Leanness trumps calories?

In addition, both excess lean body mass and fat mass may promote chronic disease.
I found this interesting too. I remember reading an article once that said lean body mass is one of the best predictors of longevity. I think it said that whether looking at age or disease, death occurs when lean mass drops to about 60% of normal.
