More Than a Number

Don't get hung up on what the scale says!  There is so much more to being healthy than the number on the scale.


With today’s focus on living healthy, it’s important to remember that there is more involved than just a number on the scale. As part of a culture that is consumed by appearances, normal weight obesity has resulted in a new epidemic of “skinny fat”. “Skinny fat”, also
known as Metabolically Obese Normal Weight (MONW), can be described as a person who appears slim and seems to have an ideal weight but who is toting around an unhealthy level of body fat. Though these people may appear healthy, being MONW can be just as harmful as outright obesity. According to a 2014 report cited in Time magazine, research has found that people with normal BMIs and high body fat are at a greater risk of metabolic issues and death than any other group. In many cases, those who are “skinny fat” are at risk for having elevated levels of dangerous visceral fat that coats the organs, in spite of having little fat overall.

 

To counteract this alarming trend, it is important to have a well-rounded approach to healthy living. A good place to start is with a yearly exam, where doctors can screen for measures like high blood pressure and cholesterol to alert you if something looks off. Proper diet with regular meals and a focus on healthy, naturally sourced foods is imperative. Additionally, strength training as part of a regular fitness routine must be incorporated. While any form of activity is good for you, strength training increases muscle mass, which in turn, burns more fat. Weight training also activates core muscles, encouraging the loss of visceral fat and improving organ function.

 

Follow these tips to continue your fitness journey and remember, being healthy is a lifestyle, not a number.
