Explains the Asian fitness influencer rise (Asian body fat)

TLDR Asians carry more fat than whites (in America, at least).

Well yeah, the junk food and spices diet is hell on the hormones too. They evolved for multiple famines (especially the Chinese and Indians) so they tend to weight-gain like that, too. Fat deposition isn’t the same between race (black thighs/’ass’) so why would accumulation patterns and proclivity to gain work like that either?

Results: A convenient sample of 1626 adults with BMIs ≤35 was evaluated. Independent percentage body fat predictor variables in multiple regression models included 1/BMI, sex, age, and ethnic group (R values from 0.74 to 0.92 and SEEs from 2.8 to 5.4% fat). The prediction formulas were then used to prepare provisional healthy percentage body fat ranges based on published BMI limits for underweight (<18.5), overweight (≥25), and obesity (≥30).

Conclusion: This proposed approach and initial findings provide the groundwork and stimulus for establishing international healthy body fat ranges.

But they’re not the same. Bio-logically.

 

The Asian ‘gym girls’ also trying to pass off the manjaw as ‘gains’ by matching on the stomach and thighs, I’ve seen white lawyer types do the same. Do NOT fall for it, men. If the jaw is square and broad as a child and pre-teen, RUN.


The small, squat (squarish) skeleton and pedomorphic features of the Asian race (historically, accurately called Mongoloid if you can search for it in anthropology) already pre-dispose their young people (teens) to lower BMI anyway, so the ‘losing weight’ excuse is bullshit, they’re building muscle to match the jaw and trap some sucker with their high T and bad temper. This lower BMI is not a consequence of health (dietary or genetic) so compared to the unhealthiest white people EVER (sorry America) they still have higher BMIs. HOW.

White women have a naturally high BMI (taller, curves) so it’s actually worse than it looks. The effect is maintained in every age group, how can one fuck up age 20? Any 20yo complaining about their metabolism needs a slap.
The fat Asian hypothesis also holds true within the race, compared the Asian men to women matching age.


IF ONLY THE MANOSPHERE ACTUALLY READ THE DATA.
Every other claim about Asians it’s like [citation needed] yet when I go to look…. they lied.
I expected the one claim the weebs consistently made about Asians in America (being thin) must be true but … no.

18.5 is a terrible BMI cut-off because it includes anorexics, smokers, druggies and petite women all in one. Women look wildly different at low and too-low body fats, which also varies by race. At the same BMI, Asians look more husky because the skeleton is squared-off. They’re also likelier to lay down fat than muscle.

The Asians are larger than white women pre-menopause, what EXCUSE is there?
The only time whites actually have slightly higher BMIs (ever so slightly) is in the elderly range (60-79, at which point yeah you’re excused, you can go).
I’m seeing through the model minority propaganda and there’s nothing to it.
Rule #1 of moving to America – DON’T GET FAT. YOU HAD ONE JOB.

“In contrast, models for Asians predicted a different percentage body fat from that predicted for African Americans and whites. “

That’s code for ‘they evolved so much for famine that we had to invent new maths to count it’.

“For example, Deurenberg et al (35) found that American blacks had a 1.3-unit lower and Polynesians a 4.5-unit higher BMI than whites with the same body fatness (35). Even within the white cohort, the investigators observed small differences between Americans and Europeans.”

Asian placement is denser. Squat Mongoloid skeleton, anthropologically. If you disagree, it’s cope.

Americans are mixed white, generally, that’s why. German/French hybrids and other nonsense. You lose adaptive advantage from your subrace too.

They studied one of the thinnest types of Asians (japs) so I guarantee you others would be worse.

“The underlying causes of ethnic variation in relations between BMI and percentage body fat are likely due to small between-center body fat measurement differences and biological between-group differences (35).”

“The evaluation of Asians was confined to Japan and that of African Americans to the United States. Therefore, the underlying causes of observed ethnic differences in terms of measurement, environmental, and genetic factors are difficult to ascertain. Nevertheless, it appears evident that a single set of universal percentage body fat ranges cannot be easily developed without considerable additional analysis of this problem. Our equations and associated tables provide several ethnic-specific ranges as working guidelines. Because African Americans and whites differed only slightly in percentage body fat (by 1–2%) after BMI was first controlled for, we presented a combined equation (Equation 5) and table (Table 4) based on 4C percentage body fat for these 2 groups.”

That’s right, our fat deposition is more alike blacks than Asians. That’s how different the races are.

In a study surprising no one, high BMI also predicts depression.
http://www.psypost.org/2018/01/study-finds-high-body-mass-index-predicts-increases-depressive-symptoms-50586
Because depression is caused by INFLAMMATION, it’s an inflammatory condition!
The visceral fat is causing it, not the subcutaneous (which you need to live and is important for a woman’s hormones, gym girls are a mess).
So the #fitspo girls eating junk are STILL ‘depressed’ and on SSRIs.

