    I couldn't help noticing that the article didn't ONCE mention body fat percentage. It just interchangeably used the terms "overweight" and "fat." They don't consider the possibility that "fat" may be bad but BMI is too crude a measuring stick for all but the most obese.

    Of course, it's just a nooz story. Still, last time my doctor launched into the rote "you have to start exercising and loose weight" speech I had to peel off my shirt to shut him up. Seriously, I need a new doctor.

    I'd rather die young and sexy than be out of shape even longer.

    I like that there are articles advocating every lifestyle. I like to pick and choose the articles that tout the benefits of what I'm already doing.

    That's why I watch porn for the articles.
