Did you know it’s ok to have some fat on those bones? Your body was designed to carry a bit around your muscles and organs. It is beneficial for energy storage; keeping us warm; protecting us from trauma; delivering nutrients to the body; for skin, hair, and nail health; fertility; and mental health. While fat has its benefits, most of our population needs to lose fat, not increase fat. So how much is just right? The chart below can give you a general idea of the correct percentage for you. With this being the time of year to reflect and act on your health, feel free to stop in to my studio. I would be happy to test your body fat and give you some recommendations.
Have a happy healthy New Year!
