If both of your parents are overweight how likely is the child to be overweight?
It is very likely that the child will be overweight if it has overweight parents. Obviously eating habits of overweight people are passed on to their children along with genes and the lack of motivation for physical activity.

Some men don't, some men do. It's often a matter of taste. However, it's worth pointing out that people can change over time. Someone who initially liked only fat girls may end up liking thin ones, and someone who initially liked only thin girls might later have heavier tastes. In addition, a gir…l who was initially fat might lose weight. Or a slim girl might get fat. And that's just accounting for people's physical preferences. Many people will value personality traits equally or above physical appearance. I've edited out the other answers because: A) My answer was similar to some of them B) Some of the answers didn't actually answer the question or went too off-topic C) Some of them were just insulting other people (MORE)
Ah, how general a question! Naturally, there are women who like overweight guys just as there are guys who like overweight women. The real question is: will YOU accept the woman who accepts you? Advice to those who may be in high school: having a girl is not as important to your future now as concen…trating on your studies and goals. There is someone for everyone. Just be yourself and the person who appreciates your personality will like you wether you are fat or skinny. Just like a key that fits the right door. There is a person that fits the right mate. Have fun meeting and enjoying the company of others and don't get stressed over it. It just depends on the girl, and the guy's personality. If the girl is a nice carring girl, chances are she wouldn't mind. As long as the guy is nice to the girl, and respects her, then it should be ok. (MORE)
First of all I think you would see it if a child is overweight, so use your eyes. Also look out for increased BMI, increased abdominal girth. To be sure check a doctor.
Indeed \n. \nI dislike skinny guys personally, I date men with a little weight on them, all women have different likes and dislikes but trust me many women like men that are far from skinny. \n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nEvery person is different. Every one has different ideas of "attractive". …Don't get caught in the hype that you must be skinny to be attractive, it's often dangerous. (MORE)
Overweight is generally defined as having more body fat than isoptimally healthy. Being overweight is a common condition,especially where food supplies are plentiful and lifestyles aresedentary. Actually, being overweight is defined as a BMI over 25.0. It doesnot necessarily (it usually does, but n…ot always) mean that youhave too much body fat. Just as an example, bodybuilders who have alot of muscle can also be overweight (but are athletic).Regardless, it's usually better to try to maintain a healthy weightand avoid being overweight or obese with a healthy balanced dietand proper exercise.

No, some do not. Others, however, do. They realise that the person is more important.
Attractiveness is subjective and dependent on the perception of an individual. People of different ethnicity's, heights, weights and ages are found attractive. There's no such thing as universal beauty. And don't forget pheromone's!
I think it is because of the standards of the human body on the television. They make all the thin, ripped guys the main focus. We are never shown an overweight man as a sex symbol. We have grown to learn that there is a standard and people tend to be influenced my celebrities. Also women are tau…ght to hate fat. Many women's fashion magazines and women focused media teaches them that being fat is a character flaw in themselves. So naturally women externalize this to other people, hence a major insult with women is being called fat. (MORE)
If you are overweight and think that you are unattractive what can you do to get a girl to like you?
Being nice works sometimes. . Answer . If you think you are fat and ugly and trying to get a beautiful girls attetion somehow, think about it what do you really like about this girl if for some reason this girl makes fun of you or doesnt pay attention to you what so ever then she is probably no…t worth it, move on. So just find someone you can relate to or have in common with. Ask someone who you think you can relate to and ask her out, then maybe your get somewhere, maybe you wont, but at least you tried. Second, dont get so hard on yourself, dont be going for girls for there looks because that will always be hard to deal with when it comes with rejection, like the movie " Shallow Hal ", if you havnt seen it you should its a real good movie. Third, if you think you are fat and ugly, do something to make yourself feel more confident, dont just sit around and do nothing, make your self useful and try doing exercise, buy new waredrobe, shave, make yourself esteem increase then later who knows maybe one day you will fall in love with a girl just as much as she will love you too.. Answer . You can not make anyone like you. All you can do is to be a real person, by that I mean to be the best that you can be. Accentuate your positive qualities and work on improving the not so good ones. There are girls out there that do look past the physical. Be a gentleman, treat all women with respect and don't be discouraged when a girl rejects you without knowing the real you. (MORE)
Answer . I gained 20 pounds after i had my child, you can do your hair nice and use a little makeup, have you made your feelings apparent to him?
Yes, of course! Just as men can find overweight women attractive,women can do the same. It all depends on personal preferences. Somemay want their man to be kind of thick, some may want a man wholikes to wear eye-liner, you never know. But don't think that womendon't think overweight men aren't attr…active because that's totallynot true. Answer Bottom line is, your weight isn't that important. Its yourpersonality that women will like. So many guys think they have tobe all buff and that to get a hot chick, when actually its allabout personality. I have a couple of heavy set buddies and theyare constantly having women chasing after them...not because oftheir size, its their personalities. Women like guys that areconfident, humorous and can just be themselves....not trying toimpress them with how "cool" they are. Just be yourself and beconfident in who you are! (MORE)

