  1. Doing cardio is good for your body and health, but cardio alone may not help you lose fat especially when you are skinny fat. This is because body burns both fat and muscles if you do cardio alone. You may lose weight, but your body composition in regard to fat percentage may not change. What you need to do is to signal your brain that you need muscles for survival. That’s why weight training is so important for reducing body fat percentage.

    Every body is different and you should find out whats best for you. Being a skinny fat person myself, I did the following to reduce my fat percentage which you can also try out.

    1. Cut out sugar and processed food completely from your diet except fruits. Do not over eat fruits as well. Eat a lot of vegetables.

    2. Include protein in every meal. This reduces the sudden surge in blood sugar as well as provides necessary fuel to sustain your muscles.

    3. Whenever you consume carbohydrates, try to consume low GI version. eg: brown rice instead of white rice, oats instead of packaged cereals etc.

    4. Reduce carbohydrate intake except on the days of weight training.

    5. Do weight training 2-3 times a week. Since you are skinny, lift heavy and do compound exercises.

    6. Do High Intensity Interval Training 2 times a week. It is very effective in burning fat.

    7. Sleep for 7-8 hours on an average.

    8. Do not overeat. Calorie counting is not a practical idea. But be aware of how much you are eating on an average.
