The 6th Lubavitcher Rebbe, HaRav HaTzadik HaChossid Rav Yosef Yitzchok Schneerson, wrote in the sefer HaYom Yom, from Day to Day, entry for the 15th of Tammuz...
My father (the 5th Rebbe) writes in one of his Maamarim:
"Fatness of the body can result from the spiritual pleasure and delight derived from G-dliness.
They say of (the Rebbe) R. Nachum of Chernobil that he became corpulent from answering Amein Y'hei Sh'mei Raba."
Boy I wish that was my reason!!!
