Obesity and overweight are two different things, I hate how articles nonchalantly mix the two. If the correct terms were used then it wouldn't really be a debate.

the study says:

metabolically harmless; weight gain as fat in the liver can be harmful
at very low levels,


really what was the point?

we will need a large number of woman that look like her to do baseline tests and then follow them over the next 10 years and compare them to women that are considered to be at a healthier weight


Oh ok so who is the baseline subject then? There's no such thing. So u can't say overweight looks like this and not like that when humans vary so much. I posted her for the person that said thick=fat. The picture is worth all the typing I don't feel like doing.

LOL jesus, y'all be doing the most on these hair, dark skin, and weight threads.  theeeee most.

What's extra about posting a valid example? I don't get it...


bc you act like they're talking about everyone.  it says being overweight is more likely to develop certain issues.  that's all.  and most won't be a thick perfectly figured hourglass forever, eventually, like all of us that fat will transfer to other places where it's less healthy.  and most ppl considered overweight do not have bodies like that and those considered obese certainly don't.  no one thinks a woman like that at age 28 or 30 is having health problems.

I think y'all are mixing up overweight and obese. Most healthy black women fall into this category and if I get up every morning run and eat great everyday you not gone tell me well you're 30pounds heavier than this white lady we used as the model weight so ur most likely to get this that the 3rd...I'm just calln bs on this raggedy vague ass study there are just too many Ifs, buts, and holes where there should be solid info to support the claim they're making. Ya digg?

good question. Not about the study per se, but I often wonder what people who criticize other people's weight plan to get out of their criticism. Maybe someone could explain this too me.

You have to look at your BMI (Body Mass Index) and this comes in ranges based on your Height as compared to your weight.

A healthy BMI is 25, from 25 - 30 BMI is overweight .. but based on how you are built is okay. Meaning if you have a slim frame (like Nicole Kidmen) 25 is good but if you are built like Serena Williams 29 or 30 is more likely your BMI. But Serena is not fat nor in danger of heart attack.

But if your BMI is over 30 .. you are obese and you have a good chance of getting all those illnesses. So if you are Oprah's size or the size of that girl in 'Precious' (who hs gotten much biggee since that movie BTW), yes, you have to try working on it ... because you will likely have troubles.

IMO just try to stay somewhere between 25 and 30, eat well and exercise and you will be fine.
