Are you "Overfat"?

Overfat is a word that describe people who have a body fat level that is harmful to their health. An overweight person has a BMI (body mass index) between 25 to 29.9, while an "obese" individual has a BMI of 30 or above. Even if that individual has normal weight or is non-obese using traditional standards, those with high fat level can still be categorized as "Overfat."

Being overfat will have some seriously negative consequences for a person's overall health since excess body fat is associated with cardiometabolic dysfunction, a clinical situation that can progressively worsen, potentially leading to various common disease risk factors, chronic diseases, increased morbidity and mortality, and reduced quality of life.

A recent study about "Overfat Adults and Children in Developed Countries" reveals that overfat people in the top 30 industrialized countries eclipse the all of the obese and overweight people in the world. In fact, they estimate that 90% of the men and 50% of the children in the US, New Zealand, Greece and Iceland are overfat. In the top overfat countries, researchers found 80% of the women were overfat, too.

The authors of the new study argue that using BMI will not account about 50% of the people who still have dangerous amounts of fat. Those are typically people who have the proverbial beer belly, but are otherwise in decent shape.

Author Paul Laursen, an adjunct professor and performance physiologist at the Sports Performance Research Institute in New Zealand said: "We shouldn't be as much worried about weight, what we should really be worried about is the fat part and where your fat is concentrated."

Abdominal overfat is the most unhealthful form of this condition, since the fat that is in your stomach area grows deep inside your body and it wraps around your vital organs. Your liver borrows this fat and turns it into cholesterol that can sneak into your arteries and start collecting there. When it collects, your arteries start to harden, and when they get hard, this can lead you to having a heart attack or stroke. This is why it is concerning that average waist circumference measures, generally indicative of abdominal overfat, have increased. Despite a leveling off appearance of being overweight and/or obese in some developed countries, the overfat pandemic continues to grow.

This deep layer of belly fat is also what makes your body insulin-resistant, which can lead you to having type 2 diabetes. It can also cause inflammation, which scientists are finding at the root of many chronic diseases and even cancer and Alzheimer's. Excess belly fat can also raise your glucose levels and decrease your muscle mass. You need good muscle mass to help keep good heart health.
