BODY FAT AND EATING DISORDERS 2 Body Fat and Eating Disorders Growing up in the twentieth century has seen a generation that are becoming more Overweight and Obese. There are numerous contributions to these issues and an abundant amount of risk factors associated with having excess body fat or being obese. Many children do not exercise enough and do not eat right. Some teenagers and young adults develop eating disorders to prevent becoming overweight and obese. Being abnormally underweight or largely overweight are both serious issues with numerous health factors associated with them. Some risk factors associated with having excess body fat or associated with obesity are high blood pressure, heart disease, hi8gh cholesterol, Type 2 diabetes, stroke, cancer, etc. The longer someone has excess body fat increases their risks of these health factors (Grosvenor & Smolin, 2015). The location of the body fat also determines the severity of the issue. For example, fat that is under the skin (subcutaneous fat) is less dangerous than fat that surrounds major organs (visceral fat) (Grosvenor & Smolin, 2015).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
