There is a quote from "A Few Good Men"

We recently had an editorial in a fairly reputable daily here complaining that people were becoming so obsessed with their fitness and health that they weren't enjoying their life any more.

So I guess the optimum is somewhere between the rather obese mid-western American and overly fitness-crazed urban Swiss.

Those Obesity numbers are so screwed by the medical community they should not be trusted.

They lower the threshold on a whim a few years back to push for more funding. Face it, if people aren't fact, they won't get grants to "help them get thin"

I don't think the medical community has yet settled on a definition of what "obesity" is, nevermind what its effects are.
