Well Callie, I got news for you, thick thighs, being hip-py and a booty like a black girl has a healthy connection to your heart. (Callie is far from big but comparatively speaking, she's the thickest in the house).
Thanks to research done in the UK and reported by a European news source, keeping the waist small and having a larger hip, butt and thighs protects against heart disease and metabolic disease (like diabetes). I suggest thoroughly reading the article and check the right side of the site for some related articles. Get educated!!
Just in case, I've highlighted a few key points:
- Carrying extra weight on your hips, bum and thighs is good for your health, protecting against heart and metabolic problems
- Hip fat mops up harmful fatty acids and contains an anti-inflammatory agent that stops arteries clogging
- The slower burning hip fat also makes more of the hormone adiponectin that protects the arteries and promotes better blood sugar control and fat burning
- If you are overweight, obese, or if you have a waist size that is increased, it is important to make changes to your lifestyle, such as eating a healthy diet and doing regular physical activity, to reduce your risk of heart health problems
SB: I don't know why they used J-Lo in the article... she's anti-booty!!
SB(squared): Thanks JD for putting me on.
