My husband does not seem to believe he is overweight

Patient: My husband does not seem to believe he is overweight. He is 5’6 to 5’7 and weight 215 pounds. He is still young in his 20’s and claims because he has not current health problems he is not overweight. He also says all his fat is a actually muscle and because he has a broader build he is, heavier. What might happen if he stays at thus weight as he gets older and do you believe he could benefit from losing some weight?
