Asian-American? You may be fatter than you think.
We can't fight it. The bar keeps getting lower and lower.
Turns out that Asian Americans should aim for a BMI of 23, not 25. The explanation? Asian Americans are “fatter” at a lower BMI than Caucasian Americans. This translates to an increased risk of diabetes and other health problems at lower weights.
So we're all fat.
