Nice Move


I’ve worked pretty hard to lose weight over the last year. But no matter how much I work out or trim down my calories, there are these stubborn last few pounds that refuse to move off my thighs and ass. But if a new study is true, I should probably not be so determined to lose the junk in my trunk, because that weight on my backside may mean that I’m healthier and smarter than your average girl.

In a study conducted by researchers at the University of Oxford and Churchill Hospital in the United Kingdom, it was found that extra body fat in thighs and asses can provide some protection against diseases like diabetes and heart disease, as well as mean that a body has lower levels of cholesterol and glucose. From the study,

“It is the protective role of lower body, that is [thigh and backside] fat, that is striking. The protective properties of the lower body fat depot have been confirmed in many studies conducted in subjects with a wide range of age, BMI and co-morbidities.”

Um, what? Dr. Michael Jensen, director of endocrine research at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, breaks it down in plainer English for us:

If you’re going to have fat, you’re definitely better off if you’ve got some fat in the lower body. If you look at people who have primarily the pear shape, they’re healthy in all the ways that this fat behaves. It’s not just less heart attacks or less diabetes, it’s all these ways we think about fat as an important organ for our health.

Ah, ok. So like, if you’re going to have any fat, it’s better than you have it in your thighs and your ass. Got it. And a bonus on top of being healthier? Having a big ass can mean that you have an excess of Omega 3 fats, which have been proven to stimulate greater brain development.

And you wondered how Kim Kardashian got to be so smart.

There really did used to be 2NOTBrokeGirls, but since one of them spent all of her money on shoes and vodka, there's now just one (financially stable) J, who is too lazy to change her user name. J spends her free time saving the world, one sorority girl at a time (usually while wearing yoga pants), questioning why she decided to go to graduate school, and documenting her love of all things cheese related. You can ask her anything you want about football, using your boobs to get what you want, and pizza at @2NOTBrokeGirls on Twitter or
