I agree with Sam Klein’s assessment of the research.  As long as you don’t have insulin resistance, it means you don’t have systematic inflammation. As I pointed out in my book Toxic Fat published in 2008, another definition of metabolically healthy obese individuals is that they have healthy fat cells.  It is only when your fat cells become sick or start to die, that systematic insulin resistance begins to develop and spread from the fat cells to other organs.  This is called lipotoxicity.
