Well, that puts an entirely different spin on it. I thought his cardio exercise was making the fat droopier and less confining.

That is what cardio does. Some of your muscle is used as energy. Like I said before, that big 'ol guy would not be able to last long at all in a fight. He would swing hard as a mallet but he'd tire super quickly.

I've heard of this happening before but I don't remember any really convincing scientific explanation. Maybe just keep at it? And do both cardio and strength training. For balance, man.

Also, body fat equals greater leverage. I don't remember why this works either but it's way easier for a fat person to press bench.

Yeah, it makes it that much harder to drag a street fight out, rather than knocking them down and running the fuck away. Which I assume is the more dangerous option maybe? :wink:

If you eat carbs before you work out it should help with muscle loss. It's strange that you'd lose more muscle than fat, but if you are losing both equally that's actually just how it works.

Really? Carbs? I could've sworn it was protein, which is absorbed more readily during and after exercise.

Protein is good for building muscle, but carbs are good for fat loss. That's what I've read, at least.

I lost ten pounds the month I started to exercise again. TEN WHOLE POUNDS!
I actually ate MORE than I usually did. That gave me an upset stomache, but I mostly had spaghetti and meatballs. The oven didn't work, so we had things that boiled like pasta alot that month. Alot of exercise + alot of good foods - usual crap you eat + ??? = profit!

Well, that's a good sales pitch, but I doubt you'll be able to fool people long enough to get a book deal out of it.

Pfft, I've read worse books than that.

Just imagine it... "My Story: How a Man Named Lord Retard Lost a Few Pounds by Eating Whatever and Not Exercising"
