Healthy eating means a healthy body.
Just ask a number of your acquaintances out there, about their first priority in matters of health, and there is a chance that they are going to say that they are bothered about their increasing weight and how they can get rid of the fat accumulated on their bodies.
Naturally, thanks to social demands and the demands of fashion, all of us want a streamlined body. However, obsessing about a fashionably streamlined zero fat body is not something a normally sensible person should do or would do.
Remember that it is necessary for your body to have a little bit of fat present in it in order to keep functioning properly. Nature has provided you with fatty cells, under your skin in order to keep the skin in shape and to provide a cushion for the muscle, tissues and organs underneath.
Also, this fat can be considered to be a reservoir which is going to provide your body with lots of energy in times of starvation.
The cells are going to be used by your liver to keep your body functioning properly, when you do not have enough of food to eat. Actually, this fatty layer was what saved human beings millenniums ago, when they needed to hunt for food and did not manage to capture that sabertooth or mastodon over a long period of time. This layer also protected them from freezing to death.
But nowadays, in the 20 first century, we do not need to go hunting for our daily lamb, or game. We have it easily accessible and that is why, instead of bothering about survival, we are more bothered about getting rid of all that ungainly fat, and our weight.
Incidentally, if you are well-rounded, like that famous comic character Obelix, you would not mind being called chubby. But you are immediately going to get indignant and annoyed, if anybody calls you fat. You may also describe yourself as Jovian, Amazonian, and well-rounded. And if you are an extra large size, you may wish that you were living in medieval times when well-rounded bodies and fat women were considered to be beautiful, as they were the symbol of the fertile mother Earth. Therefore, they were treasured, considered very attractive and also thus desirable.
