Well yes, fuller bodies have more success during hard times, when fullness implies wellness/richness.

I never lived through food shortages, never suffered a deprivation time (well, only related to my medical condition but that doesn't count) so when I binge and if I binge is because there's some stuff out there I really like (chocolate anyone?).
I guess there should be some distinction made between fuller figures, overweight bodies and obesity because there's no way a size zero could be healthy for every single woman out there. I'm finding some equilibrium with my weight now after so much effort and I'm willing to work my ass out in order to get a firmer, toned body with o loose skin but my final goal is to live a healthy life and if that implies I'll never get rid of some fat so be it: I'm tired of punishing myself for not being able to fit into some old skinny pants.
No limits, only my will and the worlds I build.
