    What should I do? Help

    Hi guys , I'm 26 years old from the UK, I'm currently 71kg/11 stone and 173cm tall (5ft 9) at 22% body fat , I want to get my body fat down as although I'm skinny I also don't have a flat stomach and I want to slim the fat off my belly, but I would like to be around 13-14 stone, so how do I shed the body fat but put weight on? What advice would you have? I've been on a high calorie diet for the last month to try and bulk up but that won't get rid of the body fat 🤷‍♂️ thanks in advance

    What we usually see from skinny guys whose first thought is to lose fat is that they keep trying to diet and never get any definition, just get smaller and more hungry.

    The thing you have to get your head around is that the biggest difference is going to be made by gaining muscle. This takes longer than losing fat and you need a surplus of calories since your target weight is higher than your current weight. So in the short to medium term you will have more fat on your body than you would like. It will be worth it in the end but you have to go through the process.

    Thanks for the reply , so it's better to not worry about losing fat and concentrate on bulking? Won't my body fat get even higher and become unhealthy though? 22% is already quite high?

    If you allow your weight to rise only slowly (say 1-2lbs a month) then most of it should be muscle - of course you need to work hard in the gym using an effective routine that features planned progressive overload and trains the whole body in balance (Fierce 5 is one suggestion).

    It may true in a very broad sense to say that higher BF% is less healthy but if you go from not doing much exercise to doing lots then chances are you will be MORE healthy even if you are heavier. For example, the average rugby player is probably healthier than the average skinny guy who does nothing except walk to the smoking point for exercise.
