Isn’t always best to be lean? I mean after all, they say
go for the lean piece of meat if you want to be healthier
and lose weight. It’s not always an easy task especially
when you are obssessed with fried foods and foods
rich in fat.
There are people in this world who are naturally skinny
and don’t gain weight. God has gave this people a true
benefit. I’m proud to say I do taebo one hour or more
each day, so I work for mine. Some people are just
born really thin. My dad was thin about 140 and he
was about 5’6 in height. I take after my dads genes.
Lean means that one has the correct percentage of body
fat for their body type.
There are 5 lean factors:
Lean genes- Look at your parents if your kids. Look at your grandparents if your parents.
If are trim or used to be in their youth, you have a better chance of never becoming fat.
If one or even both parents were over fat than you can still be
lean but you have to work harder.
Body types- Lean and tall body types are typically longer and lighter than
what’s on the growth chart. Ectomorph babies, children and even adults
have piano fingers and long slender type feet. Ectomorphs get more
calories in height than they do in weight. People with ectomorph body
types are hyper metabolizers, meaning they tend to burn off calories
easier and can make the adjustment of their food intake to calorie level.
They eat much and don’t gain weight. These are really blessed folks.
So many people wish they had this trait. Anyways, look out for those
ectomorphs, they some powerful people!
Stocky children and adults are average in height and weight and height
and weight are basically the same percentage on the growth chart.
These square shaped bodies are typically over fat than rectangular
Short and wide persons, known as endomorphs have the best chance
of becoming over fat. And please pay attention to the spelling,
ENDomorphs are fatter than most. It’s ECTomorphs who are
skinner than most. Pay attention to the spelling so ya’ll won’t
be confused. The rare people have both body types.
Metabolism- IF you have a fast metabolism, you have an extra
special body feature. That person burns fat like easily. Just
envision the fat turning into smoke and vapor. Yet, on the
other hand, slow metabolisers burn fat slowly. That’s storing fat.
Body build and what you inherit determines whether you are a
fat burner or a fat storer. Take this case for example:
Two children come from the same exact family, one is slim,
the other is not, yet both eat the same types of food. Susie
Overweight says “No fair. My sister gobbles banana splits,
yet I’m a size 16 and she’s a size 8.
People that’s just life.
Temperament- Active people with much energy take the calories out.
Couch sitters take in the fat. You can observe such tendencies
in an infant. A lanky, wiry, very active baby, moreso one with
active parents, has a very little chance of becoming fat. Mellower,
rounder and quieter babies burn less calories and tend to be
Eating habits- People who eat nutrient dense foods in proportion
to their energy needs are typically leaner. People who eat
an excess of high fat empty calories are less likely to be
lean. Don’t just think quantity, but what is the quality of
food you are eating? Ladies and gents….think about it.
Control body fat.
A person gets fat because they eat more calories than they burn.
You get lean if you burn more calories than you eat. That means
get more excercise.
Stay lean, keep like your treasure chest by eating leaner foods,
eating differently, excercising more or a bit of both. I myself
would rather exercise more and I do, when I eat more than
I always focus on keeping my body revved up just like a train
in full speed. You can do it too.
ANd don’t forget to check out why people get fat..
They have 3 times the risk of being fat if both parents are fat. They
may get 40% of calories from fat that about half that 20-25%.
THe hormone insulin does more than just keep sugar in control , but
it also controls fat.
Ok, haven’t you all come away with new information? I sure have learned
something. The moral of the story is be careful how you eat, what you eat. It’s not all heredity in your leanness, sometimes it’s what you do to yourself. Got it?
