With the avg. weight of an American woman being 170 LBS. that is far too fat for me. I remember being a kid in the 60's/70's when it was 150 for a man.

I'm about 5'10" and 175 and the avg woman almost weighs as much as me?

Too much welfare, comfort food, stress etc..

That and all the additives and hormones in the food

one thing I didn't see was the height to weight.....true 170 for a female sounds high but if she's 6'2"

It never ceases to amaze me how people in the U.S. want to blame everything else for being fat but their caloric intake and lack of exercise.

Why do you think it's called a "Pie Hole"?
Open hole, insert pie!
Repeat.

So a woman is avg height at 5'4" and 170 Lbs. That's a porker, sorry if this applies to any of you.

I feel bad. I have been throwing off the averages for all you skinny people and making you appear fat to the rest of the world. I would be happy at 195lb though. It's Obamas fault!
