"Skinny fat": A condition that's nature's backhanded compliment of making you think you look good.
The scholars at Urban Dictionary define "skinny fat" as "when someone is thin and looks great in clothes, but is all flabby underneath." That definition makes it seem like it's strictly a cosmetic annoyance but having a higher body fat percentage can put someone at a higher risk for health complications, like high blood pressure, diabetes and even an earlier death.
Stephanie Mansour, the founder and CEO of Step It Up With Steph!, is a lifestyle and weight loss coach. She teaches people how to take the right steps on their journey to transforming their bodies. Newsy's Cody LaGrow asked the coach a few questions about his struggle to beat the bulge.
