[Sca-cooks] sugar problems

Who suggested consuming less than 1,000 cal/day?  Where did that number 
come from?  Even a 4' tall, 100 lb, 30-yr-old male has a BMR of 1093!
Now, how about a more average sized person? A 5'5" tall, 150 lb, 
40-year-old female has a BMR of 1417.  So for her to be restricted to 
1000 cal/day would be troublesome.

Can you give some wide-ranging examples from reliable medical sources of 
where 'a healthy weight for one person would be death to another'?  I've 
never heard of such a thing.

'Over whose weight'?  Over their own healthy weight, as determined by 
BMI, for one measure.  That 40-yr-old above has a BMI of 26, within the 
healthy range.  She goes up to 200, her BMI is 33, obese.

We know that obesity leads to a variety of medical problems: 

    * Certain types of cancer
    * Diabetes
    * Emotional or social problems
    * Gallstones
    * Heart and vascular diseases
    * Joint problems
    * Stroke

Is the 'Size Rights community' in favor of or promoting these conditions?
