    5 months on this diet going onto 6 soon. Only thing is not moving is my stomach fat. Love handles, pot belly still there but I'm losing fat in my legs and upper chest area. How long did it take you guys to lose it without working out? I also have a question about genes and heredity too. My dad is a skinny person me and him exactly have the same body type.

Getting all my electrolytes.
