How many of us Chowhounds are fat? [Moved from General Topics]

I know that I am too fat because I love to eat things that taste really good.

I don't stuff my face with anything I can get my hands on, indeed I usually won't eat if the food's no good. But, (and this is the crucial "but") I do eat with gusto when the chow is good. And Chowhound doesn't exactly hamper me when it comes to finding good food. Like that uni risotto last night.

Just curious, are we a fat bunch?

  1. Interesting question.. heh.

    I eat and drink whatever I want, and it is a lot; probably enjoy my wine a little -too- much as well. I'm female, 5'9", 130 pounds.. apparently that is around normal. However, I was 110 before my food obsession began, so that might say something.. :)

      Hey! same here! 5'9" 130lb! But I've been like this before I became a chowhound.

    2. I'm six feet tall and weight 200 pounds. And I eat whenever and whatever I like.

          I didn't say or mean to imply that it is.

            That's cool. I didn't know. Some folks get all me.

            I'm six feet and 200 and I'm always complaining of my weight...

        2. My BMI is around 27, so officially I'm "overweight," but I work out regularly so have more muscle than average.

          1. 5'11" here, 230 yeah baby, I'm fat!
