    All you skinny people showing off I'm 85kg. Supposedly at 6ft 2 that's acceptable but I still feel fat and have no muscle on my arms.
    That is a bad case of skinny-fat which affects many men today. You eat too much and do little exercise especially it's your arms, hence most of the fat goes to your belly and chest, creating a dirty gut and a sorry pair of manboobs. I would suggest cutting down to 15% body fat (which I am guessing would be around 72kg give or take a few) while doing some proper strenuous body weight and compound exercise.

    If you are serious about losing fat, then swimming is a great exercise. Another amazing exercise that few people know about is walking for six miles which a rucksack carrying 25kg of free weights. That with the proper diet, and complimentary body weight and compound exercises will absolutely rip your body to shreds.

    So I'm somewhat skinny. Like I can wrap my hands around my bicep without flexing and I can touch my middle finger with my thumb. I'm 16 male and I've always been fairly skinny. I'm pretty sure it's just one of those everyone develops differently kind of things. But it's summer and I really want to wear tanktops. See, when I put them on my body actually seems in proportion and I personally think it looks okay. But I'm thinking of just ignoring what others may think and just going for it. Also I am going to the gym but I really need to start going more often.

    Do you agree?
    if you dont like something in your body, change it

    go drink drink half a gallon of full fat milk everyday for a few weeks on top of what you normally eat and exercise and come back and tell me how much food/drink doesnt impact your body weight pal

    A good diet is about 80% of building muscle, exercise is very important but you will never build it without goodnutrtition

    Food will not always improve body weight. I have evidence. Read my earlier post.
    I 100% guarantee you will gain weight if you eat more. If you don't it means you have a medical condition and should see a doctor.

    Well I have a fair set of muscles in my legs, I run occasionally and I speed walk 2km to school then 2km back most days. But all my fat really runs to my upper legs rather than my chest, and a bit on my lower chest (stomach area) but no moobs. But thank you for your advice, I'll try and lose a bit but I doubt I'll reach 72kg.

    Ok, good luck. I am 6'1" and was 85kg at the start of 2016. I am 70-71kg now, and confident that I will have lost the last of my belly fat by 2017.

    I think I eat way more than what you're suggesting. I'll add the 500kcal onto that. Maybe that'll work? Anyway, this thread isn't about me.

    I mentioned I can wrap my hand round my bicep without flexing and my middle finger can touch my thumb when I do that.

    Touch your middle finger with your thumb? Can't everyone with a hand do that?
