Don’t rush to run for dessert, this does­n’t apply to every­one.

The human body needs fat — some­times it can pro­long life. This con­clu­sion was reached by the doc­tor Myas­nikov, who expe­ri­enced this from his own expe­ri­ence.

When are extra pounds beneficial?

Doc­tor and TV pre­sen­ter Alexan­der Myas­nikov spoke in his pro­gram about the ben­e­fits of excess weight. Accord­ing to the expert, despite many neg­a­tive con­se­quences, excess weight can some­times pro­long life.

“Sci­en­tif­ic evi­dence says that an elder­ly per­son (over 65 years old) with increased body weight lives longer than with nor­mal weight. An elder­ly per­son needs a lit­tle extra,” said the doc­tor. Myas­nikov empha­sized that los­ing weight in adult­hood is extreme­ly dif­fi­cult, because “the body will fight for every kilo­gram.”

The doc­tor also spoke about his recent trip to Elbrus, dur­ing which, despite good nutri­tion, he was able to lose three kilo­grams. Myas­nikov achieved this result with the help of phys­i­cal activ­i­ty, so he advised every­one to mon­i­tor their diet and lead an active lifestyle.

But is excess weight still harmful?

The the­sis expressed by Myas­nikov should not be mis­lead­ing. Before this, the doc­tor had already spo­ken out about the prob­lem of obe­si­ty, warn­ing Rus­sians. It is believed that an over­weight per­son lives on aver­age 15 years less. How­ev­er, as Alexan­der Myas­nikov not­ed, this is not always the case.

The doc­tor not­ed: recent stud­ies have shown that there is a group of peo­ple who nat­u­ral­ly have a large body weight. Yes, they have fat cells, but they also have nor­mal sug­ar, nor­mal blood pres­sure and nor­mal cho­les­terol, they are meta­bol­i­cal­ly healthy. But thin peo­ple can have a whole bunch of dis­eases.

“If you are thin and have a water­mel­on on your stom­ach, this is already much worse, because this indi­cates meta­bol­ic syn­drome. This sug­gests that dia­betes, coro­nary heart dis­ease, heart attack and stroke are ahead. There­fore, you need to watch your waist,” said the doc­tor.
