I am curious how some thin people in our society are able to eat high-fat diets and not store all of the fat they eat? Is it somehow eliminated, or stored internally, in between the organs, or what? Is something different about the way their bodies handle fat?
I am just so curious. As for me, I steer clear of the fat!
Fat is still clogging their arteries and I think they are as much as risk as obese people. I used to be skinny fat (still skinny, I hope I'm not that fat anymore ?) and I had very bad blood pressure, so definitively not going well... Appearance is not everything.
skinny fat doesnt really exist. It simply means you have no muscle mass. You can either be fat or skinny. I do understand the term skinny fat, but it just means skinny with lack of muscle.
I've been eating LOTS of nuts, vegan "dairy"-producs and vegan fast-food for a while and was even skinnier that I am now. My total intake was around 2200-2500kcal per day and I exercise daily; between one and 4 hours. No wonder I didn's gain weight, huh? =D
Atlhough it seems as a benefit it really is not. It mostly shows that you are not absorbing/procesing food correctly. I am one of those people who can eat anything and never gain weight but let me tell you. High fat diet makes me ill, with low energy, performace drops and my mood changes like a weather. And I look like shit anyways. No win at all.
Some people who eat high fat diets don't gain weight because the amount of calories they consume doesn't exceed the amount of calories they burn.
Heh, all my cousins are lean skinny mother fudgers and they consume the most unhealthiest foods ever. I'll be laughing my head off when they die of heart diseases and chronic failures within the next 30 years from now ^_^ [I'll be chomping down a banana while doing so mind you >_0]
^ Everything related to Fat seems like a horrible idea >_< : D
No idea.... All my friends and relatives eat cr*ploads of high-fat foods [including animal products]. Most of them look zillion times better then me. Also their health is realllllyyy good. + they all have bad sleep routines and they're drinking alcohol. Seems pretty unfair for me, but....it's just how it is.
I remember last summer. I did one-hour hardcore-ish bike rides every or every other day, and some light but sweating activities on the other days [+being active apart from those bike rides too, not just 1hr of something]. And every time I came home, my brother is smashing down eggs or sandwiches, or oily pasta+cheese, or various meats/high-fat-high-cheese pizzas/burgers/fatty salads/potatoe chips + booze.....etc. Ofcourse he eats healthier stuff too - veggies, fruit, but it allways has cr*ploads of fat along with it.
And his physique is just WOOOW [he's just partying [which is pretty active lol] or taking light bike rides here and there, or some crunches/pushups, or irregular, not-so-often high intensity stuff]. And he's like HOT and ripped, and lean, slim, toned. Both of my brothers actually look almost like Harley Durianrider. But my body - just chubby, 10kg too-heavy chunk of flesh and fat hahahahah.
Lol, right? I'm like - how do you guys do that??
I often keep silent about me being "healthy", since they look waaaaay more lean/slim than I do.
I really think that MAYBE it's smthng to do with being young. Idk. But then again - I'm in my 20s either.
