TomBAvoider Posted July 10, 2017 Report Share Posted July 10, 2017 Or so says a researcher in this BBC bit. If obese people have health problems, it's only because they of course commony engage in health-negative behaviors, NOT overeating, but "sedentary", "no excercise" etc. If they exercise and limit those behaviors, they are welcome to overeat as much as they can (up until the morbidly obese category where it indeed becomes a health negative), and they'll live just as long as the non-obese (and much longer than the underweight). Furthermore, if you do get CV disease, DMTII, or any number of other condidiotions, you are much more likely to survive as an obese person than as normal weight person (the idea being that obesity is protective compared to nonobese, if you do end up with those conditions): http://www.bbc.com/news/av/magazine-40505399/think-again-there-is-no-obesity-crisis Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
