“The interesting thing is that when one evaluates metabolic health, it is often at odds with a person’s appearance,” Dr. Angadi said about his research. “For instance, almost 48 percent of obese individuals and 63 percent of overweight individuals are considered metabolically healthy. Whereas, 25 percent of normal weight individuals are metabolically unhealthy.”

“It is important to keep in mind that the cardiometabolic benefits of exercise and healthy eating occur independently of weight loss,” he said. “Good health is possible at any size.”

Science Cafés are live—and lively—events that take place in casual settings, are open to everyone, and feature an engaging conversation with a scientist about a particular topic. Chandler Science Cafe, first Wednesday of the month, is presented in association with the Arizona SciTech Festival and Gangplank Labs Initiative.

Free, open to the public, all welcome.
