Duriel, I must strongly dispute this claim:  human beings are far more
diverse than this simplistic statement might indicate. There are medical
conditions where even consuming less than 1,000 calories in a day will
have no appreciable short-term effect, and highly negative long-term

There is a saying in the Size Rights community that absolutely applies
here:  over WHOSE weight?  What is healthy for one person may be death
to another, in matters of weight as much as in any other human concern.

now-defunct magazine _Rump Parliament_, and one might say I've got
several dogs in this here fight...)
