*I take it you are not a big fan of athletes or working out at all. Just sit around and let the chips fall where they may. *
I like to work out, and I like to get exercise. It’s fun. I do pay attention to my lifestyle; I’m a student, so the pattern I tend to fall into is pretty sedentary, and I try to work in exercise whenever I can (this semester it’s yoga and broomball, and the gym when there isn’t a broomball game that week).
I still look chubby compared to what people think of when you tell them to envision a ‘healthy’ and fit woman. I’m not trim or toned, but I’m not so fat that I’m going to have back pain or heart problems or put myself at risk for diabetes, and I’m not so thin that I have no stored energy reserves. As long as my body functions well, I’m not going to go out of my way to make my body ‘look’ healthy.
My point was that there’s so much variation between people because of their genetics that there is no one single ‘healthy’ body type for everyone of a certain age and height and sex. You have to look at the individual. If your heart and organs are healthy, if your bones are strong and your joints aren’t too stressed, if you don’t fatigue too easily, you’re probably healthy even if you look like a beanpole. Loading yourself up with huge amounts of extra nutrition can be dangerous (for example, too much protein is really hard on your kidneys).
With logic and reasoning skills like yours, I can see that you are going to do quite well here.
I’m going to assume that wasn’t sarcasm. Thanks.
