  • Ideal Abs Accompanied by Skeletor Face

    I've been eating and exercising PB for close to a year. I'm hooked on the lifestyle and have achieved great results. I've reached my ideal weight/BMI a couple times, and when I do my abs really start to show great definition. Unfortunately, when I lose those last couple pounds off my belly, I also noticeably lose more fat around my cheeks, so much so that I start to look unhealthy-skinny in my face. Have any of you experienced this? I love the definition my body shows with fat loss, but the Skeletor face isn't working for me.

    Yes. When I am ripped my face is boney thin looking. Everyone is different in how much fat they have in various places. As you lose fat, you lose it systemically. It just so happens that by getting lean enough to clearly see your abs, the fat in your face reaches that very low level as well. Someone with more fat cells in their face genetically with the same amount and type of fat cells in their abs as you would not look as gaunt when ripped.

    Another thing to consider is that its really not healthy for a lot of people to be that ripped or low in body fat for extended periods of time. Most body builders, actors, models all train for "peak" condition for photo shoots, contests, movie rolls etc. They do NOT stay in that condition for very long at all as its too restrictive and unhealthy. That said, some people are naturally very lean and can easily stay at or near that condition with little sacrifice or effort. Most of us simply don't have that body type and trying to achieve and maintain that look is very taxing and unnatural. This is the simple truth of it.

      I cannot offer you a solution to your problem, but this is probably the best thread title I've seen on a forum in weeks.

        There is no solution that I know of other than having some fat injected into your face by a qualified professional.

          Hey, Skeletor is sexy!

          How do you feel about growing a beard? A little facial hair in the right spots may hide it altogether.

            +1. When my face gets too thin I let my scruff come in a little and that is usually the answer.

              Body fat is lost everywhere, you can't really spot reduce, rip the abs rip the face....the trick is finding that balance.
              Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                The longer you maintain the low BF composition, the better your face will eventually look as you will "settle" in the new property. You will dehydrate, and spend time outdoors, sleep well & stop looking haggard. If you cannot do these three & maintain current body comp for over 6 months, your body just can't exist in that BF%.

                    I love the old adage that a woman over 40 has to choose - bottom or face....I find when I loose a lot of weight so my abs show, my ribs show at breast level and my face is so gaunt it ages me 10 years, I don't know if there is an answer....if there is I want it as I want face and ass

                        So... what are your goals? What's important to you?

                        Do you want the women to come running or do you want to impress the guys at the gym? That's a serious question. Chicks won't usually care about washboard abs if you're generally lean, but the guys at the gym aren't too concerned about whether you have a pretty face or not. It's all about what you want.

                        I like the beard idea, but I like beards on guys anyway.

                            If you go to a gym, do heavy sets for your core with cable machines.
