A new comprehensive study says there is no such thing as fat but fit.
New York University's Dr. Natalie Azar spoke on "New Day" Tuesday saying:
"Over the last 10 years or so, there have been maybe a few studies that suggested that if you are normal or overweight based on your BMI (or Body Mass Index), that you're not at an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Hence this myth of being obese and healthy. What this study was aiming to do, was not necessarily to debunk that, but to say, well what is it about the BMI, is there something more specific, let's look at the metabolic profiles."
Azar says the major finding from the study is that people who are currently metabolically healthy..but are obese based on the BMI, had a higher risk after 10 years of cardiovascular events.
