Think Being THIN, is Healthier than Fat, NOT SO FAST...
Women, it's time to reassess your views on being that size 6 and being HEALTHY. One thing I see everyday in my personal training clients as well as my LIFT TO THRIVE SENIORS especially the WOMEN, is this on going belief that "SKINNY IS HEALTHY, AND THICK IS FAT AND UNHEALTHY." But this is just not true.
There's a huge misconception that is not limited to teens or women ages 20-45, personally I found there's NO AGE LIMITED ON THE SUBJECT. But the older you get, the more you need to realize that lifting weights, doing functional fitness training, fueling your body with healthy foods, healthy doses of water to keep your body hydrated and REST, IS THE FOUNDATION THAT WILL KEEP YOU NOT ONLY ALIVE, BUT HEALTHY TO ENJOY YOUR LIFE. Because to me, what's the sense of LIVING A LONG LIFE, if you're PLAGUED WITH CHRONIC ILLNESS AND DEPENDENT ON THOSE YOU LOVE, DUE TO THE CHOICE OF NOT TAKING CARE OF YOUR HEALTH, MIND, BODY SOUL.
“Strong” enhances your life and makes you more functionally fit and capable. “Skinny,” if it comes from calorie restriction, under-nutrition and too much aerobic exercise, makes you weaker and less able to do your daily activities without feeling fatigued. Of course, there are people who are naturally thin but even naturally thin people can benefit from strength training." ~ Cathie Friedrich
