Default "You can be skinny and still be obese."

That was the teaser anyway.

Fairly long term study of about 2,000 people (mostly female) that tested participants' metabolomes.

Long PITA to read, but what it looks like to me is "apple bad, pear good" and when people lose weight their metabolome reverts to normal.

They divvied up participants into 5 groups...for 3 groups the metabolome was in line with BMI and for 2 outlier groups the metabolome was not congruent with BMI.

One group had a BMI that was higher than predicted by their metabolome (healthy fat people) and one group had a BMI that was lower than predicted by their metabolome (unhealthy skinny people).

The healthy fat people had a hip to waist ratio like the normal weight/healthy metabolome people. The unhealthy skinny people had more visceral fat and higher triglycerides.

This hasn't bee news for about a decade and part of the reason women are relatively spared from a lot of metabolic diseases is their greater hip and thigh fat which is metabolically less active
