I am just wondering if the diet works if one is skinny fat? Not obese , but someone who strength trains but with less than ideal body composition - in the 20% body-fat range and has trouble dropping it further. I have never had visible abs or been at 10% bodyfat!
I’m into the 1st week and the half of a new V-Diet cycle. The last one was done 3-4 months ago that took me from 170lb at 21%BF to 160lb at 19%BF.
I’m perhaps coming to the realization that I may be displaying symptoms of skinny fat. I have had this body composition for years despite lifting weights and dabbling in HIIT and Crossfit. Fairly lean elsewhere but problematic midsection with no visible abs. And of course I fell into the low carb camp and was carb-phobic for a long time.
Will the calorie deficit in the V-Diet help to break through a fat loss plateau when being skinny fat or will it worsen it?
How does the diet take care of issues like hormonal health, liver function, lipid profile, all which has a part to play in one being skinny fat.
