If you think that it's men that has an overweight problem, you're missing half the equation. There are plenty of overweight women in the LS as well. In general, about half the American population is overweight. I don't think the percentage is any higher in the LS. If anything, the percentage is probably lower in the LS.

And on a related topic --

Women carry extra weight more attractively than do men. Women usually carry it in the thighs and ass and extra weight can also add cup sizes -- things many men love. And an extra belly on a woman - that "muffin top" is also a fetish for some.

Men on the other hand only really carry it in one place, and that place changes the perspective of how big something else (measured as important in the lifestyle though I know not why) appears to be. I'm talking flaccid size here, which has been shown to be fairly irrelevant to other things like erect size and overall sexual satisfaction with a male partner.

BMI is a joke. Sure, we can lose a few pounds but that is not what this is about. BMI as never intended for use in individual diagnoses. BMI was supposed to be used for general trends in population studies - look it up. We are all for being fit but would rather concentrate on things that matter, like resting heart rate, BP, cholesterol levels, etc..

I once was having some tests done at one of our local clinics and some skinny Indian doc told me that by BMI I was obese, even though just barely. And yet he was the one winded after the flight of stairs. I asked if he needed help or wanted me to carry him.

We are finding in our area, it's the opposite for the most part. There are a few exceptions, but those are few and far between.

What got me from 325# to my current of 215-220# (6'3") was and is litterally getting back to basics. All whole foods, organic for the bulk of it, as clean as I can when not. Complex carbs and protein in balance at every meal and lots of soluable fiber (I have IBS). I'm not an exercise fan, in a gym anyway, but I snowboard in the long winter months that I used to sit on my ass and I mountain bike, hike, swim, paddle etc in better weather. For aerobics I am amazingly blessed with a lover that enjoys long sessions of very 'active' sex. I've checked my stats, it's far better than interval training! What a motivator, huh? HA!

And I LOVE this:

As someone who weighed in at 320lbs at one time, I can say that being that fat is NOT healthy or fun. How am I supposed to look at someone as an equal if they can't respect their own body?

That being said, I put on some weight over the last year and it SUCKS! Literally did not have time to work out. Working full time and school full time at night. I tried to get what I could during the weekend, but it just wasn't enough. My diet was awful and I felt awful.

One thing I have learned is that it's 90% diet for most people. You have to eat well to be well. Like someone else mentioned, it's an American thing sadly. We are one of the fattest nations on Earth at ~75%/pop. Heck, all it takes is a little bit more willpower to eat right. Once your body adjusts to the new energy source, you'll wonder how you ever survived on that crap you ate. I swear, the more water and healthy food you put in your body, the more energy you'll have. That translates to an increase in better sex.

Two different people with identical BMI can look very different, depending on how much of their weight is made up of fat as opposed to muscle. A toned person weighing X pounds might look a lot better than someone weighing X minus 10 pounds.

"we feel fluff is ok (we both feel we are overweight) but obese is not... "

According to standard BMI chart 5'3" tall at 170# is obese. So is 5'8" at 205#

Our perceptions are so out of whack in this country we call obese fluffy. I know, I was over 300# at one point....
