Too Lean? Back Problems?

Are you too lean? Do you have back or other bone problems?

I have some athletic friends that are very lean and also have back problems. Today, during a Google search, I discovered something I have always wondered about, but could never find information about, until now….

“Body-fat percentages are reduced with weight loss. With reduced body fat, your body loses the cushioning effect of body fat in places such as your buttocks and hips. Reduced cushioning in your buttocks may cause discomfort when sitting on hard surfaces and may affect spinal alignment.”
