First topic message reminder :

Consuming a plant-based diet results in a more sustainable environment and reduces greenhouse gas emissions, while improving longevity, according to new research from Loma Linda University Health.

A study and an article, produced by researchers at Loma Linda University School of Public Health, will be published in full in the July issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, and were first presented at the 6th International Congress on Vegetarian Nutrition in 2013.
Based on findings that identified food systems as a significant contributor to global warming, the study focuses on the dietary patterns of vegetarians, semi-vegetarians and non-vegetarians to quantify and compare greenhouse gas emissions, as well as assess total mortality.

The mortality rate for non-vegetarians was almost 20 percent higher than that for vegetarians and semi-vegetarians. On top of lower mortality rates, switching from non-vegetarian diets to vegetarian diets or even semi-vegetarian diets also helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The vegetarian diets resulted in almost a third less emissions compared to the non-vegetarian diets. Modifying the consumption of animal-based foods can therefore be a feasible and effective tool for climate change mitigation and public health improvements, the study concluded.

Jesus and his creepers! I'm agreeing with Bee again.  Shocked 

Totally. You can't eat three healthy meals a day and call yourself fit if you don't exercise regularly (getting your heart rate up and sustaining it for at least 40 minutes) and you can't likewise, expect to eat a ton of sugar and fat and think you're healthy because you exercise.
There are people who are thin externally and "fat" on the inside, for example.
There are solidly "fat" people who are fit - my friend is one of them, overweight, doesn't always eat healthily, but is extremely fit!
