Re-evaluating an extra 10 pounds

by on

This should come as good news to anyone struggling to keep up with a demanding daily exercise schedule—and feeling guilty when schedule conflicts get in the way of gym time:

A body of research, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, suggests that there’s little risk to carrying a few extra pounds. And there may even be some benefit.

People who are 10 to 15 pounds overweight appear to have no greater risk of dying than those of “normal” weight.

Other studies have shown that those who are overweight are no more likely to die from cancer or cardiovascular disease. Being a little overweight may help stave off osteoporosis. And it can make you look younger, too.

Experts still assert that obesity is a serious health issue. But there is a big difference between carrying a few extra pounds and being obese.

--Adapted from “A Case for Those Extra 10 Pounds,” Katherine Rosman, The Wall Street Journal.
