Doctor Oz spoke about what is causing your Cankles. Are Cankles unhealthy? Cankles are when your calf merges straight into your ankle. The guest on Dr Oz calls Cankles “Chubby Ankles” or Chubsters instead.
Causes of Cankles:
Cankle Cause #1: Pregnancy
Cankle Cause #2: Fat Foods
Cankle Cause #3: Heart & Kidneys
Your ankle is made up of a thinner bone on the outside and a thicker bone on the inside, with tendons that wrap around your ankle to help you to move. When the fat cells in your ankle become engorged, you put on extra tissue around the ankle, which causes Cankles or Fat Ankles! If this is causing your Cankles, it is most likely hereditary.
