Fellow One Research lead scientific researcher, Marc Nelson, joined e360tv Own Your Wellness podcast host Julie Ann Meyer to discuss fat and skinny fat in relation to Body Type Science. The show began with Marc Nelson’s background. He talked about how he was inspired to pioneer Body Type Science after first noticing how different his body was starting around age eight.
Upon realizing that he had skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, loose skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, normal weight obesity) all over his body, he asked his parents and doctors why he had so little muscles/muscle mass as per the mainstream science and medical doctor Standard Scientific Human Body Anatomy Book Body Type One (BT1) image found in any scientifically approved human body anatomy book. They had no answer. Further, as obesity is genetically common in his family and he was such an active kid and teenager that he was always well within his safe BMI (Body Mass Index) weight range, no one including the doctors gave it a second thought.
Lacking all that muscle/mass led to many hardships including normal weight obesity, obesity, and relentless bullying.
The conversation addressed the three mainstream science and medical doctor body type standards and why they are inaccurate. Moreover, the debunked unscientific, baseless, arbitrary, and subjective shapes that are the somatotype three body types — endomorph, ectomorph, mesomorph — along with the unfounded hormone body types, Kibbe body types, triangle body types, 10 body types, etc. were clarified. Things then shifted to The Four Body Types and how common, unrealistic physical body type expectations, in general, directly, negatively affect diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices as well as emotional and mental health.
Body Type Science, The Skinny of Fat – Own Your Wellness Podcast with Julie Ann Meyer
Social media is a big part of the problem. With the rampant, dishonest spreading of fake filtered and Photoshopped body images, people are led to believe and make unhealthy diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices to try and meet impossible body type expectations that their genetics simply will not allow. The discussion continued on, delving into how Body Type Science helps alleviate the confusion, disinformation, and nonsense allowing the individual to scientifically understand, determine, and identify their real body type.
Which subsequently helps the individual make healthy science-based diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices, thus leading to improved mental, emotional, and physical well-being in the short and long term. All of which are accomplished using current science-based tools including the online Scientific Body Type Quiz and Scientific Weight Loss Programs. Sprinkled into the conversation was the state of the world including sustainability relative to climate change, population/reproductive management, and the global health crisis, especially the obesity epidemic.
