose weight with all this against me? The problem with being on a dialysis diet is that I cannot have whole wheat, cannot have whole grains, cannot have much dairy or creamy things. I cannot have anything with more than low potassium in it. Kidneys normally excrete excess potassium and phosphorus and sodium and fluid but without kidneys you have to control your intake and a lot of healthy foods have those things. It makes it hard to eat a typically healthy diet. I cannot have nuts of legumes or oranges or grapefruit. Some foods like Starfruit will even kill me and grapefruit will counteract with very important medications. I take specialized Vitamin D because without kidneys my body is missing a particular link in making vitamin D out of being in the sun. Also, I must wear sunscreen because my medication isn’t friendly with the sun.

  • I just love Thomas’ Videos and how he aims to help others which is amazing. Keto rarely makes you feel hungry. I am having great results.

  • God gives me that umph, He is my foundation. My whole life changed bc of Him. The KETO diet came later and all of those benefits are true it was great

  • this is my first time ever doing a proper workout so let’s see:)
    DAY 1: i couldn’t do first three exercices properly and almost died but i think that’s normal?
    DAY 2: it was kinda better. didn’t get tired as much and didn’t almost die. could do those exercises better too.
    DAY 3:

  • Love Thomas to bits…for his sincerity and GENUINE health advise that he always backs up with science and proof.

    He doesn’t let his heart rule his head or his head rule his heart but maintains consistency and accuracy with no other agenda except to save lives and help people change their ways of eating for the better.

    I am a Muslim and in Islam it is recommended to fast Mondays and Thursdays for 1. spirtual reasons 2. health benefits.

    The fasts in Islam are no eating or drinking straight before the arrival of the morning pray and prostration to God until sunset.

    I never really understood the health benefits of fasting until I began to listen to Thomas…amazing what I learned thank you so much Thomas.

    May God bless Thomas and guide him and his family. Ameen.

  • This man saved my life. The information he provided on YouTube changed the direction of my life for the best. Good health feels amazing.

  • I find most “interviewers” frustrating as the questions they pose are so wasteful. But you, Naomi, always ask the most pertinent questions. So it’s always a pleasure to invest a little time in you. However, one question I would have asked and that is if Thomas fasts 24 hours twice per week then what is his eating regime the rest of the time. Great interview though, Naomi

  • Can’t argue the fact that fasting and a keto diet work for him. I have a hard time planning what to eat but he is very motivating. Good video. Thanks

  • Thanks so much for this video! I had been pre-diabetic until this plan. I am not pre-diabetic anymore! My doctor is curious about the plan, since I told her about it. She was impressed because my bloodwork changed so drastically in three months, and I lost 20 pounds in the same period. I can refer her to your video for the basic ideas in the book. Love your channel and thanks again.

  • Great interview. Lots of information however I take issue with the suggestion of using palm oil. We need to leave this oil in the past and allow the Orangutans to live in peace.

  • Question for @Rachel Aust and other viewers: does any of you have cross diagnosis, such us PCOS and low thyroid leves? How did you adjust your diets? There are so many different infos on what to eat in case of low thyroid, but some food is not recommened for PCOS and vice versa, so it’s confusing. Which foods do you eat in such case?
    Plus @Rachel, thank you a lot for your videos. You give valuable info and courage!

  • Can 5 minutes really get me a flat stomach in 7 days?
    Edit; guys I’m going to do this 4 times a day because I don’t think 5 mins will work. I do it twice in the morning and another two later on

  • By using fibroids solution, results can be seen immediately. All my symptoms was gone away in just Four weeks. On top of that, there were no signs of my big.2 centimetres and 8.5 centimetres fibroids.. I Google this plan last month, name is Hαmjot Sυnu

  • Can we get the written out list of supplements because I’ve never heard of some of those you mentioned. Please help the visual learners like myself lol.

  • Today I did my first murph. It took me 2 hours.
    I did 60 pullups, 40 chinups
    80 regular pushups, 40 wide, 40 archer, 20 pike, and 20 diamond.
    200 regular squats, 100 lunges with each leg.
    It took very long to complete it because of the pullups, the rest of the exercises were a lot easier. I prioritized technic too and that definitely contributed to my delay.

    Ill try to do this 3 times a week for the next month.

