Every woman in my family could have told you this

Fat girls are smarter than skinny girls

Ok- not to hate on the skinny girls. But for the love of Pete- I am tired of hearing how "OMG the fat is going to KILL YOU". Even when science proves otherwise, we are still treated to "But OMG the fat- the scary scary fat!"

So I come from a family full of brainy girls with hips (we need the hips to hold up our gigantic noggins). But maybe we aren't smarter because of the fat- maybe it's because we don't waste time counting calories and starving ourselves. Maybe putting yourself into perpetual hunger mode impacts your ability to think clearly. I mean, we spend a lot of time telling kids that they need to eat breakfast everyday because it makes it easier for them to learn. Couldn't the same thing be true for grown ups?
