That could be too general a standard. Surely a person of normal weight who either has a fantastic metabolism or eats small amount of bad food is not as healthy as a person who is underweight or overweight but eating a nutritious diet. I have know painfully thin vegetarians as well as obese vegetarians; they both eat a better diet than someone who consumes 2000 calories a day of hamburgers or beer and weighs ok for metlife.
