Why do some people stay slim without much effort? Have you ever wondered?
They Live Near A Gym
Those living within 1 km of any facility where one can participate in physcial activity weighed less than those who didn’t, according to a recent study in the journal Lancet Public Health. Women and those with higher incomes showed a larger difference. More walkable neighbourhoods also have inhabitants with an average lower weight.
They Fidget A Lot
It seems that any level of physical activity is beneficial. People who fidget do tend to weigh less. This can also be said for those standing, gardening and cooking. All of these more passive activities can keep people more trim
They Eat Spicy Food
Some data points out that eating spicy food can attribute to less obesity. For example, chili peppers may reduce appetite and activate heat which burns fat, therefore increasing metabolism. Some of your thinner friends may be adding hot sauce and chili flakes onto their mesals regularly.
They Live At A Higher Elevation
The higher the altitude the lower the obesity rate. In the USA, those living in Colorado are generally slimmer, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
They Live In A Big City
Although one has easier access to fast food in large urban centers it seems that the walkability of these areas contributes to less obesity. Overall having access to more types of foods lends towards a better diet. So for those of you living in metropolitan areas with a population of over 1 million may have this advantage.
