Well said. I read somewhere that obese people can be overweight, yet malnourished at the same time. We tend to focus too much on size. Health is more important. And I really believe that if we cut out the junk food, our proportions would naturally be limited by good foods and people would weigh less. (you are much less likely to overeat on vegetables and whole grains)
