BMI over 25.
http://www.nhlbisupport.com/bmi/bmi-m.htm

gives you some idea, but not accurate for all body types
I once measured my BMI. It put me right in the middle of the perfect weight range for my height.

However, I'm quite slim.

Apparently, a better way of working out whether you are too fat is to use calipers and measure at specific points (waist, backs of upper arms etc).

Then you use a look-up table to discover the amount of body fat.
Stuff like height and build and muscle mass (which skew the BMI results) then become fairly irrelevant.

However, to be honest, do people really need to do some measurements/calculations to inform them that they ought lose or gain weight? Surely in most cases where there are no psychological or physiological problems, it's fairly clear? And if it's not a health-threatening weight problem then why worry, life's too short.

Have you not been told the member's effective length reduces if you have more fat around the abs? Same principle here.
Measure up to that , Size doesn't matter,its what you do it, be it your belly or your member.

Absolutely agree, the BMI thing is bollocks. At least in the way it is used by a lot of people/organizations. I can write a thesis chapter on this subject

Yeah, that is true..I know people with pretty healthy and normal BMI and with weight related problems, back, fertility, hormons as a response to fat, etc..I was always classed as underweight, when for my body type and metabolism I was perfectly normal and healthy. It is the same as those wacky baby growth charts. Ton of peds will tell you your child is unhealthy if it does not fit the brackets, when it is not true. Besides, we finally have two types of growth charts now, thankfully, depending what the baby is fed. So, the point of reference should be always how "normal" things are related to you in the past being healthy.

And.....erm...somebody told me once, yes, belly can have an awesome function in female orgasming, it was the pressure put on the specific spot on lower abdomen, the what's it called bone down there. So, let's cherish those, who can work with their bellies (and, again, I am not talking so morbidly obese that the belly has a life on its own).

You just ruined my lunch plan, I have a great home made pumpkin soup aging well in frigo, with beans, cinammon and ton of ginger This image will hunt me for ever...Running is great. The only biatch is, I don't have a female friend who would be into it, can't run on paved surface, and the nice woods around here for running, which I would prefer to zip into, I don't dare going there on my own, not frequented enough.

The lint talk was fun, where were we...? Farming? Jayzum.

I simply cannot imagine how a woman (OK, i am assuming you mean a woman when you say "others") can rub against a fuzzy tummy, defo beyond my realm of imagination . Unless you care to explain the mechanics most people won't have a clue what you are talking about.
I shall repeat; I did not say the woman was sitting on the tummy. But these sort of secrets best be left for discovery.

Edit: MusicChick has given it away!

Quote:
Yes, it depends on how the umbilical cord was cut, how the wound healed etc., (obviously mate, ), but it also depends on the amount of fat around the belly button. It is possible that you were thin in your youth, yet had belly fat... I don't mean everyone with an innie has to be fat, just that having belly fat means you are far more likely to be an innie.

Have you not been told the member's effective length reduces if you have more fat around the abs? Same principle here.
Actually the opposite is true in my experience: as I put on a bit of a belly, my innie became less pronounced as it was pushed out. Regardless, you're either an innie or an outie. You're either with us or against us.

As for your multiple attempts to link our bellys with our member's length, me thinks one does protest too much.

In related news, I pulled out some good lint last night at poker. I put it back in as I don't think Clare would appreciate my depositing in her apt.

Same reason why I ended up participating in this thread while pot belly is of no relevance to me. used to be a happy thin guy, fitter than 90% of my batchmates during the Air Force boot camp (seriously good test of all aspects of fitness including cold, hunger, sleep deprivation, endurance, power, resistance to illness etc.) I was among the 5 odd guys to come out of it unscathed from a batch of 65. yet I was always the outlier, made conscious of that...which explains my interest in this subject...and might come across as a bit hypocritical.

I still think many people over-think about weight. Personally I would love to have a body like litespeed. If I were him, I would just stay happy and active, whatever weight I was. Instead of going thru' cycles of weight gains and losses, the risks of which many people ignore in the bid to reach the "ideal" BMI. Sounds a bit cliched, but to me 'ideal BMI" is about as meaningful as "ideal nose length".

OK, I get it now. I was being too imaginative HB: I agree with you now, sorry.

Oops, sorry. People say it is true, though. If a guy is not so fat that he can have his and her thighs touch while having fun the stereotypical way, the pressure speeds things up.

Besides, if sitting on men's bellies would give chicks nice big Os, I think they would spare themselves the troubles and just ride horses or donkeys, hahaha..

I hate to spoil the innie/outie fun, but it depends on how the umbellical cord was cut. The weight is related, true, later on in life, it pulls, but principally, innies had a professional cut the cord at a proper length, the outies might have happened as a brainfart, the cord was cut leaving the stump too long from the belly, didn't have a chance to fully tuck itself in. Some docs check the cord properly and supervise the development or help the cord tuck in, 1wk-2wk after the delivery, some don't do it. Then you end up with an outie.

Well, as I said elsewhere (and then felt like a thread killer for a bit)... I did date a rather large guy - not anywhere near as large as the guy in that picture floating around lately though - and we had plenty of fun. Things happened I always had thought were fake. He was a tough one to give up, too bad it turned out he was a complete jackass.

I don't really want to into detail as first of all, I've met some of ya'll and I think that you and I equally would prefer not to picture me having sex.
Second of all, I would feel like I'm writing to "Letters to Penthouse" or something like that... if I were interested in doing that, I'd send it off to someone who'd pay for such writings rather than posting it here.

Today I went for a run at lunchtime in the warm October sun, with clear views of the snow-capped mountains - fantastic.

Upon my return, I had a couple of quick bowls of my wife's home-made Pumpkin and chestnut soup and an apple.



See both of the above. I bet my lunchtime today was just as enjoyable as Phil MCR's, yesterday. You don't need to give anything up.
pumpkin and chestnut diet food as good as my freshly baked trillion calorie chocolate pudding?



i don't think so!

Re: Men are embarassed by their pot bellies

another advantage of being fat: you last 4 times longer in bed:

Quote:
According to the Erciyes University in Turkey, men with excess amounts of body fat develop more female sexual hormones that could influence their performance. Men with high fat levels had more of the female sex hormone oestradiol, which disrupts the body’s stasis during sex, and makes them last longer while they’re doing it. Fat men lasted an average of 7.3 minutes having wild, sweaty sex, whilst skinny men only lasted 1.8 minutes.
1.8 minutes? seriously??

Why should it, if a potbelly can last longer then a skinny bloke , he would also need a bit longer to reload.

Its quality you are after, not quantity

Potbellies have one thing the skinny ones don't have.. we have more cushion for the pushing , oew yeah
