(WHAS 11)—Fat but fit?

Is it a myth or could it actually be true?

Recent studies have suggested that people who are overweight but physically active live longer than people who are normal weight but inactive.

However, Canadian researchers say hold on.

Doctors say this proves that simply being active is not enough.
