Have you ever met any guys who are 40 or above, and they are still skinny?

I notice it's extremely rare to see a skinny guy who is 40 or above, but way common in 15 year old guys.

  • It's extremely rare to see skinny elderly people in general. But at 40 there's stil quite a few people on the thinner side, I'd say the metabolism/body of humans really only starts to deteriorate after 55-60.

  • Yes, it's quite common in my country. Men like to stay fit here, even when they're in their 40s and 50s. All the major "national hobbies" (traditional things practically everyone does in my country) have to do with outdoor sports: hiking and swimming in the summer and skiing in the winter. My dad is in his late 50s and he also goes mountain climbing and he's been doing salsa dancing for the past 15 years. So he's in pretty good shape. My grandpa was also very skinny up until his death.

      I don't want to build muscle though. That's why I avoid sports as much as possible.

      Not even slightly? My friend is 42 and plays hockey amd soccer. Neither of those leave him looking like a body builder. He stays pretty lean.

  • Yep, I've seen them around.

    • 2mo

      The ones that are rare at that age is the ones who are typically considered the hot body - athletic, wide shoulders and thinner waist...

    • 2mo

      I thought the athletic was way more common than the skinny in your 40s. Maybe differs from country to country.

    • 2mo

      Probably the difference in where you live...

  • Occasionally, but yes most people get bigger as they age

  • I haven't met any but I've seen some in public. It looks really off, like you look at them from behind and they seem like a teenager except with broader shoulders but then you step in front of them and notice the older faces which completely don't match the frail body at all.
