this is why you're fat dilemma

thisiswhyyourefat is one of these strange and funny web site where anyone can participate and post the most calorific meal one can encounter. In case of diet, a daily visit is highly recommended just to keep away the apetite.

In the same time, Wired magazine got the idea to calculate the Body Mass Index (BMI) -you can calculate yours here- of the Playboy Playmate through the years. They also made a comparison with the evolution of the BMI of the average American women...

The problem ? While Playmates have evolved from 19,4 to 18,2 in forty years, the average American woman from 20 to 29 years old has gone from 22,2 to 26,8 !

The gap between the "ideal" woman (as defined by Playboy magazine) and the reality of the average American women seems to be each time larger and larger !
