    Skinny Fat Help

    March 25, 2019, 5:53 pm

    Scott came across your skinny fat video on YouTube and it really helped me pin down why my body looks like it does.  I'm 6'1", 244 and, according to my scale, 45% body fat (shudder).

    I started back to the gym at the end of January and have been doing Stronglifts 5x5 MWF and hitting my bike once during the weekend as something to try to get some of the fat off and honestly feel I'm making little to no progress.  After watching your YT skinny fat video I looked into your meal plan stuff and feel like I've been doing it all wrong from the get go.

    I'm trying to do a "reboot" of sorts to get the diet in line with my goals.  My first goal is to get rid of this huge spare tire I'm carrying around my waist.  I've joked in the past that I look 6-8 months pregnant.  Once that is gone, or greatly reduced, I'd like to work on building up more muscle.

    I went through the meal plan calculators and came up with:

    BMR Calc:

    Weight: 244

    Height: 6'1"

    Age: 40

    Exercises: Little or no exercise and desk job

    Sex: Male

    BMR at Rest: 2241.22

    BMR in Motion: 2689.46

    Macro Calculaton:

    Goal: Rapid Fat Loss

    Bodyfat%: 45%

    Grams of Protein: 1.5

    Grams of Fat: 0.55

    Calorie Goal: 2189

    Protein: 201g

    Fat: 74g

    Carb: 180g

    Does this seem about right?  In your meal plan video you mentioned you recommend a lean gain for 18% and lower bodyfat composition, but never really went into what you should do if you're higher.  Or in my case much much higher and what route someone in my case should take.  Any feedback you could share would be great.
