I can't remember the source, but I seem to remember reading a study that showed as your socio-economic status decreased, your likelyhood of being significantly overweight increased.

I remember reading something like that too. It said that the higher you go (or wish to appear to be) in socio-economic status (a.k.a. social ladder) the slimmer your figure.

Yet oddly enough, at the very top while women are quite slim (skinny?) men tend to be just a little bit heavier then when they were at the next-to-the-very-top rung of the social ladder.

Here's bit of info from an American Journal of Public Health  study on obesity, profession, and gender in England.  Thought you'd be interested.
