    How long does it take to lose fat around waist if I’m skinny fat?

    Currently 143lb 5’9 27M. I was told focusing on lifting will get me out of this skinny fat situation and i was wondering if i’ll lose my waist a good amount and have decent muscle definition in 3 months. I’m hitting gym 3 times a week full body workout eating lots of food including protein. I work out for an hour in the gym using machines, dumbells and barbell.

    My mom is also skinny fat. Very skinny with flat chest skinny legs and arms but muffin top. I’m sure it’s genetic.

    Can’t post pictures also can’t post on reddit saying it can be found from search but not really same as my situation. Most people asking how long to lose belly is actually eating calories deficit and doing cardio cuz they’re fat fat.

    I’m just not sure if i’ll be able to see any difference in 3 months. Is that too soon? I don’t need to be that bulky. I just want decent muscle definition while slim where i don’t have bulging waist..my lower back fat and love handles are the worst.

    Fat loss is the same for anyone - create a calorie deficit large enough and off it comes.

    If you don't have enough muscle underneath then you aren't going to get abs if that's what you were hoping. It would be a better use of your time to build some muscle before attempting that.

    But i see articles talking about how to get out of skinny fat and it says if I lift hard, while resting i’ll burn fat. So even when I’m not calorie deficit i’ll gain muscle and burn fat at the same time. Is this true?

    No, its not true. In order to lose fat you must be in a calorie deficit.

    And no, you will not lose a significant amount fat and gain muscle definition in just 3 months. Building muscle takes A LONG time (YEARS). Fat loss and muscle gain are really opposing goals (one requires a caloric deficit and one requires a caloric surplus), so you really need to pick one and go after it.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Recomping is possible - but works better for people who are fat fat. It will limit the muscle gain you can achieve - and if gaining muscle is what will have the biggest impact on your physique then it's not the best course of action for you.

    Too many people get obsessed with the fat loss side of things - you won't go from here to a nice physique just by dieting. There will need to be a LOT of mass gain too - which entails temporarily carrying more fat than you might like.
