Before and After Weight Loss – How Do They Fake It?
We’ve all seen them, before and after weight loss pictures on youtube, the internet, forum banners, website side bars. These before and after weight loss pictures are used heavily in marketing campaigns for workouts such as p90x and sixpackshortcuts. These photograps show weight loss before and after the subject has undergone the advertised workout plan. Hell you might even see the same before and after weight loss picture, featuring the same guy or girl for 2 different systems. Why you’re asking? Because im willing to bet that 90% of these so called amazing workout routines (and their before and after weight loss pictures) and diet plan that promise you a ripped physique in just 2 weeks, 4 weeks or 8 weeks are’t actually 8 week workouts. The owners of these systems, or the marketing departments behind these workout plans, will go scowling the internet looking for pictures of weight loss and slap their brand on them. More commonly though, they’ll take a member of the team who is in decent physical shape and FAKE the before and after photo’s. How do they fake these before and after weight loss pictures? I explain in this video below.
The process to fake pictures of weight loss is simple. The weight loss transformation in the video above was accomplished in just 5 minutes. With no expensive workout plan, no fancy diet, just 5 minutes of my time. Lets take a look at how its done.
The Before Photo
The before and after weight loss BEFORE picture.In the before photo here is a checklist of what you need
- Bloated stomach
- Miserable face
- Bad lighting
- Bad posture
In this before picture I simple stood slouching forward, arching my back to extenuate my stomach. I was breating out to expand my abdominals to enhance the fat look. The bad lighting hides any and all of your definition and the miserable face makes you look exactly that, miserable. In these marketing campaigns, advertisers play on your emotions that because you’re over weight, or super skinny that you’re miserable and unhappy. I took photo after hours of just sitting on my pc. If you can get a bad quality camera that will also help. You can make your before photo even worst with some of these following tips.
By overeating “bad food” you can bloat yourself even more. Stuffing your face with carbonated drinks, anything fizzy, will give you a bloated look. Combine this with overeating, whether that’s over eating on boiled rice, chicken breasts, pizza or ice cream, if you over eat you’ll feel stuff and your belly will look bigger. Doesn’t matter if its healthy food or not. Make sure you haven’t got a pump, so just sit around for a few hours. Then go into a room with bad lighting and shoot away.
The After Photo

So you’ve got your before photo. Looking like a couch potato, miserable, unhappy with life and wanting a weight out. What will make you happier? Well a before and after weight loss picture to show off on the internet right This is what I did for my after photo:
- 50 push ups
- 1 set of 15 bicep curls
- 1 set of 15 dumbbell shoulder presses
- Good lighting conditions
Literally this photo was taken 5 minutes after. My before and after weight loss picture was done in the space of 5 minutes. By working your chest, biceps and shoulders, it will give you an upper body pump, increasing vasculatiry, getting blood into the muscle and making them look bigger. This makes the before and after weight loss look even more impressive. When you have your pump, its also important to hit a good pose that enhances your physique. I took a side shot for my before weight loss picture, so I took a side chest photo for my after weight loss picture. Im now looking a lot more muscular and have some vascularity in my arms.
