Audrey Hepburn – Lady By Birth and Nature

There are cases when the person comes from the aristocratic family though their actions and life style have nothing to do with the elite refinement. And on the contrary, people whose ancestors come from medium class or even the marginal but the person proves to belong to the high class of the society with all they do and feel. And again, we face people who are lucky enough to be born to the reputed and ancient nobility and who appear to be the genuine aristocrats. They treat evenly favorably to people from various levels of society. They are willing to give a hand to those who are in need and act as the model of worthy behavior to follow. Yet, we are blessed to enjoy such a talented and unique actress and a beautiful woman as Audrey Hepburn.

Your Perfect Body Weight from the Medical Point of View

Thursday, 11 February 2010

perfect body weightFrankly speaking, today's girls and women who are genuinely concerned about maintaining their normal weight, first and foremost think about it from the aesthetic point of view, while totally neglecting the health factor. Though it's true that excess fat on the tummy, hips and buttocks contributes to low self-esteem, the effect of extra weight on health is even more important. It has long been proven that obesity is not so much a cosmetic problem (especially since men often fall for the sensual Rubens-style curves) as a medical condition. Moreover, it is not an individual but a national problem.

So, why excess body fat is bad from the medical viewpoint? First of all, due to excess weight the pressure on the cardiovascular system increases. It is known that tiny fat particles circulating in the blood as cholesterol of the so-called low-density lipoprotein category can damage the interior walls of the blood vessels and accumulate over time. Gradually, pathological changes in the vessels become more pronounced which results in the deteriorated vessel functionality and obstructed blood flow. This is the pattern of the well-known atherosclerosis (arterial lipidosis). In addition, excess fat gradually replaces the normal tissue fibers of the heart muscle which leads to the thrush breast (fatty degeneration of the myocardium) and, consequently, to the depression of cardiac activity.

At the same time, obesity affects virtually all systems of the human body. For instance, all portions of the small intestine increase in size, functional failures in the hepatobiliary (liver-bile) system occur, spine problems arise due to displacement of the gravity center, the risk of life-threatening respiratory functions (respiratory arrest during sleep) also increases, not to mention the fact that obesity dramatically increases the risk of infertility in women. As we can see, these reasons are more than sufficient to make one maintain normal (or even better, perfect) body weight.

Perfect body weight varies from person to person. This obscure concept should never be confused with the «optimal body weight», because the latter usually refers to the weight which is determined by a variety of arithmetic calculations or formulas. Today, it is obvious that the optimal body weight, as determined by mathematical calculations, and perfect body weight from the medical point of view are two different things. See for yourself: none of the existing formulas for determining perfect body weight takes into account all possible factors contributing to the body weight. Therefore, they can serve only as the rough estimate of a healthy weight, but they cannot be taken as a «template» to strictly adhere to. Currently, one of the most popular and precise mathematical calculations to determine the perfect body weight is Quetelet index (or the Body Mass Index (BMI)). BMI is defined as the individual's body weight in kilograms divided by the square of his or her weight in meters. Normally, the obtained factor (BMI) for women should vary from nineteen to twenty five units.

But even this formula does not take into account the woman's age, or the features of her body structure (whether she is asthenic, normosthenic or hypersthenic type), or any other individual aspects (e.g. nature of physical activity a woman engages into: girls who are actively involved in sports, not to mention professional athletes, will always be a little heavier due to more developed muscle mass). Moreover, none of the existing formulas takes into account such widespread phenomenon as hyper- or hypometabolism, although the metabolism rate has a very significant effect on the body weight. It is obvious that these subtle nuances cannot be covered in a single mathematical formula, hence the conclusion: the perfect body weight is the weight which is best for a specific individual. Nobody knows your own body better than you do. If you're under- or overweight according to Quetelet index, but you are active, full of life and you feel OK, and you have never been prone to obesity (though you have never been on a diet in your life), then you should not attempt to reach that doubtful «normal» body weight.
