Celebrity Lena Dunham displays her Body Type Three (BT3) shape figure/physique while enjoying a day off at social gatherings. The full development of her vertebrae (posture) and muscles/muscle mass is definitely debatable. The excess fat (being overweight or obese) and skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, loose skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, normal weight obesity) are obvious throughout her body. It is visible from her upper thoracic vertebrae down to her lumbar (abdomen and lower back) and sacrum (buttocks and upper legs/thighs), no less, and likely her cervical and coccyx vertebrae as well.
Science recognizes that one (1) pound of muscle mass burns six (6) calories per day, but one pound of fat/skinny fat only burns two (2) to three (3) calories per day. Which directly affects metabolism (the more skinny fat and fat, the slower the metabolism). Anywhere there is skinny fat on the body, the tendencies are higher to put on excess fat weight.
Diet, exercise, lifestyle, metabolism (BMR), and BMI matter. But so do genes/genetics/DNA. It will be interesting to see how well Lena Dunham manages and maintains her weight and body shape figure/physique as she ages.
Lena Dunham Figure/Shape – BT3
HBO television series Girls creator and Emmy Award-nominated (4x) writer, actor, and director Lena Dunham shows off her Body Type Three at the pool. As there currently is no FDA-approved way to get rid of any type of skinny fat, including cellulite, diet and exercise, particularly properly building muscles/mass, are the key to reducing skinny fat. Although, by no means an easy thing to do.
Body positive/body positivity is not an acceptable excuse to normalize the disease of obesity and disregard health. At the same time, fat shaming, hating, trolling, and bullying are not appropriate and will not be tolerated. The key to real health is acceptance of your specific scientific body type (genetics) and then figuring out the best diet, exercise, and lifestyle to successfully manage it for the short and long term to achieve sustainable health.
Her net worth is estimated to be $12 million. You can catch her on social media including Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. See more Hollywood writer, director, actress, and producer Lena Dunham celebrity Body Type Three (BT3) photos on Google.
