Ginger makes good points. My general opinion is that if people dont care enough to work hard for their own health, they arent going to work hard for me. Now thats not always true, of course, but I cannot say that I have met a truly ambitious and hard-working person who is morbidly obese. I have met good workers, but not what I would consider to be the top .01%. And it is only the top .01% that have a chance of making it to the highest-level positions.
