    Haven’t been in NL, but dutch tourist girls tend to store a good amount of fat on their thighs with wider hips, that make them appear endo while still being tallest - which is a female hormonal thing as well as males having less fat and more upper body muscle.

    Always been meso and it's really easy for me to put on/lose mass. Always been a higher muscle comp than other women, even before I was a powerlifter. Trained like I had majority slow-twitch, and it turns out I do! Easy to gain strength too and my stats were competitive for the ladies in my weight-class. Ty mom ty dad

    My explanation about the boy and girl fat thing is that, just like in Denmark, the Netherlands have quite liberated woman so in a student town in which I life woman drink also beer etc. And woman gain more easy fat when they have the same lifestyle as man.

    But may be there is a better explanation (because within the Swedes this seems not the case).

    The liberal fat Lady it is mostly connected with british tourist here thought. The women from Netherlands and Scandinavia have the macho-manly stereotype of being tall and in Some way very athletic. I Have seen Swedish women with muscles bigger than mines xD. I think Germanics besides their liberated life-style have good genes and if I am not mistaken you do 3 meals they Day. In Greece people eating all Day and there is Not a Specific time for dinner...lol!!!

    From my trips in Netherlands I can say that fat people are actually rare to see. As I mention above it was mostly youngers and more Specific young girls. That is not the case in UK.

    I wouldn't take those numbers literally though, because being "obese" by the BMI alone can mean quite different things. For males it can also mean they are "heavily build" with just some extra fat, if at all, whereas for the female part being truly in the obese segment by BMI almost always means a heavy fat excess. There are also ethnic differences like the lean BMI for South Asians is different, but to sum it up for Europeans, something like 25 percent female "obesity" based on BMI alone means much more than the exact same number for males. So if its 30:25 its probably equal, if its 25:25 females are already severely more obese in numbers.

    For all these characteristics such has height, body structure, body fat, I believe there is always a reason to look at in the environment.

    I noticed than in most countries over the globe, young people tend to get taller and slimmer over time, there are little exceptions really.

    Natural selection is also influenced by environnement I believe. In the past, women were more naturally attracted by strong men because these men had to protect their family. Nowadays, it's much less the case because there is less need to protect your own family that way anymore, because we have laws for this.

    Body fat was also rather an advantage in term of evolution, people with that characteristic were able to survive longer starving, but this is not really the case anymore, now you just go to the supermarket for this.

    Its not only due to nutrition. Greeks are generally tending to become fat. I think it is a genetical thing, too, perhaps even in the first place. Slim people above 45 are truly rare in Greece