Answer . Because your child does not only have your DNA they have the DNA of both the father and the mother. In that case, they may pick up features of either, or other features from grandparents, etc, that is there in a parents DNA.. Answer . Firstly, that is not always the case. In the ca…se of myself, I am blonde and blue eyed and require glasses whilst my parents are both black-haired with green eyed with no such requirement.. Secondly, there are two parents and genes are taken from each of them forming several pairs of chromosomes. Within each pair one gene from each section will be dominant out of the two. Since there is a one in several billion chance of every decision forming a clone of one parent, the offspring look different (MORE)
There are many sources to blame for this perception: the media, culture, nurturing, and personal bias. The fact is that this is an attitude that changes at the whims of time. Many things affect how people view things and their personal tastes. The fact is that there is no reliable tracker of the per…ceptions of ALL people. there are probably as many men who are attracted to large women as there are those who are attracted to thin women, and athletic women, short women, tall women, women with different hair color, foot sizes, breast sizes, posterior sizes, etc. Personal tastes are personal, and only the individual can answer for them.

I know from my experience, being overweight is not fun. For me, I was teased a lot in school and even now because of it. I had people poke me in the stomach and even push me to the ground to see if I would bounce. My father and some of my family members always had a comment about my weight. I could …never confront them because I knew that they would have some terrible comments to say to me so I kept my opinions to myself. (MORE)
The reasons why men like overweight girls varies: 1. These women tend to be more passive and make the men feel more like men. 2. The women may be perceived as emotionally stronger. They are used to put-downs and tend not to be as superficial. 3. The men just have a fetish for large women. S…ome of these are attracted to women who have a weight gain fetish, and thus their fetishes complement each other's.. (MORE)
Yeah why not? The thing is, if he is attracted to you he is attracted to you. Just because you may be overweight does not mean you can't get a hot guy; big women get hot guys all the time. Beauty is subjective. I'm one of the more popular boys in my class,and I have turned down many a skimpy ch…ick (the ones other boys call "hot") for "over weight" girls. By the way, in my words, you would probably be "curvy." Curvy= HOT (MORE)
It depends on the person perspective on there weight. Did you know in some countries being overweight is atractive and the only way to get married? The skinny and pretty people in the country are consitured UGLY. I for one think being overweight its stressful. I hate it, it makes me want to never …go out in publice. I dont feel confurtable in the clothes I wear. I'm 50 pounds overweight and I'm only 14. I'm 5"4 in hight. I, on the other hand, like being overweight. I used to be skinny, before I hit puberty around 11. But then I started getting fat. I am about 40 pounds overweight, and have been for a few years. I would say I was "fat" when I was 15. I like having a belly, but I do notice it. It hangs over my pants, and people notice it. My friends like to make comments about the size of my belly, but I don't care. I am fine with going out in public. I know my belly shows through my shirt, and I don't care. I like having my shirt off at parks and the like. (MORE)
chances are you don't actually have weight issues--you're probably just self conscious--and even if you do, it shouldn't matter to the guy. Appearance comes after personality, always.
Umm. I not entirely sure. But from what I've seen, he's attracted to the olsen twins, Angelina jolie, heidi klum. And their all skinny. --- no he wouldn't --- Bill is a sweetheart, I'm positive he would. It also depends on how overweight are we talking like 250 or are we talking like 45…0? lol I think someone who looks decent and is making a decent effort to lose weight to be healthy would be appreciated. Bill likes girls that look cute, you can be overweight and cute. Bill probably just has not met any girl that was overweight that he was interested in. Bill believes in love at first sight, and when he sees the girl he will like her. If she happens to be overweight than so be it. *shrugs* I'm overweight, and I'm making a conscientious effort to lose weight. I've lost 6 lbs in 2 months. (: --and I'm not doing it so i can 'look good for bill' I'm doing it to make myself healthier. Bill likes girls that like how they look and feel good about themselves. its a self esteem thing. (MORE)
1. You should encourage healthy eating habits.. 2. You should encourage excercise (doing together is the best idea).
Who is the most overweight child in the world and how old is the child and what does he or she weigh?
There is no way of knowing and, even if there was, the most overweight child in the world may not want to be discussed on the Internet or anywhere else. Everyone is entitling to his or her privacy , especially a child.
You cannot get someone to like you without compromising who you really are. Trying to change to suit someone else never works. Now, this means you as a person. That being said, you can make some improvements that make up the total you. We all can. If you feel your weight is interfering with your rel…ationships, then take the steps you need to improve. If it is physical, you have the ability to enhance your desirability, such as losing weight, dressing appropriately, grooming, personal hygiene etc. But, do it for yourself. You will look and feel better physically and emotionally. Other benefits will follow. Also, let your personality show through. A guy isn't worth it if all they care about is your appearance. (MORE)
Many people look at others who are overweight and assume that they must be lazy and eat lots of unhealthy foods. This is not always the case and our weight is not always something we are in control of. Metabolism problems are one reason why people are overweight. Some people who are overweight do ea…t very healthy and exercise regularly. There are many reasons for having a slow metabolism. This may include genetics or even hormonal disorders. For example, my mother has a thyroid disorder and she is overweight. She is constantly eating healthy and she exercises for hours everyday. There is nothing she can do about this problem, there is not medical cure. This just goes to show people that they shouldn't judge others before they know the situation that those people are in. Our weight is not always as easy to control as people may think. (MORE)
all of dem in might be in der DNA of sumtin but u ain't gunna have a obese child and their parents be fat ? i don't make sence :P
As a rule of thumb, the diet needs to be free of empty/junk calories. Frequent small meals (five or six a day) are better than skipping meals or eating larger quantities less often. Other options to choose for children's diets with concerns about obesity in mind . would be: lower fat (no fast food…, no fried foods), lower sugar and other simple carbohydrates, higher fruit and vegetable content and low glycemic index complex carbohydrates, and normal amounts of lean proteins (especially fish and poultry). . A very good daily strategy for reduction of obesity in kids is the 5 2 1 0 Strategy : Five servings of fruits and vegetables, two hours of exercise, one hour of TV maximum, and zero sugar intake. . This strategy is best implemented through a well thought out plan of complete family participation. (MORE)
is that a joke question, of course they are overweight. Depending on their age they could be severely overweight, say an 8 year old child or just overweight, like a 12 year old who is semi tall for their age. Either way, the child needs a treadmill.
It depends and if you really like him than tell him or ask him out. The worst he can do is say no and there will be two or three days of weird silence and then everything will go back to normal and lastly if you call our self fat and ugly than you will never have the courage to ask him out and you n…ever will.

