Celebrity Ashley Graham displays her Body Type Three (BT3) shape figure/physique while at the beach. The full development of her vertebrae (posture) and muscles/muscle mass is debatable. The obvious excess fat and skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, loose skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, normal weight obesity) affect no less than her upper legs/thighs, buttocks, middle and lower back, stomach, and upper back arms, indicating at least likely underdeveloped sacrum, lumbar, and thoracic vertebrae.
Science recognizes that one (1) pound of muscle burns six (6) calories daily but one (1) pound of fat/skinny fat only burns two (2) to three (3) calories. Which directly affects metabolism (the more skinny fat and fat, the slower the metabolism). The excess fat and skinny fat on her BT3 (female or male) has its disadvantages, including slowing down metabolism which leads to higher tendencies towards being overweight and obese.
Diet, exercise, lifestyle, metabolic rate (BMR), and BMI matter. But so do genes/genetics/DNA. It will be interesting to see how well Ashley Graham manages and maintains her weight and body shape figure/physique as she ages, especially after giving birth to three children.
Ashely Graham Figure/Shape – BT3
Sports Illustrated plus-size model Ashely Graham shows off her Body Type Three shape/figure at the beach with family and friends including her husban Justin Ervin. She began modeling at the age of 12, with her career officially beginning when she signed with Wilhelmina Models after attending a model convention. She switched to Ford Models in 2003.
Her star did not begin to rise to fame until her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover debut in 2016. She authored her first book a year later focused on body positivity called A New Model: What Confidence, Beauty, and Power Really Look Like and gave a TED Talk advocating for self-acceptance in regard to body shape and image.
Over the years she has appeared in and on numerous magazine covers including YM, Vogue, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar, and Bust while walking for the likes of international designers Prabal Gurung, Michael Kors, Love Mag, Dolce and Gabbana, H&M, Tommy Hilfiger, Rag and Bone, and Christian Siriano, to name a few. As a television personality, she has backstage hosted the Miss USA 2016, Miss Universe 2016, Miss USA 2017, Miss Universe 2017, and Miss Universe 2018. As well, she has been an official judge on America’s Next Top Model on VH1 and hosted the American Beauty Star in 2019.
Plus-Size Model Ashely Graham Body Type Three – The Body Positive Movement
Ashley Graham’s body shape figure benefits from her demanding modeling and television responsibilities which likely help increase her metabolism. Thus, burning more calories to assist with keeping excess fat at bay. Recently welcoming twins into the world, she candidly spoke about the changes to her body after giving birth.
Properly building muscles/mass is the key to successfully reducing skinny fat/cellulite, but by no means an easy thing to do. Weightlifting and yoga are excellent resistance exercise choices. Which, along with steady-state, medium-intensity cardio exercise like walking or hiking, will help burn more calories.
Body positive/body positivity should not be an excuse to normalize obesity and disregard health. That being said, trolling, fat-shaming, hating, and bullying are also completely unacceptable. Understanding scientific body type (genetics) is the key to successfully managing and maintaining your specific body type.
She is estimated to have a net worth of $18 million. You can catch her on social media including Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. See more television personality and SI model Ashley Graham Celebrity Body Type Three (BT3) photos on Google.
