What's beneath lies

I don't know if you've been following the news lately (I haven't), but I was grabbed by a story that ran nationwide last Friday. The story (found here)
was about a recently-conducted study that found that just because you look thin doesn't mean you're fat-free.

Using MRIs, a group of doctors discovered that many individuals with normal body mass index scores were still living with unhealthy amounts of internal fat. Without exercise, even careful dieters can still stockpiling the fat internally. As Dr. Jimmy Bell says in the article, "Being thin doesn't automatically mean you're not fat."

Crazy, huh?

Of course, the good news is that, scientifically-speaking, now anyone is fair game to be called fatty or lard-bucket. I mean, that's pretty cool.

What's the moral of the story?
Get off your lazy butt and go do something.
It's what's on the inside that counts.
You are what you don't eat.
Take heart - if historically diametrically-opposed fat and thin can peacefully co-exist, why not, say, Israel and Palestine?
You can't win at life.
The anorexics have been right all along - they are still fat!

Thanks Carol! I was quite proud of it - even if it did just kind of fall into my lap.
