The Real Science of Weight Loss and Body Fat Distribution

Musculoskeletal Changes and Weight Gain/ Weight Loss

Differences in the Shape of Musculoskeletal System between Lean and Obese People


Theories of weight gain and weight loss based on calories, energy balance, genetics, insulin resistance etc. makes it impossible to see things that are in front of our eyes.

Until now in regard to obesity, everyone has seen only pictures portraying obese people eating. It doesn’t matter how these pictures have nothing to do with reality, everyone still likes to see only pictures of obese people eating.

The first impression is that: the more a person is affected with excessive body weight, the more they are affected with an excessive inward curvature of the lumbar spine, excessive outward curvature of the thoracic spine and excessive inward curvature of the cervical spine.

The reality is; the more a person is affected with an excessive inward curvature of the lumbar spine, excessive outward curvature of the thoracic spine and excessive inward curvature of the cervical spine the more they are affected with excessive body weight.

The graphic illustrations on this web page is to point out on the things that are in front of our eyes. The first essential step to understand weight gain/weight loss, obesity, underweight etc. is to see things what are in front of our eyes.


“The hardest thing to see is what is in front of your eyes.” - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749 –1832)

Adverse Musculoskeletal Changes and Weight Gain

Every single person affected with obesity is at the same time affected with adverse musculoskeletal changes.

Reversal of unnatural musculoskeletal changes is an essential factor in reversing obesity.

Every person, whether it is a child or an adult that is affected with overweight or obesity, has an increased rib cage circumference. (They also have an excessively rounded shape of the chest).

Children and adults of normal weight or underweight have a normal shape of the chest.

There is no child or adult that is affected with obesity that hasn’t been affected with an unnatural round shape of the chest.

It is wrong to believe that poor posture is caused by obesity. In reality obesity is caused by poor posture (standing, walking and sitting posture) and poor walking and running gait.

Excessive weight gain (obesity or overweight) is a symptom of adverse musculoskeletal changes and poor walking and running gait.

Adverse musculoskeletal changes are symptoms of poor posture (standing, walking and sitting posture) and poor walking and running gait.
