Can you be overweight and healthy?

November 7, 2007

If you are worried you are overweight, you might want to read this article in today’s New York Times.

It seems the evidence shows that people who are slightly overweight (25 to 29 on the controversial body mass index scale) are healthier and succumb to fewer diseases than do people of normal weight (BMI ideal of 20 to 25).

Of course, if you’ve read anything here or at Butterfly Transformation you’ll know that evidence like this doesn’t make you change your eating or feel any better about your body. Interesting reading, non the less.
