Celebrity Elle Macpherson shows-off her Body Type One (BT1) figure/shape while on vacation at the ocean with her family and friends. Even after giving birth to two children, the candid images reveal no real signs of skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, loose skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, normal weight obesity) anywhere on her body. The full development of her vertebra/posture and muscles/muscle mass is obvious.
Science recognizes that one pound of muscle burns six calories daily, but one pound of fat/skinny fat only burns two to three calories. Which directly affects metabolism. Having so many developed vertebrae, muscles, and muscle mass assists greatly in terms of metabolism (BMR) and metabolic rate.
BMI and genetics/DNA are important. But diet, exercise, and lifestyle also matter. As she continues to age, it will be interesting to see how well Elle Macpherson maintains her body shape figure.