  • I am going to be doing this workout and i will hopefully see some changes. ( I won’t drink sugary drinks or juice, i will only drink water) I’m starting now! Wish me luck!

    *Day 1*: Just finished doing the workout twice. I really felt the burn and that’s good! I only drank water and ate a lot of healthy food and only a little treat. I loved doing this and i can’t wait to do it again tomorrow!

  • Thanks for these tips and advice….
    But these would have been impossible if i didn’t choose this option…
    Hope it does help others to lose weight…

  • I’m going to start this workout today.
    Gonna do this workout twice a day to get the results within a week.

  • Thank you for your awesome review on YouTube which I also so on Amazon. I subscribed because you sound like you have a lot of practical insight that I can learn from! I love Philosophy, especially if it can be applied in my life to improve the quality of my life and mind.

  • I went to obgyne last december. And she just took my bp, look at my weight and my dark knucles. Then says i have pcos. It’s just so weird. She gave me 7days med to have menstruation and 6month pills. Just that?

  • Powerful info! Thank you so much for sharing this! When working with PCOS patients, I’ll recommend intermittent fasting as part of their protocol.

  • Those band exercises make perfect sense, cause most people have a day job, and while eating the 1,500 calorie diet for a few months, most don’t wanna do intense aerobics and pump heavyweights.

  • Hey guys, I’m 15 and honestly I have a skinny body but my stomach looks like a pregnant. I was searching about an effective workout and I tried a lot but I didn’t continue to the end of the required duration. But now after the motivation I got from the comments ‘fingers crossed ����’ I’ll continue. I started on Aug 21 and I decided to share my progress with you so you get motivated and encouraged.

    Actually I am 47.5 kg now, and the part of my stomach that I want to change is 77.5 cm. We’ll see how much weight will I lose, and how my stomach will look like after this workout:))) I am so excited������

    ✨Day 1: I did the workout twice. It wasn’t so hard, but I did modification for the second exercise. My stomach was hurting a little bit but It’s done��
    ✨Day 2: It was a bit challenging and sweaty today ��. I felt the burn in my abs. I feel that I‘ll see nice results at the end. I did 2 sets today as well!

  • He’s so right, trying to exercise and things get in the way. But, I know if I keep exercising those things will move outta the way.

  • Hello, first time on your channel:) I was diagnosed today with PCOS. So I am now doing more research to understand all the information that is out here. my questions is what does the plastic and the perfumes have to do with PCOS? (confused girl here) lol

    •BEFORE• left: 53cm right: 52cm

    day 1: ✅

    Day 1(21 August): I did it once without any modifications..I felt just a lil sore belly.

    Day2:yes I did it my belly was painful while I was doing it..I wanna do it again..


  • I have been doing this exercise since 2days but the last one balancing on arms is being difficult for me and I can’t even hold it for 2 second so is there any other exercise I can do instead of that one?
    Plz reply

  • I myself a guy and i dont know if I have loose skin or just fat i was overweight from 13 to 16,I lost my weight in a horrible diet after that i noticed (especially my lower body ) that i see and feel my skin or fat still not sure, to be jiggly and super soft but its not thin! Now at 20,I’ve been working out with heavy weights for 2 years built a lot of muscle since that time I still have the same issue
    I still dont know how to fix it! Still trying tho,if u have any idea share please.

  • Has anyone got all test done blood work, transvaginal ultrasound etc.. & they did not have PCOS or hormonal imbalance but, still have hirustism aka (abnormal hair growth)?

  • This acne guide AcneCureOnline. Com is very useful for my daughter that is why she definitely love it. We have already expended a hefty amount of money trying various acne cures for over a year now but not one of them had worked. I am thankful that we`ve found out this guide. We observed an apparent distinction within a couple of days and within a few weeks her acne had cleared up.

  • So, I’m here, I weigh around 61 kg

  • I think to lead a relatively “normal” life.
    A male looks more like the dude on the left side of this thumbnail than Jeff does.
    Its just not realistic. Life is stressful. Very stressful. It shouldn’t BE this stressful but it is.
    There is no WAR to prepare our bodies for.
    No big holy fight to be conditioned for.
    Its just not worth this much effort.
    These are by far the best and most informative videos though. And you cant go far wrong than listening to Jeff.

