BODY SHAPE AND FAT- Body Shape is more important than body weight, both psychologically and physically. Your Best Personal Shape results from a combination of losing fat and building muscle. In this series, you will learn about Body Shape and Fat and how to get your Best Personal Shape.
Whenever you eat more Calories than you Burn, the excess energy is stored as fat. The first place you gain fat is in the abdomen and around the intestines (see slide). As the weight and Body Mass Index go up, you also gain fat in the arms and chest.
Women, but not men, gain fat in the hips and thighs. Getting a healthy Core and losing excess abdominal fat is important for everyone, but for women the amount of upper and lower body fat determines personal shape. Men only gain weight in the upper body and often think it shows strength, but they do not realize that this fat increases health risks. Genetics is also important as identical twins have fat deposited in the same areas even at different body weights. Lower body fat in women is not unhealthy, but many women want to change their shape for other reasons.
There are many different healthy shapes in women (see slide) and you should love your shape whatever it is. Get your Best Personal Shape and Body Fat with Protein-Rich Shakes, Balanced Nutrition, Purposeful Exercise, and a Healthy Active Lifestyle!!
