HoL is right also; eating good food and doing worthwhile exercise will see you undergo a decent recomp as you're just starting out.
I would imagine I'm reaching the point of skinnyfat as well then. I've lost about 10 pounds (207 to currently 195), but I'm concerned I'm going to hit a wall here pretty soon since all I'm doing is cardio and dieting... I'm too lazy go get a gym membership/have nobody to work out with. Isolation exercises won't be as effective so I don't know if it's worth it.

Yeah, it's possible you'll just become a smaller version of yourself. For some people that's fine, but for skinny fat (where I started years ago) looks awful at any stage as your body composition is all out of whack.

You could always get yourself a cheap barbell/bench combo and do heavy compounds at home if you have the space. Personally I prefer working out alone but that's just me.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

So I'm 17, about 6 foot, and roughly 185lb. I'm pretty lean, skinny compared to what I was 5 years ago. When I was 13 I went on Wright Watchers and lost 30lbs. Felt great, but slowly got off of it and have been for years. I have a nice bit of muscle on my calves and arms, mainly. I guess I'm...skinnyfat...not sure what that is, but basically I'm skinny enough to where I can look skinny in certain clothes, but still have some excess fat around my stomach and thighs.

Been hitting the gym multiple times a week with my older brother and eating better. I completely changed my eating habits when I was on WW years ago, but have really tried to get stricter now. Cool thing is that ever since I went on WW my metabolism has risen to the point where I can virtually eat anything and not really gain fat.

Now that the back story is out of the way, I just want to ask, how many calories should I be taking in daily? I'm mostly lifting at the gym hoping that the new muscle will burn and take place of the fat. I can sort of see it in my chest. It's becoming less "fatty" and more "muscley" which is a great motivator. At the same time though, I do want to rid myself of the fat as a whole.

So, how many calories should I take in a day and what exercises can help me get where I wanna be?

Start with 13 * your bodyweight in lb's. Monitor weight changes (once a week; pre breakfast, post piss) and if it's a lot more than a 2lb loss a week then eat a few hundred more. You don't wanna lose it too fast or you'll eat up LBM. If you're the same weight then monitor for one more week (sometimes it takes a while) and if still the same then drop a few hundred cals off the dailies. FWIW, I'd never go below 1800 on a cut.

If you're skinny fat I'd actually advise you bulk; as I posted a few up from yours. However you can achieve a decent recomp by eating a good diet, getting plenty of protein and lifting heavy 3x a week.

As for which lifts; I'm a massive advocate of compound lifts. Deads, Squats, bench, Military, Rows etc. Nothing will build you strength and size better than those will. Check out Starting Strength or Madcows 5x5 routine. You really can't go wrong with either.

Sounds good. Tomorrow's Sunday, guess I'll start then. Thanks for the advice.

I'll fill you in if anything else comes up.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Not ventured on here before. Everyone's different, so I don't believe in sharing work-out tips.
All of our bodies are different shapes, sizes and react to different things.
However, through experience. I'd stay off protein shakes if your still going through puberty.
It'll increase your hormones, and it'll leave you quite spotty and you'll have a greater urge to jack off

It's good for muscle recovery though.