So pleasant waifu disposition goes out the window.

Why bother?

Background: Asians who have a healthy body mass index (BMI) range have been observed to have higher levels of obesity and risk of cardiovascular disease than whites, which suggests that the relation between BMI and adiposity may be different for Asians.

Objective: The primary aim of this study was to investigate the influence of childhood and adolescent exposure to a westernized environment on the relation between BMI and percentage body fat in young Asian American women.

So no, this isn’t their age. No cope here son.

Design: Secondary data from 129 Asian women, aged 20–25 y, with variable lengths of residence in the United States and 327 white women of comparable ages who had participated in the Latina and Asian Bone Health Study (1999–2000) and the Berkeley Bone Health Study (1998–2000), respectively, were analyzed by using multiple linear regression with percentage body fat as the outcome variable and place of birth, ethnicity, length of US residency, and BMI as predictor variables.

Results: Asians who lived in the United States <12 y showed the same relation between BMI and percentage body fat as did whites. In contrast, Asians who had lived in the United States ≥12 y had higher percentage body fat than did whites for BMIs (in kg/m2) <20.5 and lower percentage body fat for BMIs in the overweight and obese range.

Responding to the same stimuli wildly differently > genetic!

They’re more likely skinny-fat, aka fatal fat.

Whites evolved to eat Roman grains like processed wheat.

Conclusions: Our findings suggest that childhood environments may influence the relation between BMI and adiposity. Research is warranted on the role that childhood environments play in the accumulation and distribution of body fat and hence metabolic disease risk later in life.

There’s still a huge difference in the same environment.

Asians with more years in the United States had higher mean percentage body fat than did whites at low BMIs and lower mean percentage body fat at high BMIs with the regression lines intersecting at BMI ≈20.5 and body fat of 26.5%.

THANK YOU.

Again, Magic Dirt isn’t real. Enjoy your BBW Ting Tong for your golden years.

We are supremely jealous.

Asian-immigrant adults who were living in North America were observed to have higher adiposity levels

translation: chunkier

at the same BMI level than did whites (6). However, most of the Asian-immigrant adults studied were raised outside of North America. To our knowledge, our study was among the first studies to observe a difference in how BMI relates to percentage body fat between Asian Americans who had spent more years of childhood in the United States compared with Asian Americans who were minimally exposed to the United States during childhood and adolescence.

Lesson for weebs – do NOT move the Thai bride to America.

Stay in Asia or do NOT bother. She WILL get fat. You have been warned.

American-born Asians had a higher percentage of mothers with college degrees (59% of mothers compared with 37% of mothers in foreign-born Asians and 32% of mothers in whites).

Fat SJWs, great catch!

in our study, which suggested that obesity rates in our sample of Asians were likely lower than in the general population.

They admit it.

Is the general observation that, at the same BMI level, Asians have higher total body fat and visceral fat and higher risk of cardiovascular disease risk than do whites applicable to Asians in general,

yes

or is this observation applicable only to Asians living in Asian societies? If the latter, does the environment during early life influence how body fat accumulates and distributes and, therefore, affects the relation between BMI and body fat? How strong a predictor of child growth and body composition is socioeconomic background and, in particular, the mother’s education? Are our findings also applicable to men?

We concluded that the early life environment may influence the relation between BMI and adiposity in later life. In particular, we speculated that Asian women substantially exposed to the American environment early in life exhibited different patterns of accumulation of body fat than did Asian women raised in Asia;

non-sig, see above

these differences may be partially attributable to environmental and lifestyle factors that affected diet and physical activity. For example, compared with Asian children raised in the United States, children who live in Asia tend to spend more time studying, whether in school or at home, and less time doing sports and engaging in recreational activities (25). In the past, diets of Asians raised in Asia also tended to be different, with a lower consumption of breakfast cereals, dairy products, and processed meats, than diets of Asians raised in the United States (26).

Yes, they do try to eat white. Silly Asians, didn’t evolve for dairy.

So your grandkids will definitely be fat, even if she isn’t by some fluke? Great, very likely to pass on your genome.

What a waste of time and resources.

However, with the rapid changes that have been taking place in Asian economies and the globalization of the food supply, we expect to see further changes in the diets of children in Asia (27) and, consequently, in body composition.

The understanding of how childhood environments influence the relation between BMI and percentage body fat has implications for the use of BMI as a screening indicator for obesity and obesity-related conditions. In addition, research to understand the influence of environmental factors on the accumulation and distribution of total body fat and metabolically active visceral fat during critical life stages will add insight into the use of clinically relevant screening tools for chronic disease risk.

