People with higher BMIs scored lower on cognitive tests that examined memory, attention and thought-processing. For example, people on the thin side — with a BMI of 20 — remembered an average of nine of 16 words in a memory test. On the other hand, those with a BMI of 30 remembered an average of seven words.

I already knew that though. Which sucks, ’cause you can guess how I figured that out.
Also, genes dictate whether you gain weight when stressed. Even eating a lighter than normal diet, when my dad lost his eyesight, I gained 15 pounds in one week. Paula and Jess lose weight when they’re stressed.
It’s bad news, for me.
