You Might be Skinny…But Are You Really Fat?

on March 29, 2011

Body fat is not always something that is obvious; someone can look quite slim, but when they are tested, their body fat is higher than is optimal for their age and gender.

High body fat can lead to many health problems, like high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, diabetes,  heart disease, and  increased types of cancer.
