interesting and a little controversial
Thursday, January 03, 2013
NY Times printed an interesting article yesterday about mortality risks and a BMI that registers as overweight--and they don't play out like you would think. Today, it printed an editorial about that study:
This is interesting to me, because my BMI is in the mildly overweight category right now. So, do I want to be thinner because I feel better around 180, or do I want to be thinner because I want to fit an aesthetic model that I've been told is the ideal? Something to think about. I'm not going to give up healthy eating and regular exercise, though. I _know_ that helps me feel better and relieves stress.
