Everyone wants to be skinny! Do you think that because you’re slim and aren’t carrying extra weight that you’re healthy? Being skinny is just like being overweight. Both pose serious health risks. Skinny might look good but it comes with low muscle mass, compromised immune systems, osteoporosis, anaemia and hair loss.
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, being skinny is not really in your best interest. Studies have shown overweight people or those with body mass indexes of 25 to 30 have a lower risk of dying than people of normal weight and/or skinny people. For too many years the thinking has been a skinny body is a healthy body and a heavy body is not. In fact, if you are a little overweight, but healthy and happy then you are much better off than someone who is skinny and constantly hungry.