    But lets get real here….
    your an unskilled labourer. Your up in the early hours in the morning. You do a physical job with no real strength beneficial movements. Just repetitive joint straining that tires you out and makes you sore. you have family commitments and annoying bosses. Social commitments. Bills to pay. Plans to make.

    And im gunna count my calories and fit 3/4 workouts around a 40 hour week? AND get 8 hours sleep?

    My hats truly off for people who manage it.
    But im just afraid looking like bruce lee isn’t worth that much effort. I’d rather look like bruce willis, not break my back and eat, drink and smoke till I drop ��

  • Man, this is so interesting. Almost perfect timing for this video to come out, lately I’ve realized I’m SO CARB DEPENDENT! High Carb/High Protein/Low fat pretty much the last 6 months, but EVERYTIME I eat a big meal I feel lethargic afterwards, now im realizing it’s all the carbs in eating. Now I need to try going High Fat/High Protein/Low carb. But how do I get the 3,500 calories I need everyday to bulk up ��

  • i’m a bit sad these days so i decided to do this workout as long as i want to (just to give myself energy and confidence boost!)
    before: 57 cm [(one) upper thigh]
    52 cm [(one) middle thigh]
    95 cm [both thighs]
    also i am not a native english speaker so if i have any mistakes in my comment you can!politely! correct me ������♥️

    thanks everyone for your likes! it keeps me motivated ��

  • great vid. i’ll be sharing it. what do you think about going keto? i’ve lost 60 lbs with a ketogenic diet and using keto os which made going keto a lot easier for me. I love to hear your opinion on a keto diet and the keto os supplement they add ketones right to your bloodstream within 60 minutes of drinking them. ohio.drinkyoursample com has more info on the sup i have been using.

  • I am suffering from pcos since 4 years.
    And i am going to treat with homeopathy.

  • sou brasileira fui tentar fazer o desafio da chloe ting mais n consegui mais achei o da lilly já é meu 2 dia fazendo,na verdade 3 porem n fiz no 2 dia��‍♀️ já estou vendo resultados��

  • Hi…I am a 55 yr old woman with autoimmune liver disease and hypothyroidism. I went on a keto diet for 6 weeks and only lost 4 lbs. I remember doing Atkins in my mid-30s and getting good I was not only disappointed but bewildered as well. BTW…I get about 5 hrs of exercise/week. I am waiting for your book at the library..but what the heck?! Last year I did the Whole 30 and then tried intermittent fasting…same results. I don’t know what to do now. Any suggestions? Also, even when I did the Atkins, I didn’t really go into ketosis very much according to the strips.

  • I’m going to do this everyday for a week or more. I’m doing this along with 2 other thigh workouts.

    Day 1A little bit hard and I’m very sore.
    Day 2It was easier than yesterday. Still no changes obviously.
    Day 3I’m a bit less sore. I almost forgot to do it today. It’s gotten easier.
    Day 4A lot easier today. I feel like I could do this in my sleep. I’m also not as sore.
    Day 5Slowly starting to notice my stomach become tighter. It is so easy for me now.
    Day 6I have a flat stomach. No abs yet. I’ll do this for a bit longer than a week and update you.
    Day 7-
    Day 8-
    Day 9-

  • This is, by far, the most cliché generic fitness video that’s ever been made. Right down to the obvious voice actor and the stock footage of a doctor. As for your muscles growing after a workout it’s not gains it’s congestion, which anyone who works out knows full well. I was totally expecting the last minute of your video to be a call to action where you’d sell us your “program” of something like that. I couldn’t stop laughing.

  • Did You Know Hormonal Imbalances Are Behind Every Chronic Illness?

  • Can’t believe how much has changed in just 2months. I am more in control of my PCOS, my endometriosis flares have got better and slowly my weight is dropping making things easier to manage… Dr. Richard herbal product is really more of better than all of what medical practitioners have been prescribing for me…am well so happy for purchasing his herbs…it’s best if you are facing any issues of ovarian syndrome and Infertility you should try reaching out to him as I did on Whatsapp or probably via email… Here is his WhatsApp number +2348129605087

  • Hello.i’m 17 and i don’t have any pcos symptoms. My weight is normal 60 kg (170cm) my periods are regular and i don’t have unwanted hair (i’m Arabic so yes i’m hairy but it’s not like a beird) but my mother have pcos ( i learned that pcos is genetic ) my sister is 25 she doesn’t have it… mother had me naturally without any pill not like my sister.. do you think me or my sister have the heighter chance of getting pcos?… and is there a specific age for pcos?. and how can i prevent it?

