Obese And Healthy Possible

Obese And Healthy Possible – Is excess weight fine to have if a person is metabolically healthy? That question has been asked by researchers for some time, and the opinion seems to be split on whether or not one can be overweight and healthy. Metabolic health means that a person has healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels as well as normal blood pressure.

According to one study, people who are obese but healthy are worse off if they lose weight. However, a new study has contradicted these results, stating that if an obese but healthy person loses a little weight it’s beneficial for them and their health. The study, however, does explain how obese people can still be healthy despite their weight.

“Right now, we are in a gray zone. Is it really protective to be metabolically healthy?” said Martin Brochu, an obesity researcher at the Université de Sherbrooke in Quebec. “There’s a huge debate in the scientific literature right now.”

According to Peter Janiszewski, an obesity researcher and recent Ph.D. graduate from Queen’s University in Toronto, “There should be no fear, regardless of what your metabolic status is, of being active. You certainly won’t get any worse with exercise and diet, and you have a likelihood of improving some metabolic risk factors.”
