Fat May Still Be Fit

As I ahve written, connect to yourself to see where you are at...This may pertain more to women, which have  a lot more fat, on average, than men have.

The Perfect Female Genitalia

Well, this isn't exactly fitness but it has to do with the mind-body connection:

This has been going on for years. I am all for looking and feeling great. I happened to reread Naomi Wolf's The Beauty Myth lately, though, and this is perfect for it.

Psychology Today Article on Men and Curves

http://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/201206/eternal-curves

This article author states that human women have seven times more body fat than any other animal but hibernating bears or penguins facing a harsh winter. He goes on to say that lower body fat deposits are depleted most in pregnancy and that fat and stored DHA here may be directly proportional to brain health and intelligence of the infant, whose brain is seven times larger than that in other animals.However, women today on average have less DHA in their fat than they did 40 years ago because of diets containing more omega-6 than omega-3 fats.
