Stop the lie: No such thing as ‘fat but fit’, major study finds

A new study, from the University of Birmingham, involved 3.5 million people, approximately 61,000 of whom developed coronary heart disease. Medical records from 1995 to 2015 were reviewed and everyone should be talking about the results:

The study found that those obese individuals who appeared healthy in fact had a 50% higher risk of coronary heart disease than people who were of normal weight. They had a 7% increased risk of cerebrovascular disease – problems affecting the blood supply to the brain – which can cause a stroke, and double the risk of heart failure.

Even though tests suggested the person was “healthy”, they were much more likely to get disease.

It’s time to stop lying to ourselves that we can be fat AND healthy. Abusing our body like a trashcan never pays off. If you wouldn’t feed it to a child you love, that you want to grow up healthy,

why would you feed it to an adult?
