Can you fire people for being fat, too?

Company Fires All Employees Who Smoke
Michigan Firm Won't Allow Smoking, Even On Employee's Own Time

Company founder Howard Weyers has said the anti-smoking rule was designed to shield the firm from high health care costs. "I don't want to pay for the results of smoking," he said.

"That is absolutely a victory," Climes said.

On the company's Web site, it states:

Weyco Inc. is a non-smoking company that strongly supports its employees in living healthy lifestyles.

I guess, by that logic, you can fire anyone who can be demonstrably shown to lead an unhealthy lifestyle. Not going to the gym? You're fired. Having loads of unprotected and/or unusual sex? Fired (stop by my office first, though).
