DEAR DOCTOR K: Is it possible to be obese and healthy at the same time?
DEAR READER: I call questions like yours "Could I get lucky?" questions. Basically, these questions ask: "If I do (or ignore) something that puts me at great risk, could I get away with it?" The answer to those questions almost always is: Yes, it's possible -- but don't hold your breath. In my opinion, an important part of living is taking account of the odds. You may weigh the odds and decide that you want to do something risky anyway: It's just that important to you.
