Being thin does NOT mean you’re healthy. Here’s why!

Mumbai, Dec 31 (TOI): If you have a thin friend, in all probability you believe that she is healthy and you are not. While you restrict yourself to take another slice of pizza or go easy on your favorite fries, your thin friend happily takes multiple servings, without having to worry about the weighing scale. Well, it is not as simple as it seems. Here’s a health alert for you, ‘thin is healthy’ is an absurd notion. Here is why...

FAT LEVELS: Even though on the outside it may not seem like it, but thin beings have more fat in their bodies. Studies report that the visceral fat (fat layering our organs) and subcutaneous fat (fat under skin) is way higher in thin bodies than in ‘fat’ or healthier bodies. So, even though they are eating extra pani-puris, remember that it is only loading up the fat in their body. It may not seem so harmful right now, but can and will in the future!

PRONE TO DIABETES: Yes, thin people are more prone to type 2 diabetes than those on the heavier side. This is purely because of their unhealthy eating habits and erratic lifestyle changes. It’s not always good to believe that ‘dieting is not for thin people’.

LETHARGY ISSUES: Thin people tend to have lethargy issues more than healthy people. This happens due to bad eating habits and how this affects their health. For example, if you are thin and keep binging on street food thinking it does not hurt your body, well, it’s time you think again. Your lethargy issues are due to horrible and frequent eating habits!

LOW METABOLIC RATE: Another interesting discovery in our research is that the nutrient absorption is low in thin people. This means whatever food they eat, healthy or unhealthy, their body does not absorb its nutrition. This is not a good thing as this leads to low metabolism which makes them prone to a variety of lifestyle issues like diabetes or cardiovascular diseases.

DEAD SKIN: One major issue with ‘naturally’ thin people is their skin. If they do not practice healthy eating and regular exercise, their skin is bound to show it. Their skin appears to be dull and dry. Afterall, what you put inside your body shows outside as well, right?

LOWER IMMUNITY: A consequent issue is bad immunity. Thin people tend to get sick more often than their healthier friends. This is entirely dependent on their eating habits and how they live their life.
