    I have to agree with this. The typical American is so overweight now that people think that fat/over weight is the new normal and that people who are at a healthy weight are under weight. My wife is 5' 5" and about 118lbs., she works out regularly and her arms and abs are actually getting fairly muscular/well defined. The average American women her height weighs a hog fat 160-165lbs. Subsequently everyone at her office is always telling her about how "skinny" and "underweight" she is and how she needs to eat more etc. presumably so that she can be soft, sloppy, jiggly etc. like just about everybody else where she works. She says that she can literally count on one hand the number of people who look as if they do any kind of physical activity at all.

    • Here's why men should lift weights: I've been quasi-seeing this girl, sort of, and she's been getting a lot more into thinking about nutrition and lifting. She's not in bad shape or anything, but just hasn't really put all this stuff together in her head as comprehensively as I have yet.

      Anyway, we were out and about recently, and she said "Wow, I never really noticed this stuff before, but it's STRIKING how much better you look than the average dude who you can tell doesn't lift weights and is all skinny body with a soft or fat middle."

      Girls thinking you're way above average-looking is badass.

      I mean, health, too, but...

        Yeah, but if you were born stupid PLUS ate 100% carbs you could become doubly stupid!

          Could be. Could be. I'm with bloodorchid - too many stupid people having kids while the smart ones wait or don't have them at all. I'm reading a journal of a member here who is adopting kids - physicals, parenting classes, hoops to jump through meanwhile any moron with a room temperature IQ and a 6 pack of Bud Light can knock up his high school drop out girl friend because they haven't figured out how condoms work.

              In other news... my son did this.
              Although his GF did graduate.
              Yay. Congratulations me.
              No.

                  Thanks, love being compared to a hog. XO. Classy, and I know you wouldn't call me hog fat to my face, but you are in a conversation with people that actually weigh more than that. Sorry that your wife has to put up with some jealous bitches... but really? Hog fat?

                  Trust me, she noticed your fit body and assessed it as hot long before she mentioned it.

                      Right! Hell, every time I go to visit my sisters in the US I can see how FAT Americans have become. Too much reality TV and not enough exercise, perhaps?

                        Perhaps. Or the 130lbs of sugar the avg citizen consumes each year (it's 18% of their nation's food supply by calories).

                        But there's nothing they can learn from other cultures, because they got it all figured out.

                        • Hint: the people you are talking to on these boards don't eat the foods "Americans" eat.

                          But we sure don't need to follow in the footsteps of the twisted ass asian cultures to fix ourselves.

                          • It's actually the Asian cultures who are now following in the Americans footsteps and getting the same failed results.

                            Americans following in the footsteps of older cultures obviously isn't happening.

                            Although Paleo is about doing that, yes, and we aren't the masses, true.

                            Lets try to keep it sane.

                              Yep. Every one I have met in the states who are fat, don't care about their health or very little else. Sad really. I was born and raised in the US but could never understand that mentality.

                              I know. Americans think they are better than the rest of the world. Not anymore. Sad. The decline has begun.

                                Asia is not Japan and vice versa. In fact, most asians would regard Japanese as wierdos (if you are in doubt, just watch their TV shows).