Is it true that weight recommendation are same for both genders adult Since both gender takes 25BMI and above as overweight if so aren't males more likely to be overweight if some are more muscular?
Overweight is a term used with being overweight as a result of fat content. Also, males and females have different weight standards.
Most importantly increase activity. Limit fatty and sugary foods. Provide healthy and satisfying alternatives. And set a good example by doing all the above yourself.
One of the easiest ways is to check the Body Mass Index. There are many sites to do this. See the related link.
Probably because girls like hot boys Unless the girl is ugly to. First try asking if she likes you cause that helps.if she doesnt too bad.
You cant. You have to wait until someone sees you for you and likes you. Just be yourself.
They may eat too much food but, on the other hand, they may well be insulin resistant, which can create a predisposition to gain weight easily (from normal amounts of food) and to experience great difficulty losing weight (even though making a good attempt). . Lack of exercise, poor choice in fo…ods (too much fast food). Sometimes it's a medical condition, but that is the exception not the rule. . Refined (processed) carbohydrates are a major cause of insulin resistance, weight gain, obesity, and many diet related diseases. If you are unsure what constitutes a refined processed carbohydrate, for a list see the page link, further down this page, listed under Related Questions. (MORE)
accept yourself for who you are remember looks are not everything!!!!!! Well if you like a boy you should go for it, dude. I'm a guy and i personally dont care much about weight.
It can be very lazy and mope around. It is good for your hamster to have a belly on him, but not to much. Like us, it can lead to serious health problems.
Twelve stone (168 pounds) definitely seems to be a bit much for a12-year-old child. Please see a doctor for more information.

Yes, even people who are overweight may like chocolate. Your taste in foods does not change because of obesity, although some of the foods you eat may be the cause of obesity.
its realy hard but just be strong and maybe ask them if they want to go jogging or hit the gym that's all you have to do. don't be afraid to that's the biggest thing.
The honest truth is: weight matters more to some people than others. Some people simply will never "like you" if you are overweight; with others the sort of person you are matters more. There's no magic way to "get" someone to like you.
Gonna have to go with yes, Fat chicks need love too. Answer Yes, if they are not shallow people which you don't want to be involved with anyway. There are some guys who prefer women with something other than bones sticking out so you hang in there and the right guy will come along!
It depends on their age, height, and gender. You would have to look for a "children height weight chart" its easy to find an online search engine.
Attractiveness is natures way of saying you are healthy. Attractive features such as large bust, thin, long legs, muscle, etc tells that person can birth a child / protect a family.

Yes, my gf has extra chub around her belly and thighs, and I findit very hot. Especially in a bikini.
Restrict the amount of fast food that your child eats, and make sure they live an active balance in their lifestyle. Encourage them to play sports, and eat healthy. There's more energy from natural substances than junk.
