0009360: All visitors are skinny
All visitors in fort mode are described as "incredibly skinny".
1. Load up a save in v0.42.03 (possibly one made in .02?)
2. Look at the fort's visitors
3. There you go
Not very important, just wanted to mention it.
No tags attached.

No visitors of my current fort are skinny though.

Simulated journeys with 0008508 causing cave adaption may point towards the commmon cause this is not precisely a bug.

If the visitor travels regularly or from very far away, the exercise might wear down their fat and improve/weaken their physique (armok willing making mounts take the brunt of a fat lawgiver's weight on long travels may make for more obese visitors from laziness and haggard horses & mules)

Your fortress may just not be very far away from the nearest site they are visiting from.

I just checked the description of all visitors present in my current fort (version 44.12).

Of the 20 visitors (all humans), 14 did not mention a physique (so I assume they are "normal"), while 6 were "incredibly skinny", "incredibly skinny with a small build" or "short and incredibly skinny". This seems suspicious as there is nothing between "normal" and "incredibly skinny", also there were no overweight visitors.
