Boys: What Do You Consider As 'fat' For A Girl?

I think in this day and age the size zero is considerd the norm. (for some not me) is this just for celebrities or people in genral.

BMI measurements should be scraped. Many super fit athletes are classed as obese by that wack measurement. It doesnt take into consideration Muscle mass. Muscle weighs more than fat but is more compact.

Wow! What happened to this thread? Everything's been blown out of proportion.

I can understand David's point, though I was merely answering the original poster's question from a personal / preference view, rather than a medical / scientific one. I'm not qualified to give medical opinions, so I won't do so, kudos to those who have medical backgrounds though.

Jenny, you've said it all in your above post, exactly what I was trying to get across.

Siena is right , though I understand where david is coming from,but we aint talking about health issues here,we are not talking about BMi's here, the OP asked a question ,if she wanted a lecture on obesity and body weight she should have asked for it, nobody is talking about scientific proof here or what obesity does to a pregnant woman or expectant mother,no one is talking about what goes wrong with fat people medically, its just a simple question of what boys consider as fat for a gurl, ok even if you wanna disagree do so, without telling the other person that his posts makes no sense

And then comparing people with other users on Nairaland(like comparing someone with osisi), is another no no, if it was done out of a joke fine, but seriously?seriously

Ive said this before, Nairaland does not define a person,nairaland does not make you, some people act like feminists here, some people act like gold diggers that wont settle for any average dude, people post like kids on this forum alot, some people use swear words like under 20's here, but dont be surprised that these pple aint like that outside their key board and computer screen, why do we  take pples posts here seriously and assume that they are something which they might not be`?

Where I am from, MEN SEEKS THICK WOMEN (BIG BOOTY, bosoms, THIGHS, AND LEGS) If a woman has those assets I mentioned above, she is considered THICK, and if a woman is MORBID OBESE then she considered fat.

But, I have noticed that in Africa, if a woman is above a 12 she is considered fat which is shocking because size 12 -18 is average (most women are this size)

We do not use BMI system because each BODY IS DIFFERENT. There is ABSOLUTELY no TWO BODIES ALIKE. If you were to create a size 2 pants. You select five people to try the pants, you will have five DIFFERENT LOOKS. For example, a woman with big hips, big thigh, small hip, small thigh, and ample booty)

BMI was designed to give people an illusion of what they are supposed to be for their height/weight proportion even DOCTORS from where I am, do not use BMI system any more. It proven to be verY INACCURATE.

TO ALL THE PRIVATE CHUBBY CHASERS, DON'T HIDE WE KNOW YOU WATCHING!

That shld have been your very first response to what was posted here initially as it never involved you in any way. Thanks for finally taking the right decision . . .

as regards the claim that i am "beefing myself" . . . it seems you have an over-inflated idea of your own self-worth. Tone it down a bit . . . responding to you is basically for the purpose of setting the facts straight, not a measure of your importance.

To point out the inaccuracy in Siena's comment . . .

A lot of folks (who call themselves women by the way) claimed this as their own idea of "maturity". Unfortunately this is completely WRONG. A woman at size 18 needs to be at least 6ft 4 ins to be medically classed as "normal weight".

Too bad you have to spend so much time dealing with the illiterate on these boards.

Points of correction . . . pretty much for the sake of others not you . . .

1. The claim that my response is due to my "not liking the fact that women (really? I would class your ilk as pre-adolescent girls to be honest) here are praising him" is baseless. Siena makes tons of other comments that garner him "praise" that i rarely bother about. I simply responded to this on the basis that he is medically and FACTUALLY incorrect.

2. Lets define this over-used idea of "maturity". Based on your usage here . . . maturity = saying the things that women want to hear.

There really is no point flogging a dead horse . . . one can spot a malcontent a mile away.

For starters . . . the constant use of irresponsible swear words already diminishes whatever you purport to bring to the table.

Secondly, look at the sentence i highlighted in blue - the guy gave his opinion for chris sakes

Facts to be gleaned:

1. The guy (i.e. siena) gave his opinion.

2. I (davidylan) hence responded to that opinion with my own opinion.

3. NOWHERE is ayettymama involved in both situations. Siena did not indicate he had a problem responding to criticism of his viewpoint neither did i indicate at any point that i was interested in reading your response to my opinion.

bottomline is this - The issue here is NOT siena's statement nor my response . . . the issue here is your own inability to mind your own business. This unfortunately is the hallmark of the undisciplined . . .

faaaaaaaark

the guy gave his opinion for chris sakes

im sure u didnt even read what he sed

u just dont like the fact the women are here praisin him!!!

KAIII instead of u to take a page for his maturity i quote

All depends if the girl in question's in proportion.

If she's a size 16 - 18, and 5'10", with a clearly defined waistline, hips and upper body, with a fairly flat stomach, then I wouldn't class her as fat.

On the other hand, a girl at size 12 - 14, 5'2", with no defined waistline, a fairly large stomach, big arms and legs could be regarded as fat.

The other factor that hasn't been mentioned here - it depends on who's looking, and who's interested. People view the opposite gender differently.

the senseless can never see sense in sensibility

the guy did not generalise- he cave his candid opinion what he would and wont class as fact

he even added the fact that everyone would be different in what they look for

what is soo impossible in a man thinking this?? many have said the same thing in different words

gosh you boiz need to grow up already!

Don't get me wrong Siena is mature alright but I think this boils down to him saying what y'all want to hear.

Yes well for pear -shaped ladies they are at less risk then than apple-shaped ladies. It just points us to the fact that the circumference of the waist is the better predictor whether or not one is considered overweight according to BMI.

@ayettymama: last time I checked, Google wont tell anyone what "Nigerian BOYS" consider as fat. Neither is Siena, by himself, "Nigerian boys". Im gathering diverse opinions here, if you dont mind.

You would be partially correct except fat distribution in women above the age of puberty tends to center around the waistline and hips.

The irony here is that even you acknowledge one thing - the poster asked what the BOYS considered fat. Considering you're not a boy, you responding on this thread is baffling.

Neither did the poster ask that you enforce her "invisible rules". You are squarely at liberty to peruse and move on.

Hmm not so,  BMI is not a good predictor of diabetes risk, because its just a relationship/ratio between the height and the weight and not the fat distribution.The Circumference of the waist of the person in question is a better predictor of  diabetes.

the poster asked what the 'boys' considered fat

she didnt ask for the oxford definition of fat

she didnt say 'medical advice on obesity pls'

again i reiterate she didnt ask for a wikipedia breakdown on bmi

Anything beyond Beyonce is fat for me oo hahahaha.  I don't like bibe Yiyon (dry and roasted in Yoruba) either hahaahahhah. A little meat if she is short, she better be moderately and attractively curvy in the right places and not have 6 hips dropping on each other. To be honest it all boils down to her height. A short girl will look like sidibe if she is over 160lbs while a tall girl will look attractive in same weight. I just love black girls blessed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Funny how it's mostly girls posting on here.