  • I went through years and years of PCOS with not one doc suggesting I get tested, till my sis went through med school and told me my symptoms added up. I feel so annoyed that so many docs are treating people without educating themselves. Understanding what I was going through helped me look up ways to feel better without meds. Thank you for sharing your experience!

  • Hi Rachel, during the 2 year duration when you were implementing the changes, did you take hormonal supplements few months in the year to induce the period when you were not naturally getting it?

  • I’m on Keto but my weight doesn’t come off. I’m testing keystones with the Keto strips. It shows “ trace” levels. I am not sure what I’m doing wrong that I have “trace” ketones not a higher level. I eat meets fats eggs fish oils. The carbs are coming from green veggies. I eat a small tomato few times a week. This is the only thing that isn’t green.
    What else can I do?

  • everyone is in quarantine while i went back to school 5 months ago lol
    i’m in high school now (10th grade) so i got tons of homework but i’m hoping i’ll have time to do this! it looks super fun

  • Thank you so much for all of the information. I’ve had PCOS for 15 years (diagnosed at 16) but truly just started struggling with all of the awful symptoms (weight gain, mood imbalance, unwanted hair, loss of hair, etc) the past few years. I was very lucky that my only symptom before was irregular periods and yet I was still able to conceive my beautiful children. I am sure nursing school and two kids have a lot to do with that haha. I am not a fan of birth control or medications. I really am struggling with finding what works for my body in a natural holistic way. You were very informative and I will be checking out your other PCOS videos.

  • His Keto opinion as far as what to eat, is just that, his opinion. Protein will not ruin healthy kidneys. I don’t do Keto, but I do eat a high fat, low carb diet and I love bacon cheeseburgers to meet this end.

  • ok girls and boys i’m tired of being insecure about my thighs so i’m gonna do this workout twice a day for a month ����

  • Naomi, you just found everybody who is really important in the keto world. Fantastic as always! Thank you for sharing! Looking forward to the next videos!

  • Hi good night or morning my name is Ashley an I found out that I have PCOS this month an I am looking for advice and support on how I am to cope with my PCOS, I am sad an worried

  • This acne guide AcneCureOnline. Com was very informative and helpful. I often go through gentle adult acne and this guide discusses all the possible solutions for mild to severe acne whether natural procedures or otherwise. I prefer the natural way of treating them and I found out on this guide the treatments that work efficiently.

  • Thank you for the video! I honestly feel like I have pcos since I have a lot of the symptoms even though I’ve visited my doctor ab this. My periods are really irregular and I skip 2-3+ months which scares me. Would doctors be able to diagnose pcos through a blood test only? I never did the internal ultrasound because I’m a bit scared of it.

  • Starting from 22/08

    before: left 54,5 cm; right 55,2 cm
    (I also going to do a healthy diet and some workouts for waist)

  • I’ve been looking for a specific video of Rachel’s and I can’t remember what it’s called but the thumbnail of this video has an outfit from the video. It was a video that showed off some of her staple clothing pieces. It’s a bit of an older video as well. Does anyone know the name of the video?

  • I’m gonna start the 14 Day Summer Shred Challenge starting from TOMORROW! (21st August 2020)

    Like this comment so that I remember to update you guys!

    Also, recommend me more challenges so that I can help you guys figure out what is worth your time and what isn’t!

    India. 20. Vegetarian. Body type not obese, but not skinny I do have a tummy, I have thick thighs and a bit of a double chin. I was very sporty in school but after high school, I stopped playing. I am stronger than the average girl (compared to my girlfriends) I can do 10 push ups in a row with ease, I have been gymming since I was 14 (can’t gym anymore cause lockdown) so I do have some muscle but I could never stay consistent. I eat very healthy (mom raised us with NO snacks or junk food growing up so I can’t even look at that stuff).  

    What My Updates Will Consist Of:
    I’m going to workout on an empty stomach after I wake up, and i’m going to measure myself every single day as an update. 
    I’m going to work out at the same time so that my results will be as accurate as I get them. 
    I’ll also eat the same thing everyday at the same time for more accuracy. The only thing that will differ are the vegetables.

