16. Not nowadays...
I take care of HIV/AIDS pts and we have all sizes...I've seen them as tiny as 95 pounds to very healthy 120's-150's to not so healthy 300 pounds.
The gaunt, underweight look is remembered by most from the late 80's and early 90's before cocktails came into play.
Wanna know what our waiting room looks like?? Go to your local mall or movie theater and look around. That is our waiting room. Nowadays, you may not be able to pick out the person in a crowd who is living with HIV/AIDs. The odds of the person being the 60 year old grandma and grandpa with their grandkids in tow or a young, athletic looking mom pushing her infant in a stroller are real possibilities.
