Being chubby is good
It is not just the health and number of fat people that draw concern these days. The science underpinning the very notion of fatness is looking pretty sick as well. Researchers are starting to concede that a significant portion of "overweight" people may be healthier than they think. They also suspect a similar portion of those who think they are at an ideal weight may be in much worse shape than they know. Doubts about what constitutes an unhealthy weight have been circulating for decades.

As glossy-haired treadmill unicorns continue to pout their way through Instagram with chia-seed recipes and colonoscopy recommendations, women are rejecting their raw food cleanses in favour of a balanced diet that includes the occasional doughnut. But as we move away from the skinny goals of the mids and embrace different shapes and sizes, one group of campaigners has taken things a step too far.
