Dr. Chip Lavie, author of The Obesity Paradox, reveals why thinner can mean sicker and heavier can mean healthier. Find out why being oveweight or obese on the BMI scale can protect those with heart disease, diabetes, HIV, arthritis, cancer, and more. You’ll also learn what REALLY matter when it comes to longevity. And why endurance training can actually shorten your lifespan. 


Here's what we talked about: 


2:26 – How Dr. Lavie discovered The Obesity Paradox almost by mistake. Do overweight, obese or people of normal weight have the better prognosis?  

 

8:29 – Death by weight: What a huge study of 2.9 million people showed us about weight and mild obesity. 


10:42 – Are the obese doing really well or is everyone else just really bad? The connection between your BMI, body fat percentage and muscle mass. 


16:24 – Some surprising stats bust through common myths about weight and disease and what it means to be “metabolically healthy” regardless of how much you weigh. 


19:32 – Calories in vs. calories out: a different take from Dr. Lavie and where/when he thinks we’ve gone wrong. 


24:00 – What fitness really means when it comes to the obesity paradox and why a little extra weight does not equal doomsday. 


27:27 – Does it matter where your fat is? How some of your fat could be protecting you (thank your thighs!) 


32:15 – FIT vs. FAT. Which one always wins the fight for your health and why. 


35:39 – “Fit” isn’t as hard as it sounds: the best ways to move (and eat) to maximize long-term benefits. 


42:33 – The future of fat: Will we ever be able to accept it? 


44:46 – The obesity overlap and why it is so hard to prove whether or not it is a disease or just guilty by association.
