    If he had kept the weight for a couple of years it would have been interesting... but 6 months is really nothing for someone who has been in shape for most of his life. The weight loss isn't all that impressive, but I guess his goal was mostly to get into the mindset of a fat fuck.

    Theres a guy at my gym who started off at about 300+ a few years ago and dropped to about 185. He lifts and does cardio like a mad man 5x week... but no matter what he can't get rid of the gut and just chalks it up to having been a fatty for most of his adult life.

    This was posted in the weight loss thread. Good story. Gotta appreciate that he did it to be better at his job. It can be so easy for a shredder trainer to not understand his fatty clients.

    I think more than anything this experiment showed that people who can't lose the weight are weak minded lazy fucks.

    When he was fat, he looked less like a tool.

    Read the post 2 above yours, you negative twat. Not ever human being has the physical capacity to look like Mr. Universe regardless of their mindset or even physical training.

    Because if you cant find a suitable guy to do it by now why the hell would I be willing? And no.

    Seriously, every single post of yours is how shitty everything is. Go find something you enjoy doing and try to be happy you miserable fuck.

    He did it to get on the teeeveee, but it's still an interesting story.
    That'll do it. Especially the sugary drinks, it's ridiculous how many calories a person can consume without ever eating anything, with that shit.

    It's even worse if he was also a fatty as a kid. Parents who don't make sure their kids eat healthy pretty much fuck them for life.

    The guy was in shape and let himself go for 6 months. Its easy to rebound in that situation. For someone thats been a chronic fatty and never done a lick of exercise it would take about a year just to get fit enough to workout properly, build passable cardio, and clean out the internal gunk buildup from years of self-abuse. Another year to pile on fat burning muscle, and yet another year to shred.

    Weigh loss (genetics and body chemistry aside) has almost nothing to do with cardio, though. It's mostly about diet, and a little bit about muscle mass and an overall active lifestyle.

    I was around 270 at my heaviest and now I'm around 190 and going to the gym 4-5 times a week. Been on a workout regiment for a little over 4 months now. While way way better than I've ever been, I can tell it takes some times to erase years of being shitty.

    My belief is cardio helps all around fitness... their are plenty of bodybuilders that do zero cardio and are of course ripped. Its just a preference in personal fitness goals. But yes I'd agree.. diet is at least 50% of the solution, and by that I mean avoidance of bad carbs.. not necessarily calorie counting.

    i call bullshit, you cant stretch your skin out like that then expect it to bounce back that fast, he should have some serous stretch marks and the skin shouldn't conform to his muscles like that, im "skinny fat" i have NEVER been able to have definition like that because my entire childhood i was a fatty. ive tried everything to get rid of "the flab" its genetics

    Nah, it's real. i remember the stories from when he was fat. It's just easy to bounce back when you are not fat for very long. Actors do that shit all the time.
