In addition, both excess lean body mass and fat mass may promote chronic disease.
The correlation between fat mass and chronic disease is no surprise, but I would be curious to hear what is the mechanism that causes excess lean body mass to be a factor in the development of disease. Is it just the caloric overload often necessary to maintain higher body weight?

Garrett, do you happen to have the whole study?
