Is it really possible that fat can be healthy and thin is not? The answer is YES. According to the report of “The Archives of Internal Medicine”, they compared the weight and the cardiovascular risk factors of 5400 correspondents. And it shows that half of the overweight people and one-third of obese people in the study were “metabolically healthy.” That means that many overweight and obese adults may have healthy levels of “good” cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood glucose. And at the same time one out of four slim correspondents had two cardiovascular risk factors which are typically associated with obesity.
It is said in some studies that treadmill is the best way to indicate healthiness than body mass index. And with this studies just shows that there are proportion of obese and overweight people who are metabolically healthy.
Even with this studies that obese and overweight can be health it is better that people this condition should start doing something fit and more healthy.
Here are some tips from Dr. Mercola Natural Health Articles in achieving optimal weight:
- Tailor your diet to your nutritional type. These are the foods that are right for your biochemistry, and these are the foods that will push your body toward its ideal weight. (By the way, these foods may be high in fat, high in carbs, heavy on protein or heavy on veggies, it all depends on YOU).
- View exercise as a drug. When you’re trying to lose weight, a casual walk here and there is not going to cut it. Many studies find that exercising for one hour, five days a week is actually needed, and I tend to agree with that. There is also strong compelling evidence that strength training and high-intensity anaerobic interval training may be especially effective for weight loss.
- Let go of your emotional blocks. Tools like the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) are your friend and ally when it comes to losing weight. For some, emotional eating is more complex, and an experienced EFT practitioner may be able to help unravel some of your deeper emotional issues.
