The One True TheDavid: 1) Realize that exercise programs, nutrition instuction and behavioral therapies qualify as medical treatments.


Ask an insurance company about that.

If you want to be prudent, check the wind direction, what phase of the moon it is, and whether or not Queen Elizabeth is wearing blue today.

jodieleigh: Magorn: jodieleigh: Magorn: jodieleigh: I'll stick to my diet, exercise and 21.6 BMI, thank you.

Psst. your BMI is utterly meaningless.  It was invented by a UN agency who was worried about the earth's "Carrying capacity"  for humans and wants to encourage smaller people so we'll theorectically consume less resources.  It is, in no way, shape, or form, an indicator of overall "healthiness" as most NBA and NFL players are considered "morbidly obese" when you apply BMI formulas

Psst. It says one thing to me ... I ain't no farkin' fatty.

believe that if you like, and if it comforts you, believe that your are especially healthy, and believe that is solely due to your superior sense of virtue and  iron will.   But none of those things are necessarily true.  You may have the genetics for a metabolism tht doesn't store excess body fat, and good for you, but I doesn;t necessarily mean you are healthy.  There may be plaque in your arteries, or fat building up around your liver, that will prove fatal to you someday, but you'll find that out entirely too late

You sound fat. Very.


Nope.  I was once.  Lost 100lbs in just under 30 months 10 years ago, and lost another 40 recently, in the process found out everything i believed about diet, exercise, and health was basically wrong.  Skinnier than I've been since i was a Freshman in HS now (BMI now classifes me as on the edge of overwieght and normals these days ),  but overall far less healthy than when I was over 3 bills in a lot of ways when my strength and edurance were much higher than they are now.

Mine is Kentucky Medicaid through an MCO. Look up everything that is included when you have 5 minutes to spare.

Why thank you, I am. I was going to post my exact waist circumference measurement and my exact body fat % done with a Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) ... but of course, I don't want to sound like a braggart nor do I care to hear the retort from the fatties of how unreliable these are as well.

randomjsa: Relatively Obscure: Is this that study that everyone in the universe is calling trash except the author and a few newspapers?

The person who figured out tectonic plates was laughed at and ridiculed for it until the day he died.

There was a doctor who suggested medical students should wash their hands after handling dead bodies before going to help deliver babies because he noticed certain "correlations", and he was basically thrown out for suggesting it.

Then there was this guy who suggested spontaneous generation was bogus and all the smartest people in the world said he was a fool.

Now, what were you saying? This study may very well be bad but at least give it time to be proven such.


I was saying that the study is bad, unless you really wanted to know that people with terminal cancer and full-blown AIDS are less healthy and may have shorter lives than someone with a few extra pounds.

Insurance is one of my state's two biggest exports.
