    There's malnourishment either way! It's poignant to look back on the old underweight kind of malnourishment--which was by far the more common/"normal" kind throughout human history.

Good to hear from you--I hope you're well!

    I've always found it interesting how ads back in the day saw women who were skinny as not as attractive as women who were times changed.

Health is important, but focusing too much on a hot body can be harmful.

    All depends on perspective. I will stick to my plan and will not be swayed by advertsements either way.
Even although I am looking "good" The weight that I am still carrying is around my internal organs and I am pre-diabetic.
If you have a body shape of Marilyn Monroe size 14 is OK. Small waist. Therefore no issue with with lifestyle diseases.

    It is kind of ironic how the perception of the public as far as weight goes has changed over the years. I've heard that Marilyn Monroe was a size 14 and nobody would call her overweight.
