The most interesting aspect of the study is this:

It's better to be extremely overweight than underweight. Obviously very few of us as adults are at risk of being underweight, so I am not trying to position this as a reason to be extremely overweight. But it does hint that running on more food is better than running on less food. Seems obvious, I know.
