    I kinda want to stalk a muscle jock mostly because I just want to know what their daily routine is to chisel such a hot body. What do they eat? What workouts did they do? I want to know the formula because I feel like I've done most of what I can and I don't see much result.

    I'm getting so tired of the stomach fat that is lingering on me. I'm not a particularly fat person. I'm actually fairly skinny but most of my body fat is all around my belly. I know that there's no way to target a specific area of fat to lose. I have to lose fat overall. I call this "skinny fat" because I seriously don't look fat at all. My arms, legs and chest are ok, it's all in the belly. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I'm sure I'm not the only "skinny fat" person out there. It's so frustrating!! It's also so hard to lose any body fat when you don't have a whole lot of it to lose.

    Sushi, sake, and copious amounts of fast food and soft drinks works for me.

    To the OP: you may be hitting the mid-20s metabolic wall - ectomorphic dominant body types are particularly prone to this.

    Ectomorphs tend to deposit excess bodyfat to the abdomen and hips, while rarely appearing on the extremeties (legs & arms).

    My recommendation (if you haven't already heard it a million times already) :

    - Resistance workouts: low rep, heavy loads. Preferably full-body exercises such as cleans and presses, Squats, Turkish Get-ups and kettlebell swings

    - very low carb diet: soda pop, sweet juices, pasta... excess carbs are the skinnyfat. man's mortal enemy (I speak from personal experience here lol)

    - conversely, lots of leafy greens, legumes, chicken, ocean-caught fish (as opposed to farm-raised). Lean red meat and pork in moderation, and fatty red meat sparingly. If you have a very trustworthy butcher who can procure organic ruminant meat, particularly beef/bison, raw or very rare preparations can be both fun and very nutritious. Same goes for sushi/sashimi grade tuna such as ahi-ahi (my fave late night snack in shoyu and wasabi)

    - getting quality sleep - at least 7-9 hours per night, especially on workout days.

    These are really general guidelines for anyone wanting to reduce bodyfat and pack on some muscle; it's just that us skinnyfat/ectomorphs got to work a bit harder for it.

    Genetically, we get the double whammy of being hardgainers and as we get older, the once hyper-fast metabolic furnace can't absolve us from dietary sins as nicely as it once did icon_biggrin.gif
