Weight Loss is Not Necessary for Health
- Healthy behaviours increase health outcomes, regardless of weight (Matheson, King and Everett, 2012)
- Being “overweight” is associated with lowest mortality rate (Afzal, Tybjærg-Hansen, Gorm B. Jensen, Nordestgaard, 2016)
- There are healthy and unhealthy people in all BMI categories (coming soon)
