Maybe just dumb to begin with? Or perhaps you'd like to explain how losing fat will bring in somebody's gut when they barely have any fat anyway or when you can just tell the gut itself is protruding out?

For anyone actually interested in stomach vacuums, here's an article on them at bodybuilding.com: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/ms-fit5.htm

He has visceral fat on his midsection caused by a bad diet. No amount of core strengthening is going to diminish the fat. Spot reduction does not exist. If this thread was titled "I can't grab any fat but I have a protruding stomach" maybe I'd agree. He needs a nice clean diet coupled with intensity interval training and his stomach will be flat in two months easily. http://www.homeexercisecoach.com/spot-reduce.html http://ezinearticles.com/?Can-You-Sp...es?&id=1986889

A good diet far outweighs exercise anyday. Exercise is the 10%, so to speak.

Starting my first year of college, I too became skinny-fat. The shit diet, the awful sleep patterns and of course the unbelievable amount of alcohol did my body no favors. I think I was over 170 lbs. in 2007 and early 2008. Now, I am down to 156. I've only really committed myself to exercise and better diet over the past two months. -I've cut out fast food. I used to love going to McDonald's or Panera a couple of times a week to get a breakfast sandwich, burger, etc. I just don't do that anymore. -I've really reduced sugar intake. My meals include almost no unrefined sugar. To maintain sanity, I allow myself one small treat per day. -Protein intake is up quite a bit. Same with fresh fruits and vegetables. -I haven't had a drink in two months. This has surely helped. I am also biking 10+ miles per exercise session (3-4 times a week) and lifting weights. The overall effect has been a much flatter stomach (it used to look distended), slimming of the love handles and a lot more definition in the arms, chest and legs. I think you need to re-evaluate your diet. It's fine to have "bad" foods once in a while. Two slices of pizza is fine on occasion. But a Subway sandwich every day? Blech. I don't even want to get into how nasty their meats and vegetables are.

My only regret is that I waited so long (although I doubt the techniques were available ten years ago). Make sure you go to a TOP doc. If they f**k it up, you will look really funny, forever. If you do it, don't tell anybody! Just enjoy how good you look and keep it a secret.

My knee-jerk reaction is to assume that this is trolling. This is a joke, right?

Well, I don't want to be accused of trolling - I've posted on here a few times before, always about clothes - but there are some really good home gym solutions out there. Bodylastics makes a great system that's easy to use, especially for beginners. Safe, pain-free and affordable.

Bodylastics + spam = useless bullshit.

If it's visceral fat, it could have been caused by years of bad diet and lack of exercise and not much remedied by a moderate amount of time following better habits. It also is possible that depression negates the benefits of the good habits. Probably the best supplement to take to burn visceral fat is green tea.

A few months of bad diet, in my case, caused skinny fat-ness.

sometimes lunch becomes dinner and i eat only two meals that day, depending on my schedule. Once a month or so i'll go out for beer and wings with co-workers. I don't really drink alcohol much either.

Your diet is quite good. But as from one of the replies said, cut off sodas at night because it adds up 150+ calories that you take. But if you really want to shed off some fat especially on your belly, try not to drink sodas anymore. Try to replace it with low-calorie juices, and more water.
Also, I suggest that you try to replace spaghetti and rice on dinner because these two are really heavy.
Just try to achieve healthy diet first.

I'd get rid of the white rice, if that's something you do eat.

Go for brown. I prefer it more myself.

Yeah, when the hull is removed all the inherent magic inside is lost.

Resistance bands will never be as good as free weights, no matter what the marketing guru is calling them at the time. And if you must have resistance bands, there are WAY better ones out there than that crap.
