‘Healthy’ obesity is a transient state: study

The idea of “healthy” obesity is a misleading concept, say leading epidemiologists.

Most obese people become progressively less healthy over time, according to their large population-based study documented in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

It has long been assumed the “healthy” obese phenotype is a stable, physiological state, but early results from the study indicate this is usually just a phase.
