A recently released 10-year study of a half million Americans shows that the moderately overweight have a higher chance of dying earlier than those who are not overweight.

I was in that "moderately overweight" category a few years ago, but today I have a Body Mass Index of 23, probably due primarily to my cycling at least 50 miles a week. Cyclelicious applauds the efforts of the Amazing Shrinking Man who work to encourage daily activity for all of us to improve our health.

I second that applause
A second bonus for you is that inactivity also kills people too early and is a risk factor just as overweight.
