>>9456810 >Americans now strive to weigh, on average, 162 pounds. U.S. men's "ideal weight" is 14 pounds heavier and women's "ideal weight" is 11 pounds heavier than they were 20 years ago, the Gallup report showed. Specifically, men today say that their "ideal weight" is 185 pounds.
Time to abandon the country. Also just date petite women and your problem is solved.
>>9457624 >Also just date petite women and your problem is solved. This. if a woman's too thick for the dick, drop em and fill your time with a better hobby. Fat women will get their act together and be better off for it.
walking around my college campus and I am able to see this average weight. However, it's still shocking when you're also 5'4" and weigh between 95-100lbs, knowing you're around 70lbs under the average.
>>9457750 No they're not. The typical American -- "average" is not "typical" -- is no heavier than the typical Brazilian, Mexican, German, Englishman.... You just don't know anything about statistics, bro.
Also, this isn't on topic for /fa/. Fuck off back to /b/ or /fit/.
>>9458010 Germans are within 1% of the UK. That's enough to be a measurement error. Brazil is only 1 BMI smaller than Yuropoor, or less than 4 from "fat" America. You don't know shit, son. You see Americans concerned about their weight ratios and advertising the problem to their populace because of their global hegemony and don't even know shit about your home.
>>9458019 This. Obesity is a GLOBAL thing, even the starving countries are edging towards fat fucks. Why? Because some people get monster-fat and fuck up all the statistics, and because food is worse all over than it used to be.
>over 25 is overweight >15 is starvation >over 30 is fat >over 35 is obese >over 40 is morbidly obese
>retards bragging about being 17, as in skeletons >retards mocking 27, which isn't even that bad in relative terms >nearly all countries have an average bmi over 25 >thinking if you aren't 20-23 you are some kind of perfect size
>>9458040 No, I'm a skeleton. I'm just also a mathematics grad and statistical illiteracy grinds me up. >18bmi >Below average: lower BMI than 95% of females aged 15-29 in your country Global >Below average: lower BMI than 81% of females aged 15-29 in the world >You're most like someone from Vietnam
>>9458049 did you not even read my post? is your fat obscuring your vision? "men prefer girls with curves" is something fat women say to feel better about themselves >lanklet >you're obviously some twink twig these are things fat men say to feel better about themselves
Filled in the person from the OP image. An OP image that does not cite shit and could have come from anywhere, by the way. It certainly doesn't match the data in >>9458006
28bmi BMI is an estimate of how "overweight" or "obese" a person is National Above average You have a higher BMI than 60% of females aged 15-29 in your country Global Above average You have a higher BMI than 92% of females aged 15-29 in the world
Did you know? If everyone in the world had the same BMI as you, it would add 55,683,363 tonnes to the total weight of the world's population You're most like someone from Barbados*
there is a legitimate source for this data http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/body-measurements.htm >Women: >Height (inches): 63.8 >Weight (pounds): 166.2 that's actually heavier and shorter (which is a higher BMI which is fatter) than the data provided in the OP
>>9458066 What about when you adjust for demographics, like poverty, race, and age? Oh shit that would actually be meaningful data can't do that or you wouldn't be able to be a nationalistic dicksuck ignoring the real problem in favor of getting egotistical about shit you don't even have a hand in. Or what about showing the outliers, both on the "starving" and "morbid obese" end, the ones that are radically different from the statistical mode or normal average? Aw damn better not perform meaningful data selectivity or you can't be a sneering cunt on the internet, waving around numbers you don't know the meaning of and linked to firms with agendas and outdated samples.
>you fat, you american, you tumblr, you intelligentsia
>>9458078 >your BMI may be in the "normal" range but that doesn't mean you're not fat Yeah I'm actually obese but with a "normal" range BMI because that's totally possible. Go to bed now Stringbean, adults are talking.
>>9458094 the bottom line is that being 159 lbs at 5'10", unless you have a substantial amount of muscle mass (which I'm sure you don't), means you have an excess of body fat and are thus fat rather than denying it I suggest you channel your anger into something productive, like going on a run or a jog or even a walk if that's all you can manage
>live in murica > 5'6" and 113 >people encourage me to eat more and tell me its okay for me to eat junk food. > if I talk about even losing a few pounds I'm the worst person in the world. being skinnyfat is the same as being anorexic here
>>9457768 >5'4 160 pounds is simply not full skeletal stfu nerd
im 5'10 155 and Im skinnyfat as fuck, I can grab my gut with my hand and I have love handles and I look like shit in skinny jeans because of my fat ass thighs, so that should put 5'4 160 lb in perspective for you
>>9458137 BMI is a statistical measure, it has nothing to do with how much excess fat a person has (not the person you're replying to but seriously, how do people not understand this?) You can have a bmi of 17 and have a high body fat, you can have the bmi of an obese person and be fit as fuck (Football players & Bodybuilders)
>>9458137 the phrase "fat" refers to an excess of body fat not an excess of total body mass the former is what you have, the latter is what you think you have
>>9458141 >If you work out you'll have a "higher" BMI than usual because muscle mass has a much greater density (it takes up less volume than an equal mass of fat). this is true but your reasoning isn't even remotely correct why are you bringing density into this? bmi has nothing to do with density it has everything to do with height you have an excess of fat, not body mass your BMI isn't high because you work out too much, it's because you eat too many cheeseburgers and you can eat a whole cheeseburger because you're already fat and you've already given up in life idk why I'm arguing with you though you know what they say about manlets
how does the average american woman weigh more than me? being fat seems really gross, hard on the knees, sweat, unattractive, nice clothes are not meant for round sagging bodies, like that, their hearts have to work too hard.
