Celebrity Katherine Heigl shows off her genetic scientific Body Type Two (BT2) shape figure/physique while on vacation with friends and family including her husband Josh Kelley. The full development of her lumbar and sacrum vertebrae and related muscles/muscle mass is debatable. The candid images reveal some skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, loose skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, normal weight obesity) on no less than her upper legs, buttocks, lower back, and stomach, indicating she most likely has at least slightly underdeveloped lumbar and sacrum vertebrae and possibly a thoracic vertebra or several.
Before she gave birth to two of three children, she might have been considered a Standard Body Type One (BT1). Science recognizes that one pound of muscle mass burns six calories daily, but one pound of regular fat (white fat/yellow fat/excess fat) and/or skinny fat only burns two to three calories daily. Which directly affects metabolism (the more skinny fat and/or regular fat, the slower the metabolism). The mostly developed vertebrae, muscles, and muscle mass across the majority of her BT2 is an advantage that Body Type Three (BT3) and Body Type Four (BT4) human bodies (female or male) generally lack.
Diet, exercise, lifestyle, metabolic rate (BMR), and BMI matter. But so do genes/genetics/DNA. It will be interesting to see how well Katherine Heigl maintains her body shape figure/physique as her metabolism slows as she continues to age.
