What It Means to Be “Skinny Fat”

Do you know someone who can eat whatever he or she wants without ever gaining an ounce? No need to be envious anymore, because science says body composition—the ratio of fat to lean body mass—is a greater determinant of health than just plain body weight.

Normal-weight obesity, also known as “skinny fat,” is a growing problem in the United States. These terms describe a person’s body composition that is high in fatty tissue in comparison to lean tissue, while still within normal limits of the body mass index (BMI). Those who are considered to be “skinny fat” do not appear to be overweight; however, they have a high percent body fat, especially visceral fat—the fat that surrounds vital organs.

September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month and Isagenix is leading the charge to help get future generations healthier.

How to make time for exercise

Got a spare two and a half hours to burn? Of course you don’t, but that’s how long the experts say we should spend sweating each week. Make every minute count with these time-saving strategies.

Slice the seconds
If carving out a solid half hour per day for a workout sounds daunting, consider this: Three 10-minute bouts of physical activity will also do your body good. "It doesn’t matter how you slice it, as long as you’re getting 30 minutes throughout your day," says Lauren Shuster, a Toronto-based personal trainer.

This could mean a 10-minute jog first thing in the morning, one at lunch and another after dinner. Not only will you keep your body in calorieburning mode, but you’ll also minimize the boredom that can set in from endless repetition.
