For many girls, they want to pursue the concave and convex body, so they will try their best to lose weight. But studies have shown that people who have some meat in their thighs and buttocks are a good thing with normal weight. What are the benefits?
People with some fat in their hips and thighs have a lower risk of heart disease and diabetes than people with fat elsewhere, a new analysis suggests.
The researchers hypothesized that lean people had problems storing fat in a way that their lower body could play an important role in the risk of metabolic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes.
This study focuses on thin people, many of whom have unhealthy metabolism, that is, they have a body mass index (BMI) in the normal range, but they have at least two risk factors for heart disease and diabetes. For example, they may have high blood pressure or insulin resistance, and about 20% of people with normal weight have an unhealthy metabolism.
These people have a particularly high risk of heart disease, diabetes and premature death, even higher than some obese people. Early studies found that people with poor metabolism had a 300 percent higher risk of heart problems or premature death than people with normal weight and a healthy metabolism. The proportion is much higher than that of obese people.
In the new analysis, German researchers analyzed information from nearly 1000 people, including normal weight people, overweight people and obese people, and tested them to determine their precise body fat mass and fat distribution. They found that for people with normal weight, the biggest unhealthy metabolism is low fat in the lower body, in other words, a little higher fat in the lower body is a sign of normal metabolism.
