    Remember this guy? The trainer who took six months last year to destroy his diet and workouts only to use the next six months to regain his health and fitness? Well, he's 3.5 months out from his goal to be back to fit.

    How do you think he'll do? I'm thinking it'll take a little longer than he thought.

    I like his face better in the fat pic. Unfortunately that's how it goes a lot of the time, shredding down and getting to the lowest body fat possible many times jacks up the face.

    That seems to be the case with many guys. Many times it gives a 'facial wasting' look that's associated with HIV meds side effects. At the same time, you have drug companies advertising facial injections to make the face fuller as a result of HIV meds side effects...go figure

    Diet and exercise can, ironically, really age you in the face if you push it far enough. I've gone into RJ profiles of really ripped guys and my first impression when I look at them is "oh this guy's in his 30's", then I'll realize it's like a 19 year old kid. It doesn't help that harsh tanning often goes hand in hand with the lifestyle.

    wouldnt it be relatively easy for someone once fit to become shredded?

    i mean, the body holds memory cells/muscle memory.

    a lot of those before and after pics that weight supplements products use to advertise are fitness models that gained weight and lost it in a short span of time.

    case in point.

    Janet Jackson - gained 60 plus pounds for a movie role that fell thru.. in a span of 4-5 months she went from

    I think it's his ridiculous grin in the 'skinny' picture.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way.

    AMoonHawk saidright now he's smacking down on a donut .... junk food is addicting .... that and the factor that he is getting older .... he'll never be able to get back to his previous build because he has stretched his skin out and fat cells have a memory. I bet he has to go in a get lipo if he wants to look like he did before.



    LOL, this isn't accurate.

    It seems like it's usually the before picture people try to look sour in, and then they smile in the after.

    Just looks off having it all reversed.

    It's actually semi-accurate and not too farfetched. Getting fat means both an increase in the number of fat cells and those fat cells "filling up" with fat. When you lose weight, you "deflate" your fat cells of their fat content, but the extra fat cells themselves don't go away. What you're left with is a bunch of empty fat cells just waiting to fill themselves up again with fat.

    If you've gained enough weight, there's a good chance that the extra fat tissue that you gained won't allow you to completely return to a shredded physique unless the fat tissue is surgically removed (ie liposuction) and/or your skin hasn't been stretched too much. Judging from his Nov 5 picture, he may be at or near that point where diet and exercise alone won't allow him to completely return to his former physique (at least with regard to his abs).

    I'm interested to see what happens with this guy, I remember reading about him. My guess is that he won't have any problem losing the weight considering he already knows what he's doing and has lived the lifestyle before. Whether his body goes back the way it should is what remains to be seen.

    lol, nah, it's not accurate. Fat cell theory is a debunked 30 year old idea that states that fat cells are predetermined at puberty and can only divide from there and not reduce in numbers. However, there is evidence in the medical literature that many factors produced by other cells cause the morphology of fat to change with changes in metabolism and can lead to apoptosis (cell death) of adipose (fat) tissue. If you don't believe me, do a pubmed search.

    Just to put my opinion in context, I have some experience in the field of cell differentiation and dedifferentiation as I did my postdoctorate study at one of the most well-known labs in tissue engineering in the country. Also, my current work is in the plastic surgery arena so I have spoken to many many of the global thought leaders in this field about this very issue.

    Oh, and his skin is not stretched to the point where it wont rebound, not at his age.

    I will never be fat, even if I wanted to be. Itd be great to have to worry about my diet and have weight I want to get rid of. Maybe then I'd have more motivation. Guys who have to watch their weight got it lucky in my opinion. At least when you work out you have the build for an appealing physique. I will just look like a stick with muscles drawn over it.
