Default Are sumo wrestlers healthy?

I was wondering how sumo wrestlers can be soo fat and still be able to have so much endurance and athletic ability.















I understand that the have a very strict diet and lifestyle so I was wondering if their extra fat was ok.































Points for best answers!

No. It is a very unhealthy lifestyle.































The negative effects of the sumo lifestyle become dangerously apparent later in life. Sumo wrestlers have a life expectancy of between 60 and 65, more than 10 years shorter than the average Japanese male. They often develop diabetes, high blood pressure, and are prone to heart attacks. The excessive intake of alcohol can lead to liver problems and the stress on their joints can cause arthritis. Recently, the standards of weight gain are becoming less strict, in an effort to improve the overall health of the wrestlers.[16][17] The average height of sumo wrestlers is around 180 cm (5' 11).

Good question lol they r extremely extremely extremely overweight, but im pretty sure they eat healthy have tons of wrestling, so I guess they are healthy but in a really creepy odd way.
