Is it about caloric restriction or obesity? I could eat 3000 calories a day and burn 3000 calories a day and (hypothetically) be just as skinny as someone who ate 1500 calories a day and burned 1500. The narrative that our metabolism is what kills us would suggest that I'd live longer on the 1500 calorie plan, but everything else I've heard about the benefits of regular exercise would suggest that the 3000 calorie diet would be better.

So... which is it?

My father's doctor told him she has old patients, she has fat patients, but she has no old, fat patients.

    Although he changed his birthdate as he aged, claiming that he had reached his 98th year, it is thought that he was around 84 when he died – still an impressive feat in the 16th Century, a time when 50 or 60 years old was considered elderly.

To be fair, the aristocracy lived hella longer. Europe in the Age of Faith was a long litany of peasants that had less-than-even odds of making it to adulthood and Medicis that routinely made it to their 70s and 80s.
