No she really is not at high risk of any of those things.


I said higher, not high, and yes, she would be. She'd be squarely in the middle of the "overweight" category. Feel free to argue with the AMA and NIH's risk assessment guidelines if you feel like it, however.

I'm not a big guy... 5'8", 155 lbs, and pretty fit. I've dated all sizes of women from under 5' tall and curvy, to 6'3" runway models, and I must say, I much prefer it if a woman weighs less than I do. Not that big girls are unattractive...I'm no hater. Things just seem to go more smoothly if they don't outweigh me.

But my deal-breaker: Big hands and feet. No matter how attractive, intelligent, funny etc, if her hands and feet are bigger than mine, I just can't do it. It gives me the willies for some reason.


Gives me the willies, too, when a man's feet are smaller than mine.

That seems a bit restrictive. I dated a girl who was 5'7" and a shade over 140, but she had a magnificent figure by nearly any standard. She was a regular runner so maybe it was the extra leg muscle, who knows, but I don't think it's unrealistic for a 5'7" woman to venture into 145 territory without being visibly overweight.

Nope. Link:

We conclude that for non-Hispanic whites, both overweight and obesity are associated with increased all-cause mortality, and underweight may be as well. All-cause mortality is generally lowest within the BMI range of 20.0 to 24.9. The results of our analysis are most relevant to whites living in affluent countries; similar analyses are under way in other populations.

The article, which is a meta-analysis of studies including 1.46 Million white adults, notes that, while some studies in the meta-analysis suggested that overweight carries little risk and some showed a possible benefit, they were confounded with smoking and preexisting illness. When pooled with other studies and examining the resultant large amounts of participant data, BMI above 25 - overweight - and obese showed increased rates of all-cause mortality.

I love when people try to disguise their hatred of overweight people with "concern" for their health. Studies on the effect of a BMI between 25 and 30 on health are not clear at all. Never mind the fact that waist-to-hip ratio is a better predictor of health problems than BMI.

Tellingthem: Jesus i'm 6'3" and I weight about that...And I'm not exactly a bean pole either...


According to the AMA you are average and healthy. Personally, my best weight has been 185 lbs. as an adult (I had abs for a brief time). I am 5'6" and at that time I could clean and press 250 lbs. and did so regularly each day as part of my job (yes, I should have asked for a team lift, but I could move the boxes myself with minor effort). It scared the hell out of the customers. That puts me at obese for that weight and I was only that light since that job paid me so little that I could barely afford food after rent, heat, and driving to work in an owned econo car!

Then again, their chart puts puts a famous body builder that won the Mister Universe contest once as an amateur and three times in a row as a professional as obese! His personal records for lifting clean & press - 264 lb (120 kg), snatch - 243 lb (110 kg), clean & jerk - 298 lb (135 kg), Squat - 215 kg (470 lb), Bench press - 200 kg (440 lb), deadlift - 310 kg (680 lb). Certainly not some flabby guy. Granted, his height is argued over as between 5'10" and 6'2" for some reason, but his average weight has been 250 lbs.

collider.com

Would you tell him that he is obese?

Their data is out of date or skewed by countries with other health problems (famine, pollution, poor regional diet, ect.) or ethnicity (some areas have bred humans that or taller or weigh more. Look at Norway.)

My wife has bigger tits and weighs a bit more than this woman. She is as strong and hot as hell. It is no fun not having her able to roll me around in bed.

Not really. Ideal weight is higher than what the modern charts tell you. In fact, a woman should weigh a bit more than the charts say for optimal health, bone density and so on. I see you've cited a single study. Multiple studies have contradicted the findings from that one.

Some women have 2 vaginas.Google Blanche Dumas.

I'm a little curious as how one determines a woman has bigger feet than oneself. It requires a lot of looking down and it's not always obvious by looking at their shoes. I often wear a size 10, which is a bit big on me, because I like to shovel in cushioning insoles.

At any rate after reading that woman's body proportions I now feel a lot better about myself, although I do know I carry extra fat, I'm also muscular enough to keep it toned. End result is I look reasonably fine.

"Correlation does not imply causation," comes to mind, but I think others have hit on that. More importantly, you have to look at the studies themselves and who financed them. I would put little faith in a study paid for by an organization that had a vested interest in making people believe that they are fat. As for looking at each of the studies for their scientific quality, although it could involve a great deal of tedious research that no one really has the time for (unless they are being paid to look into the level of obesity), there is an easy way to tell if the statistics are junk; look at the publisher.

Something from the journals Science or Nature or from a major health institute such as the Mayo Clinic is worth far more than something from the evening news program, as I believe your sources are. As for nationalize organizations like the AMA, which is where most of this false data seems to propagate from, they are influenced by political motives (such as hiding the fact that people are needlessly starving for political reasons) and not only are they generally behind current data and professional standards, but they may also be influenced by commercial interests.

You posted little information about which studies were used (yes, I looked at the link)
Read your data as a scientist.
