Normal-Weight Obesity Linked to Heart Risk Factors

Is Your Weight In Check? Check Again
You may be in the “normal” weight range for your height but still at risk for heart disease.

Compared with their normal-weight counterparts that didn’t have excessive fat, those with normal-weight obesity had higher cholesterol and triglyceride levels, higher blood sugar levels, and higher rates of metabolic syndrome. All these factors raise one’s susceptibility to heart disease.

It’s not necessarily your BMI, but where the fat is stored that is the problem. So keep that fat off your waist, and get some exercise.
