A bit confused now.... Watch

    Ok so about me first and some background info.

    20 years old Male

    Original Aim: Fill out by eating anything and everything

    Result: I have filled out a tad tbh , I'm quite happy at what I'm at. Still skinny but alot better than before. Just generally more of a physical presence now.

    The problem: Although I like my new weight, I have developed some body fat which I'm not used to and don't want to get used to. Its mainly just a kinda faint flab on my stomach and I'm aware of... not man boobs but If I bend over I feel uneasy because a little bit of what looks like fat seem to droop down slightly.

    So basically this freaked me out... that for the first time in my life I can start to see a wobble going on.... its only my front torso tbh. Not anywhere else on my body.

    So nearly a week ago I started reducing my carb intake and eating more veg with dinner . It's now down to the point where thee only carb I had today was a piece of bday cake and 1 malteaser. For me this is a massive reduction. eg I used to not even think about it so I reckon I have reduced my carb intake by 90%

    My question is.... is simply reducing the intake enough for me? like I'm not fat or anything so its not a major weight loss thing... more of a trim the fat sort of thing. Or do I need to cut them out COMPLETELY. Also please note I'm not exercising and I know I should... but the thing is I have always been a rake without exercising anyways so would this tactic work. (I will jog now and again from tmz onwards but not religiously)

    Exercise! you should have hit the gym so you'd put on weight, but healthy weight. it may be more effort than eating unhealthy,but nothing good in life comes easy.
