I always used to be a skinny-fat kid. Like really tall and lanky, with a slightly protruding gut. People used to think I'd blow over in high winds.
Anyways, a couple years ago I started working out seriously, and putting on muscle. The weirdest part was, every time I'd visit my family, they would think that I was losing more and more weight!
1) eat real food - more vegetables, moderate meat, moderate fruits, less grains, less sugar, less vegetable oils.
2) exercise - moderate intensity cardio, sprinting, heavy lifting, dedicated stretching and mobility.
3) live - relax, de-stress, meditate.
