It's true. A Japanese study confirms it. According to a 12 year study conducted by a Japanese health ministry team led by Tohoku University professor Ichiro Tsuji, chubby people at age 40 can expect to live up to seven years longer than skinny people.
Now that is a study I can go with.I was somewhere in my fifties when it came to my attention that I weighed 30 pounds more than I did at the age of 20, in spite of quite normal eating and exercise habits.
My efforts to lose weight soon made it clear to me that the only way I was going to get back my girlish figure was to spend two hours a day at the gym, have a tummy tuck and never again chow down on anything but salad, oats and groats. It was a sacrifice I was unwilling to make.
So here I am chubby, aging, and vindicated at last. I could not be happier. Yipeeee I'm going to live longer than all the skinny women I know and I haven't had to give up ice cream.
Thank you Professor Tsuji. We chubby people of the world think you are a god:-)
