    If you've still got neurological complications it's hard to say. Any additional compression or inflammation is likely to worsen it IMO, and that's the last thing you want.

    Oh, come on. So by that logic if I weighed 190 (which is about my genetic limit for muscle at 12% BF), I'd have the same cardiovascular risk factors as another guy that weighs 190 at 30% bodyfat? ...
