The adage, “never judge a book by its cover,” can be tough to put into practice, especially when construed with fitness and health. For example, is it possible to look healthy and be unhealthy? If you pay attention to TV, look at magazine covers or follow social media, it’s possible. The media would have you believe someone thin or muscular, in a general sense, is healthy and fit, while someone not as toned or perhaps considered overweight is often looked at as unhealthy.
Can looks be deceiving? Is there more than meets the eye to health than a number on a scale or a size on a store rack? Absolutely.