    1. Measurements will be in inches as Bust-Waist-Hips (currently 22-28.5-34)
    2. Weight
    3. How hard the workout was (easy, medium, difficult).
    4. Any soreness

    There will be NO rest days for 14 days.

    I don’t eat breakfast because I feel queasy in the morning. I also have a fucked up sleep schedule so I end up waking up for lunch.
    Lunch two phulkas (, 3 different types of vegetables, rice.

    Afternoon coffee, 1 toast (or two, depends how hungry I am). sometimes fruits like pomegranates.

    Dinner two rotis, 3 different types of vegetables, rice.

    Before I sleep chamomile tea. (only sometimes).

    Midnight snacks NONE!! 
    don’t like dessert.

    Body Measurements BEFORE:
    Height: 5’4 or 165 cm.
    Bust 33 inches or 83.82 cm.
    Waist: 28.5 inches or 72.39 cm.
    Hips 34 inches or 86.36 cm.
    Body fat percentage 22.5%, US Navy method.
    Weight 54 kg or 119 pounds.

    DAY 1, 22nd August 2020:
    Level of workout:

  • Cysts can grow almost anywhere in your body or under your skin. There are many different types of cysts. Most cysts are benign, or noncancerous. You are what you eat. Certain foods heighten testosterone like liquorice/licorice. Once upon a time poly cystic people were worshipped as fertility goddess’s due to naturally being fertile. I am personally concerned about high level use of pesticide in the food system of which the biggest organ in the human body (the skin) naturally detox’s which causes my acne. I have a family history of cancer but it is because my older family members were part of the industrial revolution that caused the multiple use and abuse of the chemical revolution that I have managed to try and avoid through being educated. Your gut flora isn’t really going to effect PCOS; unless your messing so much with your gut flora that your spiking hormones. Doctors are not required to be trained in nutrition or how food is farmed or the industrial revolution; but slowly things are changing. The history of naturopathy states that first you need to remove ‘harm’ and nature should take care of it’s self aka; natural cure. Well done on the low GI diet though to slow the diabetes epidemic that is plaguing the first world and is a proven cause of PCOS. Also not being able to afford only organic food is a socio/economic problem which only the top 1% can’t afford and highly relevant in today’s messed up financial first world.

  • Going to try this ����
    Before: 170cm 64kg 32inch
    D1: Was hard but i did it, kindda confused with the steps as i rarely do workouts �� Russian twist was super easy or i maybe i did it wrong?? And I’m also confused on how to breathe during workout

  • The only thing that works for my acne is taking one month of minocyclene. I’ve tried all natural remedies nothing. Within about a week, my acne clears up. I find dairy products do make it a bit more sensitive but I love cheese. For me it’s inflammation. It also took me a long time to get a diagnosis as well. I’m working on losing the weight gained over the last five years but it definitely gets hard over the years as you age. I’m doing a moderate carb diet (about 100 carbs) per day keto is too restrictive for me. Adding more fibre, protein and reducing carbs does help for me.

    My mood swings have definitely balanced out over the years. I’ve just learned to get more sleep and exercise and then the moods improve. Sleep is meh. Periods are back on track too.

  • You have to wear good ear plugs with highest decibel protection like those for construction work. Use those at night when you go to sleep you will see how that will be beneficial for your health and well being.

  • Up to now I haven’t had super bad acne or a lot of hair growth what I had was my periods were regular and then they started becoming irregular and I started gaining weight without a calorie surplus I become overweight and it hurt from time to time I’ll have small pains

  • Imma do this in 2 weeks

    Left: 50cm
    Right: 50cm

  • Jeff: You wanna superficially trick yourself into thinking you’re doing MUCH better even when you’re only starting to do a little better

