The Cost Of Getting Lean: Is It Really Worth The Trade-off?

You know that image you’ve been sold by the fitness industry? The idea that tight abs, a firm butt, and weighing 105 pounds is healthy?

Well, you’ll be surprised how unhealthy that can be and how much distress it can put on the body, even shortening lifespan if done incorrectly! Is the cost of getting lean really worth it? The answer is maybe yes, and maybe no.

Getting in shape requires making sacrifices of time, and requires making and sticking to strict priorities. However, severe changes in diet and nutrition and fad diets may do more harm than good, not allowing the body to adjust properly.

There is also such a thing as being too lean, which can cause health complications. If taken too far, attempting to get lean can lead to anorexia and other emotional issues related to your self-image.

Can you really look the way you want to look and also truly enjoy your life to the fullest? This infographic below, provided by Precision Nutrition, explores these questions and more.
