Yes you really can be fat and fit, new study finds9/5/2012
You can wipe that smirk off your face the next time an obese person brags about being fit. A new University of South Carolina study found that fat and fit is a real thing, not some lame excuse to scarf down another doughnut. Data from over 43,000 people showed that "metabolically fit" overweight folks who exercised and didn’t suffer from high blood pressure, cholesterol or elevated blood sugar were at the same risk for heart disease or cancer as those with trim bods. While in many cases obesity increases the risk of coronary heart disease and other nasties, it seems exercise (groan) is still most important. [Source]