165 is a lot for someone at that height. I would consider myself at an average weight for my height (110lbs, 5' 3") but this makes it seem like if I were to be the American average I'd have to weigh another 30 pounds. They're one inch taller and have an extra 1/3 of a person on them.
If you are grossly overweight, like 165lbs at 5ft4, your main goal in life, before Television, reality tv shows, baking, laundry, buying maternity wear, grey's anatomy, boys, your family, taylor swift, country music, friends, should be to lose weight.
>>9458219 damn some of these women carry their weight infinitely better than others ridiculously fine honey: http://www.mybodygallery.com/photos-45272-body-shape.htm?StartAt=4 then this thing: http://www.mybodygallery.com/photos-32563-body-shape.htm?StartAt=49
if somehow had the choice to be covered in 30+ pounds of lard that stretches out their skin, on teh only body they will ever have for all time, or to spend 4 months watching what they eat to look as good as possible, why would they choose the Lard Option?
I live in San Francisco. Some mornings on the way to work I play "try to find a woman over the age of 30 who doesn't have visible abdominal fat". I have literally gone 2-3 days at a time without seeing any (if I don't count Asians).
I don't understand how married men just accept their wives slowly destroying their bodies. I would rather stay single and fuck prosututes all my life. Would save more money that way
Nah, most women here dont care since feminists have made it incredibly taboo to even discuss anything relating to weight. I see fat women happily devouring junk food all the time.
What's most fascinating to me, is that, as a woman like 60-70% of your attractiveness is based on your body. It is SUCH a competitive advantage to be a skinny woman in America because they are so rare (especially as you go up the age chain). Yet most women still don't give a flying fuck. If you told me "you can do this one thing to make yourself WAY more attractive", I would be fucking ecstatic. But it's not that easy as a guy
>>9458316 Native koreans maybe, but once you move to the us, 2-3 generations down they're pretty much like anyone else. Grew up in california, east asians were like 30% of my high school. Maybe if they had 1st gen parents they'd have something different.
>>9459727 >basically achieving just as much in sports, culture, economy, science >we're just a lot better on average are you kidding me? nobody anywhere else in the world gives two shits about australian culture or sports or science. and your economy is solely propped up by china, so when that goes to the shitter expect yours to as well
>>9459741 >goes to the shitter sorry dude but china will take over usa's gdp within 2 years and won't get any smaller. their middle class is bigger in population than the entire usa australia is only going to get better and better we have the highest wealth per person as well on average
>>9456810 Are you sure the average isn't hurt by outliers? Like, if there's 50 women who weigh 130 and 10 women who weigh 300+, it could seriously mess it up. Judging by people I see on the street everyday I feel like most women I see are no more than 140 at most. Then again, every time I pass through a rural town while traveling it seems like everyone is at least 30 pounds overweight.
I refuse to date anybody heavier than me. And seeing as how 155lbs is going to be viewed as anorexia it looks like I'll have to start looking for my dates at counselling centers or start buying onaholes from j-list so I don't resort to fucking fatties
>>9458006 >lower BMI than 90% of U.S. males 15-29 >lower BMI than 57% of males worldwide 15-29 All this superiority and yet I still have no lanklet indie gf. I bet the 10% above me take all the gfs
you're just not noticing women over age 35. Outside of New York and Miami, the female population in America over age 35 that is legitimately thin (aka flat stomach) is like 1-2% at most, with half of that being asians
>>9460518 >I refuse to date anybody heavier than me
I won't touch a woman who's >120. I couldn't care less if I'm single my entire life. I'll just accumulate wealth and fuck high class escorts. If women as a whole are throwing in the towel, I'm not going to just accept it like the majority of betas in this country
I think that western men have enabled this by constantly telling their wives and gfs 'i prefer a bit of meat on my women' or 'curves are sexy'. If men didn't accept such slovenly appearances in women, then women would make more of an effort.
But most men are afraid of the cognitive dissonance. Biologically they are hard wired to find thinness attractive, but there are virtually no thin women around anymore. So what do they do? Pretend to actually like thick women, or "women with curves". There is a reason that 99% of EPL players, movie stars and hedge fund managers have extremely thin gfs/wives, it's because they have the ability to actually choose their optimal mate and don't have to lie to themselves
I read a lot of Japanese magazines that have weightloss ads in them and a lot of azn women have that apple body shape. Not that whites can't have that kind of body shape but "... androgens tended to be lower in Western-born women, with differences of more than 10% observed for A and T." (source:http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2364275/) Androgenic fat distribution would be more common in azn populations where their bodies don't produce enough estrogen to counter the male hormones on average.
>>9459727 >as much in sports Which is why you're a nobody at the olympics every year? >culture Which is why you're a laughingstock at best and no one knows anything about your shit country except "eh cunt throw another shrimp on the barbie this is a knife"? >economy Okay now you're just being retarded. You aren't even remotely an economic competitor. >science Name three important Australian discoveries, inventions, or innovations. I give you three chances, in three categories, to dazzle me. You can't.
>>9459755 Hahaha the Australian education system, everybody! "Artificial inflation bubbles created by ghost cities and an economy completely failing to transtition away from factory work that kills millions of their own people is never ever going to burst ever because it's just SO REAL and HISTORICALLY SUSTAINABLE!"
>>9462055 >e biological response to a steady stream of poor quality
stop being such a tryhard
Having mono/poly unsaturated fat-laden foods as a staple in your diet isn't nearly as bad as eating ONLY saturated-fat laden foods. Your body needs fat to absorb fat-soluble vitamins.
Eat what you like but only in small portions is what nutritionists rec much of the time because that's what fucking works. If you want top lose fat,a low-carb to no carb diet is optimal. Cutting out all fat is stupid and dangerous.