Plan on growing old together, spending a loooong time with fatass.

In this observational study with a short follow-up of elderly Asian people, higher amounts of visceral fat, a marker for central obesity, were associated with decreased all-cause mortality.

South Asian v White men

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1950568/

Objective

South Asians are susceptible to insulin resistance even without obesity. We examined the characteristics of body fat content, distribution and function in South Asian men and their relationships to insulin resistance compared to Caucasians.

so no, you can’t tell by ‘looking at her’, your norms are informed by white women

Research Design and Methods

Twenty-nine South Asian and 18 Caucasian non-diabetic men (age 27±3 and 27±3 years, respectively) underwent euglycemic-hyperinsulinemic clamp for insulin sensitivity, underwater weighing for total body fat, MRI of entire abdomen for intraperitoneal (IP) and subcutaneous abdominal (SA) fat and biopsy of SA fat for adipocyte size.

Results

Compared to Caucasians, in spite of similar BMI, South Asians had higher total body fat (22±6 and 15±4% of body weight; p-value<0.0001), higher SA fat (3.5±1.9 and 2.2±1.3 kg, respectively; p-value = 0.004), but no differences in IP fat (1.0±0.5 and 1.0±0.7 kg, respectively; p-value = 0.4). SA adipocyte cell size was significantly higher in South Asians (3491±1393 and 1648±864 µm2; p-value = 0.0001) and was inversely correlated with both glucose disposal rate (r-value = −0.57; p-value = 0.0008) and plasma adiponectin concentrations (r-value = −0.71; p-value<0.0001). Adipocyte size differences persisted even when SA was matched between South Asians and Caucasians.

Marry those genes, go ahead.

Conclusions

Insulin resistance in young South Asian men can be observed even without increase in IP fat mass and is related to large SA adipocytes size. Hence ethnic excess in insulin resistance in South Asians appears to be related more to excess truncal fat and dysfunctional adipose tissue than to excess visceral fat.

in the men

harsh to call a racial adaptation to famine ‘dysfunctional’

Don’t use Caucasian for White people

It’s wrong on every level and you sound outdated.

Tell me if your humours are balanced next. How about some phlogiston?

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/gnxp/2011/01/stop-using-the-word-caucasian-to-mean-white/#.WW-vGoTyvZ4

http://mentalfloss.com/article/50202/why-are-white-people-called-caucasian

Forensics and gene research also show it’s misleading.

“Blumenbach’s Caucasians weren’t even strictly white or European, as the term is commonly used today.”

http://www.straight.com/blogra/526526/five-reasons-why-we-should-stop-calling-white-people-caucasian

Indians, for example, are Asian, not White. DNA tests exist.
Even the SJWs agree with me on this.

“But “Caucasian” is an erroneous term. And, although many people use it to avoid sounding racist, the continued usage of this term actually perpetuates racism and Eurocentrism.”

The science is just plain false.

“It’s “highly unlikely” that white people came out of the Caucasus region in Eurasia.”

It’s literally wrong.

There are discussions of how white Jews are, exclusively by the term Caucasian.
https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/12/are-jews-white/509453/

“Later laws limited the number of immigrants from certain countries, restrictions which were in part targeted at Jews. But unlike Asian and African immigrants in the late 19th century, Jews retained a claim to being “Caucasian,” meaning they could win full citizenship status based on their putative race.”

Sneaky.

https://www.sapiens.org/column/race/caucasian-terminology-origin

What can we do to change it? We need to acknowledge that the word “Caucasian” is still around and that its continued use is problematic. We should use terms that are more accurate, such as “European-American.” Doing so would at least be consistent with the use of descriptive terms like “African-American,” “Mexican-American,” and others that signify both a geographical and an American ancestry.”

I agree.

Do cosmetics make white women more attractive?

http://dienekes.blogspot.co.uk/2008/05/makeup-and-female-caucasian.html

TLDR: Yes.

Quit telling women off for using it then.

Men can use make-up too (and do, just a dab of concealer).

It’s telling lipstick does nothing, because it doesn’t change the lips per se.

But foundation, approximating youthful even tone and smoothness from oestrogen and eye-makup, signalling better health, worked a charm. Bone structure becomes more apparent (genetic quality).

Why are black women less attractive than the others?

It fails to split Asia despite the great variance, but nevermind.

The Magic White Man

– swooping in at our own expense to “save the world” as if that’s noble instead of giving the enemy tribe the weapons to kill you with. Oh, pathological altruism...
http://uncabob.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/the-magic-white-man.html

…The post below this one? The one about the illegal immigrant criminal Third Worlder who tattooed his eyes and went blind, and then showed up begging the white man to fix his eyes? What does he think we are? Magicians? Jesus? We make the blind see? We can do anything? Criminal attack us and we forgive and wave our wands – poof! I can see!

