The Results of Dieting...
Eating too much and not eating enough can create obesity.
Yo yo dieting can create obesity.
Below you'll see four measurements for a person over a span of five years.
Notice the Weight. It's really only went up about 4 lbs in 5 years. We would think that's great!
Notice the Body Fat percentage. It's also went up over 4%.
Notice the Lean Body Mass percentage. It has went down over 4%.
This person (over five years) has essentially GAINED 7.87 lbs of BODY FAT and LOST 3.27 lbs of LEAN BODY MASS.
But if we simply look at the scale, it would appear this person has only gained 4.6 lbs in five years. Which would sound really quite good!
Within another five years the body could function less optimally more and more and spiral into over 20 lbs of body fat added! I've seen it happen so often!
When we lose LBM and gain BODY FAT our body does not function as optimally as it used to.
Fat cells make different hormones than muscle cells. Fat cells do NOT burn energy like muscle cells. As we age and this sort of thing happens, we wonder why we feel so crappy!
Fat cells do NOT just sit there and stay stored. When we have too many or too large of fat cells they actually shut down the beneficial hormones that were helping your body to regulate properly which can lead to Type 2 Diabetes and heart disease!!!
Your body needs to have a healthy composition to function OPTIMALLY!!
Get in and get measured and have a baseline to follow.
Stay tuned for more!
