Eating Skinny vs. Eating Healthy

Many people assume that if someone is skinny, that they are also healthy.  But this is not always true.  Skinny people usually associate thinness with being healthy.  Because they are skinny, they assume that they are also healthy and that they need not worry about many health issues that overweight people face, such as diabetes, heart disease, and high cholesterol.


The term “cisgender” (often shortened to “cis”) is used to refer to a person whose gender identity is consistent with the sex they were assigned at birth. To fully understand the concept of gender identity, it is important to recognize the difference between sex and gender. Sex refers to a person’s biological and physical attributes, such as their internal and external reproductive organs, genitalia, hormones, sex chromosomes, and secondary sexual characteristics (such as facial hair for males and breasts for females). A person’s sex may be male, female, or intersex.
