One More Thing Before We Go: A Good Reason To Gain Weight

Did you know that gaining a little more weight as you get older helps you look — well, less old after 40? I know that this is certainly true in my family.

And I’ve also noticed that too-thin celebrities often look a lot older than their weightier counterparts. So I guess it comes down to whether you’d prefer to be super-thin or incredibly youthful.

Also keep in mind that thinness is only one youth killer. Much worse: smoking, not wearing sunscreen, and divorce. No I’m not kidding about that last one. Read more about this fascinating subject here.
