Everyone in this world complains either way - they're either too bony, or they're too flabby, they're too this, they're too that.
Which would you rather be - overweight or underweight? This is mostly an appearance question, but if you want you can bring other factors, like health, into it.
Just for the record, I have struggled with my weight the whole life, I am overweight (I'm not like an elephant, just filled out, curvy and a bit of a tummy on me sadly) but I would much rather be underweight. I think you get more health problems from being overweight and in this day and age, I think you're made to be more ashamed of yourself for being fat than thin.
Well.. during my teenage years, or basically all my life I've been struggling by maintaining(or actually achieving) normal weight proportionate for my height, I've always been a tall guy but way too skinny, and over all that my appetite is just terrible, I need to force myself to eat.
However I've achieved normal weight by gaining more muscle mass and my self-image now is in way better condition it used to be before.
Would it be better by being pre-"coded" to be fat? Definitely not.
A good shape means having more muscle, not more fat.
When you're naturally skinny - you just have to consume enough protein and to lift weights.
But if you're naturally fat - you have to do all that plus insane cardio to burn fat... but that at the same time can also conflict with your aim to gain muscle.. you can burn not just fat but also muscle, so being like that makes it way more difficult and tedious to achieve a good shape.
i would rather be too fat. because you can to do something about it. but if your too skinny, I think it will be very difficult to put any size on. I know loads of really guys, they are just struggling to put on size. by the no one ideal weight anyway. a couple of stone over is no big deal.
Furthermore, everybody will comment how great you look after you loose the weight. If you are skinny people are way meaner to you. I dated a girl that got anorexic at one point and I can tell you: fat is considered 'normal' but if you are underweight, people will call you a 'freak' in your face.
depends if your a guy or girl. double standard seems to make it more OK for guys to be overweight than under and the opposite for girls. trust me it sucks being a skinny guy that has to force themself to eat 'enough'. I assume its like a girl being heavy having a hard time losing weight
I don't consider myself "too thin" but I am underweight according to BMI's and stuff...which aren't always accurate but still. Anyways, I'm fine with my weight...although I have to be because it's impossible for me to gain any weight. So I'll go with too thin.
too fat. people who are too thin are just really sad to look at. I was underweight for most of my childhood, it was horrible having to overeat at every single meal. I'd fall asleep at the table 99% of the time from food comas
