05/25/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Wednesday

On 5/19, 20 our blog dealt with measuring fat.  I got a question from a reader asking why we spent two days discussing this.

Fat is unhealthy on several different fronts:

-It gets more difficult as you get older to get rid of.  I can attest to that!

-It fills in areas across the body where muscles curve into one another.  It also pads around organs which results in those organs performing less efficiently; hence putting stress on them.

-Fat numbers can predict fat distribution and if you are at greater risk for certain diseases.

Don’t use information about your body fat percentage to emotionally beat-yourself-up.  Use the information to motivate your progress, and your plan of how to get your body fat percentage where YOU want it to be. 

Begin an evaluation about your nutritional choices and make a dedicated effort to eat clean.  You will see those body fat percentage numbers reduce by combining efforts in your exercise and eating plans.
