      Well, I have to say when I first read your comment, I was offended. I mean no one ever says why do men go bald? But I have to agree with tim-tim: the majority of women work in a capacity that doesn't afford them much movement opportunity. Top that off with going home; tending to the kids; husband; household - there are so many hours in the day. Fatigue sets in - priorities for yourself get lost in the shuffle. Is that an excuse - no. It's an explanation.

      Are some bald men unattractive - no. Are some fat women unattractive - no. So I guess it's a matter of preference on the individual's part.

      I don't think most women are fat.  It's a very relative term, unless one is clinically obese.

      I think media fosters expectations for rail-thin women who photograph well, and while that ISN'T most of us, it wouldn't be very healthy for most of us to be that way.

      I see just as many overweight men as I do women, and I think the reason has already been stated--most of us, men and women both, have less physical jobs where we're seated at a desk most of the day.

      Some extra weight is healthy.  I don't call that "fat".  It is better for a person to get more exercise.  A person carrying an extra 10 or 15 pounds or so who gets regular exercise is perfectly healthy and looks good.

        It cracked me up too.  lol  When I saw "fat" before clicking on I was expecting a discussion of something like eating margarine versus olive oil (or something like that).  Instead, I was shocked by the blunt question.  lol  lol  And it was only a matter of time before someone brought up Oreos.  lol

        Actually, this thread "inspired" me to write a Hub.  Besides having done quite a bit of research on the topic, I've had more than my share of friends who wear Mom jeans.  I'm not asking anyone to read it - only mentioning it's there in case the OP would like a serious answer to his question.  (He isn't going to get that answer here.  lol )

      drwebbposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Most women become overweight for the same reasons men do. They do not eat healthy and they do not get enough exercise during the day. The body stores extra calories as fat.  For women, the hormones play a role in keeping their metabolism slower as women get older and after child bearing. The bottom line is people need to live healthier lifestyles in order to maintain healthier weights overall.

  11. wychic profile image79
    wychicposted 7 years ago

    Of all the overweight people I know there seems to be a pretty equal division between males and females. However, the kinds of jobs women tend to do as opposed to ones men are allowed to do (desk jobs vs. heavy lifting, etc.) may lend to overweight women. Lifestyle makes a huge difference for both sexes. Also, women do naturally have a higher body fat percentage than men do, it's just how we're made.

    I think it also depends on what you're considering fat...once a woman has had a child, it's next to impossible to ever have a flat stomach again because the baby adds on belly fat that's really hard to get rid of, stretches out the skin so even without fat there it can still be loose, and completely wrecks abdominal muscles. If you're wanting a washboard belly, stick to the high schoolers wink.

    However, all that aside, of truly obese people I see there is a pretty equal division between men and women...though if I had to pick one, I'd have to say there are just a few more men. Maybe it's because there is so much more social stigma for fat women than fat men? At least around here anyway. My morbidly obese ex and his friends, all ranging from overweight to extremely obese, often sat around calling various females cows for being, say, 10-20 pounds overweight. When I asked him how he can say such things when he himself is 150 pounds overweight, he told me that it's okay for men but disgusting for women. What am I missing here?

  12. Cheeky Chick profile image56
    Cheeky Chickposted 7 years ago

    As women age, their bodies begin to make less estrogen.  Hormones are stored in the fat of our belly and hips.  When our body makes less estrogen, it relies on the estrogen that is stored in our fat.  Therefore, it holds on to that fat in order to keep a reserve of estrogen.

    Seriously, I have some food for thought, my younger sisters are twins, they have been identical since birth and we always assumed their metabolisms were also.  They loved the same things, though varied their hair length often to confuse people, their voices were so similar they could even fool us...sisters, grandma, sometimes mom or dad.  Once they turned 30, something changed, they each had two babies, one had a boy + a girl, the other 2 girls.  As big sis, I knew one always got her way with her husband(spoiled), and they had a active sex live, my other sister was busy, busy busy all the time and we had too really make an effort to track her down all the time.  Her husband was not my favorite, aloof, superior to women, bad attitude and my sister cried because he just didn't appear interested or affectionate anymore. Once she confided they seldom had sex more than 2-3 times a year!  They actually went over two years after their second child was born....and she is 35 lbs over weight and can't lose an ounce, she is distressed because her twin is thin and tanned and her health is much better also.        Does this speak anything to the benefits of marrying a man who adores you and...to the men...tending to your "gardens" even when you don't "feel" like it....or you'll be up the same creek!  I think one of the reasons why women start giving up is because they aren't getting the positive feedback they need to thrive.

      There are definitely more female super-chubbs than males. Blobby blokes exist too. But due to fact that men are traditionally taller, their blubber is more evenly distributed... or at least that is the perception.

      Whereas short, fat females just don't look good. Other than using them for bowling balls they don't really serve much of a purpose. smile

    AND, kind sir, it's comments like this that cause 5'6 - 90 lb women to feel they are fat when they are not.  It's comments like this that conjure doubt in alot of women's eyes.  And, it's comments like this that cause alot of eating disorders.  And, I'm guessing that YOUR thin woman is your hand...and she happens to have 5 sisters.  How 'bout that, KIND SIR.

    most women are not fat however our bodies were made to bare children and set accordingly - you squeeze out 10 pounds from your penis and see how fast that baby fat just disappears  geez