    Me: WowI never thought I could trick myself while KNOWING I’m tricking myself

    Seriously Jeff, super big brain right here

  • okay, so I’m only 17 going on 18 and I have irregular and delayed periods. They come after every 2 months, stay for 7 days and then I don’t see them for two whole months. No discharge. Nothing at all. My hair growth is heavy. I have hair on my feet, toes, fingers, thighs, forearms, chest and abdomen but my mom has this too. It’s genetic I think. I don’t have cystic acne, my pimples would come and go but I have dark spots on my skin idek why. My hair are thinning but I’m not losing it in chunks or leaving bald spots, they’ve always been extra fragile. When I brush them too hard, they’d fall and even when I’m sitting on my bed, a whole ass strand of hair would come out of my hair. Yeah, I’m losing my hair in the form of single strands and not chunks. I don’t know what’s wrong with me and I haven’t told my mom yet, can someone please diagnose me. I also experience normal cramps when I’m on my period but it sucks bc I don’t see them for another 2 months

  • I don’t even want abs I’m just tired of the fact that everytime I look in the mirror my subconscious automatically sucks in my stomach ��

  • these videos literally explained nothing about losing actual body fat. i have watched a few videos of this guy and he is a joke….Dude. please stop!! you have good genetics thats all and are clueless when it comes to helping people actually lose body fat and get ripped….. this video you said to crunches and push ups lmao i mean cmon pathetic

  • I dont understand why there are more likes than dislikes. Click bait title. Guys an actor. Bad narrator. Zero proof the murph was done everyday for 30 days. What a waste of time. Terrible all around.

  • Can you create a list of the supplements you are talking about? I was surprised not to see them written out as panel slides on your video and it would be helpful for people since you speak rather quickly and the words may not be as clear to some.

  • I am 21 year old female i have pcos that is a yes that is the trust.My doctor srinivas put me on medroxyprogesterone pill ten mg.

  • I am an obese person at age 22 and just today i realized that i have OCOS and the doctor had to comment on my weight to the point of making me cry i understand that it’s bcz of my poor decisions but the fact that OCOS does make you gain weight a lot is just so frustrating! I’ve been eating my entire life normally a lot of my friends who are skinnier than me actually eat more than me or eat junk food on a daily basis! I don’t eat junk food till i’m with someone who eats it and it’s pretty rare! It’s unfair! I’ve been trying to feel good about myself and love my body the way it is for a couple of months and it started to show i started to love myself more and then there is this doctor calling me names and commenting aggressively about it to the point of making me cry… Like the fuck? I’m on my journey to lose weight it’s been a month maybe i’ve lost this year 6 kg which for me is great… I’m not going to let myself live like this i want to improve my health and everything while of course loving myself but some people just can’t let it be that easy… I guess it’s a part of the journey… Anyways i’m going to do my best and i’m not going to let her words get to me

  • Welcome to subscribe to tianyuming TV for long-term release and upload of domestic movies and TV series. Welcome to watch!

  • I wish you would’ve put the supplements on the screen…. like am I even spelling what I’m hearing right? “Radiola Intrisangra”?????

  • Omg your story is exactly like mine!!!
    I have gained weight but I don’t look fat and even eating low carbs cause of my “celiac” i don’t look my weight. I just got diagnosed this year and I’m 31 because as soon as would loose a little bit of weight (2-3lbs) I would get my period so heavy and painful that I ended up in the hospital. I’m hoping I can get the help like you did!

  • The best way to get yourself on track with pcos is through diet. Sugars count as carbs. So you need to have low sugar and carb intake. Kinda like the keto diet, but not as extreme. Eat some meat healthy amounts of veggies and fruit, plus staying away from processed foods and soy.
    ( Soy works as an estrogen and can throw your hormones off. And soy is in everything, especially processed stuff)

  • i am doing this and drinking about 6 bottles of water a day for a week (no sugar drinks except for milk)

    ��day 1��-honestly, it wasn’t too difficult for me. I didn’t do any modifications and i did it two times after a cardio workout

  • I am sold on KETO, and I am motivated listening to DeLauer. His enthusiastic, informative and personable style compel my attention and action. But what happened to the dry-fast emphasis? Last year, in moderately cool temperatures, under 72 degrees fahrenheit, I graduated my eating and water consumption into a three day dry-fast, easing out of the fast with a two day break fast into a once a day eating style that really kick-starting my present path to fantastic health. Thank you for continuing to share your healthy lifestyle with the world and helping improve our nation’s eating, exercise and overall health, Jon

  • Oooh my God, I have all those signs you are talking about,I have gained weight,terrible acne,mood swings…Thank you very much for this information,I felt so alone….
