    Default Spin off : what does obese look like?

    Ok let's have a test.

    On the below scale, can you identify which women on the scale are of normal weight, overweight and obese?

    Attachment 74392

    This test has been used to show evidence that people don't notice obese anymore as they have become to accustomed to it.

    I'll give the answer later tonight

    To me, 1-2 are underweight, 3-4 normal, 5 overweight and from 6 obese.

    I'm not confident in my answer but I would have called 3 & 4 normal weight, 5 overweight and 6 + obese. 1 & 2 appear underweight to me. I think it's important to remember weight issues exist at both ends of the scale.

    Oooh thats tricky! I would say:
    1 - underweight
    2 & 3 - healthy weight
    4 & 5 - overweight
    6 & 7 - obese
    8 & 9 - morbidly obese.

    4 I could go either way - healthy or overweight.

    How tall are they?

    Edit: a 6 foot tall and a 4 foot person would be different on this scale

    I agree with this.

    ETA: I think I would be a 2, and I know I am not underweight.

    Just focus on size of belly/legs/arms and don't over think it 😉
