Obese Vs. Normal Person
Read all of this excellent piece by Dr. Peter Janiszewski.
The bottom line:
Although a fair number of obese individuals may have a perfect metabolic profile, it appears they may still experience negative consequences of their excess weight. Furthermore, weight loss achieved via lifestyle intervention appears to still bring about some metabolic benefit among previously healthy obese individuals. Given the numerous non-metabolic benefits of weight loss, all obese individuals certainly have something to gain from a modest reduction in body weight as achieved by a healthier lifestyle.
I am staying on my low fat diet and will continue to run/exercise – thank you.
