Is 'overfat' the new obesity?

What is overfat?

"Overfat is a term created to describe if you have a body fat level that can actually hurt your health. Even people who are considered 'normal weight' or 'non-obese' by traditional standards can fall into this category.

The authors of this new study argue that BMI misses about 50% of the people who still have dangerous amounts of fat. Those are typically people who have the proverbial beer belly, but are otherwise in decent shape."
