    A “little” heavy, not morbidly obese. Of course, think “Dinner with Roul.”

    Tell that to the football players. According to the BMI chart, every single one of them is “obese”.

    ^I noted the difference between body fat and muscle mass relative to BMI on another thread. “Morbidly obese” has an actual relationship to body fat, not just BMI. Which, ever seen how much excess skin often has to be surgically removed after folks go through extreme weight loss? Talk about “gross”!

    Really flawed study. Didn’t take into account the reason the early morbidity subjects were " not overweight). Didn’t control for causes of weight loss such as cancer or HIV.

    I agree with MontyForTyrant- My grandfather passed away at 96. He was a Captain in the Seattle Fire Dept for almost 20 years. He worked out every day, had a pool and swam all the time. He was a big man, 5,10" and 300 pounds. His co-workers and friends always said he should loose weight. Well he attended all of their funerals and literally was the last man standing. I believe he is a great example of how to be large and in shape. By the way, he was a fireman before they wore masks. Breathing in all sorts of horrible things. Lived with his wife of 66 years and she smoked 2 packs a day in the house. So you never know. P.S. His firemans pension lasted 3 times longer than he worked there. Thank goodness.
