Can Fat be Fit?

Researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine studied the body weight, blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol readings of over 5000 adults. They found that over 50% of overweight adults and 30% of obese adults had healthy heart profiles.  However, they also found that over a quarter of normal-weight adults had two or more unhealthy readings.

Researchers say where fat is located on the body may be a greater indication of heart disease than overall weight.  They say that fat on the liver may be the most dangerous.
