Is not. Fat and Fabulous is not. Being fat is just bad healthwise.

The findings appear in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.

Fat but healthy' is a myth, new research on weight and heart health concludes
by Study Finds

SOPHIA ANTIPOLIS, France - Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but when it comes to health, a new study finds excess fat is never in fashion. Researchers with the European Society of Cardiology say the idea of being "fat and healthy" is a myth. They say the theory that staying active can counteract the negative effects of obesity is false and even overweight people who exercise still suffer from poorer heart health.

The notion that weight has less bearing on overall health is championed by the body positivity movement, which seeks to end the stigma surrounding being overweight. While fresh analysis of data on more than 520,000 adults does suggest exercise helps to reduce the odds of developing hypertension and diabetes, researchers find being overweight still significantly raises the risk of heart attack and stroke.

In fact, compared to inactive normal weight people, those who are active and obese are still around twice as likely to have high cholesterol. These individuals are four times more likely to have diabetes and five times more likely to have high blood pressure.

"One cannot be 'fat but healthy,'" Dr. Alejandro Lucia from the European University of Madrid declares in a media release.

"This was the first nationwide analysis to show that being regularly active is not likely to eliminate the detrimental health effects of excess body fat. Our findings refute the notion that a physically active lifestyle can completely negate the deleterious effects of overweight and obesity."

I think this falls under the "duh" category. So much wrongthink in today's culture has curtailed what's left of common sense.

But anyone paying attention to facts over feelings should already know this. Or even just paying attention to thier own body.

BMI isn’t a measure of health. It’s a measure of risk for life insurance companies. I don’t know why that doesn’t keep more people awake at night...

Most people I know who are somewhat interested in human health, including 2 of my doctors, pay little to no attention to BMI. That isn't what this is about. Anyone with any self awareness knows if they're fat.

I can't believe this took a study, but I know someone to whom I need to send this. She used those exact words. "You can be fat and healthy."

I’ve sure met a lot of “healthy” fat 30-somethings. The problem is that kind of “health” doesn’t live past 50 and then that’s a horrible last 3 decades if your family has genetics for 80s.

When I worked clubs, that was who all the drunk loudmouths were hitting on at closing time. At 3am she was "hot" you know. Reality didn't strike until they woke up sometime later that day. Don't want and never had anything to do with the likes of that.

*Wake up with her sleeping on your arm and chew it off at the shoulder rather that wake her before you escape.