I’ve written about this before – the Magic White Man. A lot of this has to do with the hate and envy of white men, who created nearly everything in the world, contrary to the protestations of others.

I sometimes wonder what it’s like to belong to all those groups who can’t do much of anything, when they look at the history of white European Christian culture, and what it has produced. They must be eaten alive with envy and hate. And with envy you attack and denigrate…. [until the next ‘disaster’]

superman drinking give up nope

I’ve run across those who hope for the elimination of white people. What do they think is going to happen? That all the wealth created by us will just stay there for them to enjoy? No, it’ll disappear, and they’ll be shocked beyond belief.

don draper crying baby wah wah wah

They’ll die. They are dependents, like children. As parasites, without a host, they will die.

If you want the fruit, you’ve gotta tend the tree.
If you want White Culture, Technology and Money, you’d better keep the golden geese alive.

Some year ago I read an article about some blacks in south Africa, who tried to farm. It didn’t work out at all, so they demanded white farmers help them farm. Not show them how to do it, but do the farming.

Ah, slavery. Counter Narrative, we never hear about it in MSM.
Now there’s a genocide of whites ongoing in Africa. Something like 7/8 on this special scale, so expect them to have another ‘food shortage’ soon. It’s like the people who live in the desert and wonder where the water is.
In nature, stupidity is the only universal capital crime; the sentence is death, there is no appeal, and execution is carried out automatically and without pity.” ~ Robert Heinlein

Soon, I expect the blacks in south Africa and “Zimbabwe” to beg the white man to move back, after everything collapses to 2000 BC….

China is moving in. Party time. We don’t owe them jack. Let the East handle them. They bought a lemon.

Cultural concessions: Elsa is racist?

http://therightstuff.biz/2014/12/28/race-and-dildos-in-disneys-frozen/

This is where I out myself as an avid Disney fan. Have mercy.

Princesses are an original European tradition, yes, based in Monarchy, that evil thing we’re supposed to resent in a democracy. *hums God Save the Queen* There are a few Arabian princesses, but even their Princes go for white blue-eyed European ancestry in choosing a wife. Ouch. Real Arabian princesses aren’t actually princesses, the tradition and power involved was stolen borrowed from Europe, beforehand an unmarried woman under Sharia had no real title or status, and the women in that role to this day are basically hostages. I don’t think they count as princesses. Non-European princesses are trying to appropriate European culture, from a feminist standpoint.
Africans had priestesses in each tribe before Christianity came along and gave them medicine. A film based on that would be interesting indeed.

…So I actually hope that the left keeps pushing this issue hard. I hope that they continue to attack and corner white people that try to console them. I hope they push it to the point that whites get that nothing will ever be good enough, there is no settlement that can be made. If you are white, you are a target and that’s it. There is no way out. There is no way short of killing yourself to be non-racist, so you may as well embrace your own identity….

Put it this way: if there was an entire decade of black Disney princess films at the exclusion of others, they’d call it patronizing. You can’t win. I find it unusual how these new types of Princess, now a third personality style (or you could say, a Third Wave) have none of the gentle wit, charm, sweetness, grace or bearing et cetera of an actual princess, an important social role in a monarchy with such responsibilities. The first form of princess did (Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty), the second had less but other redeeming qualities, more of a modern update (Belle, Ariel, Mulan) and this third lot seem to have little to mark them out as nobility or upper caste class at all.

I think they’ll follow the money.

The Guardian: Thomas the Tank Engine is racist, because black smoke is evil

article

Every so often the Guardian disappears up its own arse.

“(For the record, all the “villains” on Thomas and Friends are the dirty diesel engines. I’d like to think there was a good environmental message in there, but when the good engines pump out white smoke and the bad engines pump out black smoke – and they are all pumping out smoke – it’s not hard to make the leap into the race territory.)”

Actually it is almost impossible to make that leap, yet Van Slyke manages it anyway, quickly forgetting that the show is about steam engines, and that light vs dark in terms of good and evil is a notion that far predates the Equality Commission.

Next from the loony left: Why LOST was racist. Why little black dresses are racist. And why Conclave is racist. Oh wait… They’ve done that one already.

But jokes aside there’s a pretty serious outcome from this Van Slyke article that I want some answers to.

By exposing her children to this endless twaddle (remember, the above is only the stuff she feels comfortable publishing) the author is projecting her bizarro notions of class, race, work, and of course the must have guilt burden of the season: the environment, onto her unassuming and likely uncaring kids.

Why should children be lumbered with the distressing political correctness of their parents in lieu of a guilt free, enjoyable childhood?

They shouldn’t be. It is a mild yet damaging form of child abuse. And Van Slyke and the Guardian are encouraging if not demanding it.
