Howard Schneider is a journalist for the Washington post.  He has been there for 20 years and has had many different reporting and editing jobs. In this article he ask the simple question of who will do better in the zombie apocalypse, fat people or skinny people. He claims that when it comes to the first 2 weeks of having limited food that bigger people will be better off because they have more fat and calories stored in them for energy. this sounds good in theory but it is not ho it will be. even though food will be limited and skinnier people don’t have as much energy stored in them there will still always be ways to get food like hunting. Also being in good shape is a very important part of the apocalypse because you will be getting chased and things a lot. if you are overweight and not in good shape then you probably wont do to hot in a zombie apocalypse.
