Hi guys, I moved your list of references into the Bibliography page. It would be nice to have a short summary of what each article is about. Also, don't forget to sign your name each time you enter something in your article, I don't know who added this reference list. Tijmen, you're part of this group but you still haven't signed in.

Hi, can someone (Keith made the list?) put up the list of what we're all covering? I am thinking I might do a section where I review the evidence base for/against the healthy obesity classification. Is someone already covering this? Tijmen van Slageren 16:54, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

Victoria Catherine Pickard 12:29, 25 October 2011 (UTC)Hiya, Liam is covering what healthy obesity is and its metabolic profile compared to that of normal weight individuals, and obese individuals with unhealthy metabolic profiles. Keith is covering the effect of exercise and i think weight reduction on the metabolic profile of healhty obese individuals. And I'm covering the role of adiponectin in healthy obesity. A section on the evidence base sounds good!

Right guys, I ve put the titles up and what I think should be discussed for each. I think it covers the topic pretty well. Let me know what you think Liam Jon Carr 18:28, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Well done Victoria. You're spot on with the level of depth and detail needed. I've made some minor tweaks to the style. Gareth Leng 11:51, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Do you guys want me to move my section under the heading of 'Does healthy obesity need to be investigated'? Keith Charles Allen 16:24, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
