Conversation with other woman trailer,nice words to attract a woman 2014,how to send text message instead of imessage - Plans On 2016

For example, a couple weeks ago a study published by the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine caused a minor uproar when the results of their findings showed young black girls’ bodies didn’t respond to physical activity the same way as young white girls. Although part of me awaits the inevitable study showing all studies are flawed, for argument’s sake, let’s assume the findings of this particular study are accurate. For example, at an average height for women of 5’5 the BMI chart finds women overweight at 150lbs. Furthermore, we must consider the fact that Blacks only represent 13% of the population of this overweight country we proudly inhabit. I am merely suggesting the nation collectively throws its overweight bodies in front of the bus the media insist we throw African American women under.
When the news lazily champions a singular (and arguably flawed) system of measurement, the Body Mass Index, and selectively reports statistics under the guise of objective reporting, it breeds mistrust of those allegedly trying to help.
However, I don’t agree a simple ratio of weight to height is the best or even the most honest measurement of health and fitness.


At 72%, whites represent five times that amount. If 80% of black women and 60% of non-Hispanic white women are overweight or obese, there are almost four times as many overweight white women walking around (approximately 60 million compared to 15 million).
Instead of focusing on headlines that engineer page views, maybe they should focus on delivering information that will actually help the health and fitness of the African American community. In my opinion, it’s misleading to lump all women into these related yet vastly different categories without proper context, especially since we have no real information on the health of these women beyond their weight and height.
This doesn’t remove the accountability for a healthy lifestyle from African American women; however, it does paint a more accurate picture than the news headlines from last week, which focused on drawing in page views and ad revenue. Is the Body Mass Index the most reliable means of measuring health and is it a measurement you personally use? BMI, an arguably flawed measurement itself, is widely accepted as a cursory gauge of health and fitness by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Obesity on the other hand, is arbitrarily defined as a BMI of 30 or above, because someone somewhere decided that is when you are definitely fat.


Accounting for my personal experience with any number of proportionately shaped 5’5 150lb women, I didn’t consider any of them overweight – and in fact, I went out of my way to be in their allegedly overweight presence.
Either way, the discussion doesn’t do much for encouraging the public, in this case African American women, to live a lifestyle focused on overall health instead of narrowly obsessing over weight. For context: with an obesity rate in the total population of almost 30%, America is the fattest nation in the world. In your opinion, based on the BMI measurements highlighted above, would women who fall in the ‘overweight’ category be considered any less desirable by the men of your culture?
