Do you need to lose weight to become healthy?

Do you need to become healthy in order to lose weight?
As you may know, I’m a huge fan on Sean Croxton from Underground Wellness. It was in his book, the Dark Side of Fat Loss that I first realised that we generally have things the wrong way around.
We think that we need to lose a few kilos in order to look healthy. But in fact, our body won’t release excess weight (on a permanent basis) until it’s actually healthy. (Read more about Sean’s take here)
Being thin doesn’t automatically make you a healthy specimen of the human race!
As you may be aware, a common theme of mine is stressing (note the choice of word!) the importance reviving traditional approaches to heal our modern day ailments. Personally, I struggle with hormonal balance, and I’m still slowly, slowly, slowly recovering. I believed I was giving my body the best possible shot through really nourishing food, meditation and yoga. But perhaps there is still a missing puzzle piece?
