    America isn't the only country with a weight problem.

    The U.S. takes a lot of flak for being fat, buta study published last month in The Lancetshows that obesity is in fact a global problem. Not only is roughly one-third of the world's population either obese or overweight, it turns out that, in the past thirty-three years, not one country on Earth has managed to reduce its rate of obesity.

    Many of the study's biggest takeaways have been made available online, in the form ofinteractive visualizations, and clearly illustrate the global prevalence of obesity. Consider these key findings, highlighted by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation:

    • More than 50% of the world's 671 million obese live in 10 countries (ranked beginning with the countries with the most obese people): US, China, India, Russia, Brazil, Mexico, Egypt, Germany, Pakistan, and Indonesia.
    • The US, United Kingdom, and Australia are among the high-income countries with large gains in obesity among men and women.
    • Over the 33-year period of research, the Middle East showed large increases in obesity. Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Kuwait were among the countries with the largest increases in obesity globally.
    • In six countries, all in the Middle East and Oceania – Kuwait, Kiribati, the Federated States of Micronesia, Libya, Qatar, and Samoa – the prevalence of obesity for women exceeds 50%. In Tonga, both men and women have obesity prevalence over 50%.
    • In sub-Saharan Africa, the highest obesity rates (42%) are seen among South African women.
    Some more key findings appear in the infographic at the end of this post, but the upshot is clear: The obesity epidemic is not confined to the United States. As study author Christopher Murray put it: "Obesity is an issue affecting people of all ages and incomes, everywhere."

    Most people who are overweight jus have a healthy bit of stomach on them

  8. BMI is not something to go by. John Cena would be considered overweight to even obese. It is a good tool for average body types but it gets messy when muscle is present. I think it is more accurate to just look in the mirror. Hip to waist ratio is something that helps but does not necessarily mean you are healthy.

    There are three basic builds in both men and women : Small, Medium and Large. This is bone structure, not weight or muscle.

    Each one of those should have their own ideal BMI and H2WR. They don't which is why people get confused.

    I have seen chunky men and women that are in better shape then their skinny counter part. Obese is an issue. That will never be healthy. Over weight is so drastically thrown around it is not even funny. People need to stop focusing on their weight and just look in the mirror. Look at your bone structure, then muscle, then fat. You can't change your bone structure but you can alter your muscle and fat. If you have a large bone structure then obviously you will carry more weight and more muscle in a healthy manner vs someone who has a small structure.

    For guys you look at shoulders, for women you look at hips. The wider they are (the bones!) the more weight you will carry.

    Also stomach fat is the worst fat on your body. This is common sense. It suffocates your organs and arteries. It is not healthy when a women looks like an apple and its not healthy when a man looks pregnant, I am talking mid to full term here.

    The best way to measure your health (fat wise) is by your waist size. Your waist should be half your height in inches or smaller.

  11. If I were walking into the buffet line at the same time as TGMI I would speed ahead to get in front of him to make sure I got some food before he ate it all like the fat miserable piece of trailer trash that he is.
     
  12. again lad where is the proof I am fat

    just saying BMI is useless
     
  13. When it comes to fat though, you have too much when your waist is over half your height in inches. This is stomach fat alone, the worst kind.
     
  14. I've seen photos of you next to Jim Cornette, a fatass himself, and you looked 10 X fatter than that fat piece of shit.

    Don't go on that crap. It is outdated and doesn't cover all body sizes and bone structures.
