Earlier this week a friend of mine was told by a doctor that he had a fatty liver and needed to change his diet and start exercising. He is the skinny computer geek type and eats nothing but Mc'Donalds and KFC.
Never having lifted any weights, he came to me for advice and I pointed him towards WBB.
I was curious about his situation and started browsing the web for more information.
I found many articles which talk about the differences between "regular" fat under the skin and fat around/in your organs. Some used the example of a sumo wrestler and the misconception of them being overweight and having a heart attack some day, when they are healthier than the skinny person who does little exercise if any and has an unhealthy diet.
My questions are...
Is this true?
Surely sumo wrestlers are still at risk of heart disease?
How does this apply to people trying to bulk?
