A very interesting article

http://www.abc.net.au/health/features/stories/2014/04/14/3984799.htm

Particularly this concerning being moderately overweight or obese for us older folk:

Furthermore, one recent US study found being overweight or class-one obese can actually protect people from all causes of death.

"It's been found that in people with all forms of cancer, the bigger they are, the better they do in treatment, because they have greater reserves of muscle and fat at a time when they are under stress," he explains.

For example, a new review by Deakin University, which looked at research carried out on 20,000 people over the age of 65, found those with a BMI between 23 and 33 actually live longer than people with a BMI in the lower end of the normal weight category (between 18.5 and 23).

22.5.

maybe I should be cashing out my retirement account... :omg:


the problem is, when I do put on a couple of lbs, it seems to be in rather unflattering places.

and then my pants don't fit anymore.
