That Donut Just Cost You Five Minutes
I have to admit, I’m in the throes of a really bad baked goods frenzy. It’s been going on for two days, and I’m hoping that it’s just about done. But when I read that a new study proves that even a little obesity takes years off your life, it gave me even more incentive to drop the luscious lemon-poppyseed muffin I’d been craving. The study found that “those who are extremely obese, about 100 or more pounds over a healthy weight, could be shortening their lives by as many as 10 years,” USA Today reports. And those who are 40 lbs. overweight are effectively taking three years off their life. So what’s it going to be? Another serving of french fries or years of happy memories with your grandkids?
