Ever heard the statement: "I'm not fat, I’m just big boned?" Perhaps you’ve even said it yourself.
Unfortunately, the "big-boned" theory is one that’s all too commonly misconstrued by people as justification for being overweight or obese when, in all actuality, they are simply carrying too much body fat. Now, don’t get me wrong, there are certainly people with a predisposition to carrying excess fat and many who naturally have big bones, so being slightly overweight may be inevitable for some. However, the average person is not predisposed to weighing in excess of 300 pounds.
