30 Million Skinny Fat Americans

By all appearances, skinny fat people look slim. They don't have a bulging belly or thunder thighs. But the mass they do have isn't muscular or even solid. A study from the Mayo Clinic estimates that there may be as many as 30 million skinny fat Americans sitting on sofas and clicking through channels out there. Those with 'normal weight obesity' tend to have the same metabolic abnormalities that obviously obese people do.

True Strength Moment: The way out of this skinny fat trap is regular strength training and smarter nutritional choices. Lifting weights will build up your lean mass and ramp up your metabolism to help burn off the flab. Those who want to see results faster might try High Intensity Interval Training. Either way, eating right goes a long way toward getting your body into better shape.
