    Exactly. Just because being fat causes heart disease that isn't as aggressive as the heart disease a skinny person gets doesn't mean it's a good thing to be fat.
    Isn't it better not to get heart disease than to get a less bad type?

    Although there are a few benefits to carrying around a few extra pounds, they certainly don't compare with the overall benefits of keeping fit and "in shape".

    I wanted to call the show today when Patti was on, talking about her weight problem (particularly the thighs) but couldn't get through. Likely a good thing, for me.
    However, my focus would have been on the book I recently wrote on the subject. It is a mere 23 pages, because there is no filler or sales pitches, etc.

    Check it out online at http://www.303030plan.com

    but it's just as likely that the fat dude has a family history of bad tickers as well.

    It's probably because the fat guy's heart has been working overtime because of the extra weight, so the stress of a mild heart attack is less than it would be on a skinnier person whose heart doesn't have the daily stress

    (personally I'd rather be thinner...5 lbs down ??? to go)

    I might give it another shot but timing is always an issue. How often are they talking about weight problems? :rolleyes: Okay well, maybe more than I want to admit. I'll keep it in mind.
