🥗 High Weight Is Not Equal To Obesity 🥗
Many girls shout to lose weight when they see that their body weight surpasses 110 pounds. 🎽So does a high weight mean obesity?
🌟 Before losing weight, you should make it clear that weight is not only affected by the appearance of fat and slim but also affected by the proportion of the muscle content and bone size. At the same time, our health can not be defined only by our weight. Pursuing low weight is not the ultimate goal of weight loss.
💬 Strange Scene
There are two guys with a height of 6 feet and a weight of 192 pounds, one is a fitness enthusiast with well-built muscles, while another one is fatty with high body fat. Why does it have such a difference? ⁉
✅This is mainly because of muscle content and BF% (body fat percentage). Under the same weight, the volume of fat is three times than muscle. Adipocyte is light, but large, while muscle cell is heavy but small. People with a large proportion of muscles, even if they have a heavier body weight, there is no need to go on diet.🏃♂
💁That’s why two people of the same weight, the one who has higher body mass index (BMI) has more body fat and looks obese; the other one who has low body fat rate and high muscle mass looks in better shape.
What Is Body Fat%❓
Now let's learn about the body fat%. It refers to the proportion of body fat weight percentage. It is an objective method to evaluate the weight-reducing effect.
The standard body fat% of males ranges from 15-20%, while body fat% of females ranges from 20-25%. That’s to say, when a male with a body fat% of more than 20% and females with a body fat% of more than 25%, they will be defined as obese.
📣On the other hand, the lower the body fat rate doesn’t mean the better. If the body fat rate drops to 13%, various body somatic functions problems may happen.
