Are you MONW? MONW is the latest jargon for ‘Metabolically Obese Normal Weight’ person. By this, you may weigh less in kilos but you may be graded as obese! Probably, the next question popping in your mind is- how can you be obese when you weigh less? The answer is simple. If you eat calorie rich food and are a couch potato, you are ‘metabolically obese’ despite the optimal weight. Your risk to develop high cholesterol, diabetes and high blood pressure is high. Studies show that up to 20% of people diagnosed with diabetes are thin. Refer to link: http://www.therecord.com/living-story/4238710-are-you-a-fat-skinny-person-/
Moral of the story – do not skip the gym or the early morning walk and surely think twice before reaching out for that pizza slice!
