Default No such thing as fat but healthy

Even a tiny bit of flab raises heart failure risk

Compared with lean active men, the hazard ratios were
1.19 (95% CI, 0.94 to 1.51), lean inactive
1.49 (95% CI, 1.30 to 1.71), overweight active
1.78 (95% CI, 1.43 to 2.23), overweight inactive
2.68 (95% CI, 2.08 to 3.45), obese active
3.93 (95% CI, 2.60 to 5.96) , obese inactive.

We didn't need a crystal ball to guess this would be the discovery:

If you're fat, clean up your diet and lose the weight.
If you're a layabout, get off your lazy ass and go exercise.
And if that's a fat lazy ass... you REALLY better clean up your diet and go exercise.

This puts the death knell to the "I'm overweight but I'm healthy 'cause I'm active" nonsense. Bullfeathers!

Time to stop kidding ourselves, folks. Overweight is NEVER healthy. Even the lean lazy as a slug types were healthier than the overweight actives.
