    Dr. Fisch came in and measured the staff's weight, Jason was the clear cut winner at 50 pounds overweight, Hein was only 5 pounds overweight.....the Doc didn't measure or comment on the Wig's weight, he's cleary a skeleton.

    Being underweight puts people at highest risk of dying, just as obesity does, new research has found.The connection between being underweight and the higher risk of dying is true for both adults and fetuses. This is so even when factors such as smoking, alcohol use or lung disease are considered, or adults with a chronic or terminal illness are excluded, the study found.
    The study, led by Joel Ray, a physician-researcher at St. Michael’s Hospital and the hospital’s Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute, was published today in the Journal of Epidemiology and Public Health.
    Ray’s meta-analysis looked at 51 studies on the links between BMI and deaths from any cause, plus data on newborn weight and stillbirths in Ontario.
    He found that adults who are underweight – with a BMI under 18.5 or less – have a 1.8 times higher risk of dying than those with a “normal†BMI of 18.5 to 24.9.
    The risk of dying is 1.2 times higher for people who are obese (BMI of 30-34.9) and 1.3 times higher for those who are severely obese (a BMI of 35 or higher).

    I lost confidence in this story with Jason being only 50 lbs overweight. Hein being only 5 lbs overweight was just shooting its corpse.

    Howard was sooooo proud of himself saying how he cut out pizza, pasta, bread, cookies and cake as Dr.Fisch recommended to lose weight. Gary piped in with- now you're underweight and proud of it. I think once you reach your weight loss goal you can indulge yourself every once in awhile!

    That Fisch dude was measuring waists and he has a formula but I forgot what it was, and he said for Hein who's 6'2" his waist wasn't that bad and said he needed only 5 pounds to lose and he would be good for his BMI, JD about 10 pounds, Benjy 40 pounds....Blobbin was quiet

    Should have included this in the quote from this study:

    OK...so malnourished people, heavy drug users or alcoholics, smokers, poor people, crazy people, or people with poor hygiene are at as much risk health wise as the obese. yeah, that sounds about right.

    There is a difference between unhealthy and thin. Cutting back on calories and having a low body fat % is not as dangerous as being obese :c

    in fact, studies on caloric restriction (I think they were doing 30%) in rhesus monkeys have shown to help them live a longer, healthier life. longevity...riiiiiiiightttttt???
