  • Hey everyone! You voted so today I'm going to talk about Japanese standards for what's

  • considered skinny or overweight. From the first place, MEDICALLY Japan has different

  • standards for what they consider overweight. Most of the world uses the same BMI, or Body

  • Mass Index, scale. This scale compares your height to your weight and places you in categories

  • of either underweight, normal, overweight, or three different classes of obesity.

  • For most of the world class 1 obesity begins at a BMI of 30. However, in Japan, class 1

  • obesity starts at 25 rather than 30. This is because Asians tend to face more weight-related

  • disease issues at lower BMIs than the rest of the world. For example, at the same BMI

  • as other races, Japanese people face more than twice the risk of type 2 diabetes. They

  • also have higher risks of hypertension and cardiovascular disease, and they also face

  • a risk of dying earlier from those causes. So there's a good reason that Japanese people

  • need to be skinnier than the rest of the world. But let's go ahead and compare average BMIs.

  • I chose to get the data for the 10 countries that watch our channel the most. As you can

  • see, the average Japanese BMI is pretty significantly lower than most other countries. Women alone

  • have an average BMI of 20 and that is pretty freaking skinny, BUT for the vast majority

  • of people that is not going to be anywhere near the size 0 that a lot of foreigners assume

  • is the average in Japan. So this is all statistical data, but what

  • do Japanese people actually think? I actually have a chart that I'm going to show you that

  • someone, somewhere created to rate women on a scale of what they consider skinny and chubby.

  • But of course since that's just one person's opinion, instead of using their standard,

  • I'm going to be translating comments for you by Japanese people so you can see what a lot

  • of different Japanese people think. And since the Japanese viewers on our channel tend to

  • be really polite and respectful when I ask them questions, instead of getting their opinions,

  • I took opinions from other parts of the internet where people were less likely to hold anything

  • back, so of course, some of the comments are really offensive. So I just want to let you

  • guys know ahead of time. Additionally, the chart is full of half naked women in underwear,

  • so it's not safe for work! But let's get started.

  • On this chart, the Japanese says "Pocha do." "Pocchari" means "chubby," and "do" means

  • "degree," so they're measuring the degree of chubiness.

  • I have a crush on 0 - 40.

  • I think I like 80 best.

  • No more than 60%. One of my female friends is like -60 and I'm worried about her!

  • I like 10 or 20! Definitely not -20.

  • 40 and 60 are exactly my type.

  • I'm less than -30. It seems like guys would like 40% the best. She's definitely the cutest.

  • I'm 100...

  • My thighs are 0% but my top is 20-40%...

  • I like 60-100!!

  • I like 80-100%. To me, under 60% are not chubby.

  • I want to be about 10%!

  • I thought the examples of chubby girls would be fatter. To me these would all be categorized

  • as thin.

  • I think I'm about -10.

  • I like 60-80 but 100 isn't bad, either.

  • 40-60 look healthy. I worry about the women under that.

  • I used to be 40, but now when I sit I have a stomach fold. Damnit.

  • My wife is about 140... But her thighs are voluptuous and feel great so I'm happy.

  • I'm good up to 100!! Someone please date me!!

  • I don't find less than 60 attractive.

  • I'm 60. My goal is 0-40.

  • Under 40 are skin and bones. They're not attractive at all. I can't even believe 0.

  • Seeing them makes me think they're living in abject poverty or something.

  • To me 60 is 0 percent chubby. 80 is the best, and 100 is finally kind of chubby.

  • All of them are fine!

  • Where are the chubby women?

  • I thought I liked chubby women but I guess I really like fat women, then.

  • -30 and -20 can't be sexy to me... please eat some meat.

  • -30 and -20 look scary to me even though I'm a woman. Around 60 look great and I'm jealous!

  • 100 is totally fine. It depends on the face, though.

  • 40 is ideal. Under 0 is disgusting.

  • -30-10 look like they were carved to perfection. More than 40 is fat...

  • I'm a woman and I'm jealous of these girls because they're all well-balanced.

  • My chest is 20, my ribs are -20, my stomach is 80, my waist is 0, and my thighs are 10. So how chubby am I?

  • 60 is normal. Chubby starts around 80.

  • Sorry, but I'm not dating those skin and bones girls.

  • Girls magazines make girls go crazy thinking they need to diet, diet, diet all

  • the time. But being plump is good.

  • Before you tell a woman she's too fat or skinny

  • why don't you take off your clothes and stand in front of a mirror first!

  • What?? 40 is chubby??

  • The ones above 40 are definitely fat. 20 is just over the line for being chubby.

  • I like from 60 and above.

  • No less than 60%. Other than 100, the rest aren't chubby at all.

  • I like 60 or 80. 80 is the best.

  • Of course 60 and below are no good. 80 to 100 are my tastes. A little above 100 is perfectly fine, too.

  • None of the girls here are fat. The minus ones are too thin.

  • -10 or 0 are perfect for me.

  • I like the whole bottom row.

  • My level would be from -10 to 60. 60 is chubby but that's okay.

  • 80 to 100 are just fat, aren't they?

  • 0 is perfect.

  • I could go for all of them, but I like the bottom row better.

  • I'm a chubby woman. To me, everyone up to 60 is slim.

  • 80% is normal and 100% is a little chubby. I think a lot of guys would think

  • that 100% is totally normal, and they like girls chubbier than that.

  • 80% should be 0% chubby. Isn't this chart more what women think about themselves?

  • I'd go for -10 to 40. If she was 60 I'd feel like I was having sex with a pig.

  • 60% is fat.

  • I like all of the ones above 10. If there was a 200% I think I'd still like her.

  • If you want to read more comments, all of the comments we translated you can find on

  • our blog. So as you can see, Japanese people have a very wide range of opinions on what

  • they consider to be skinny or chubby, just like anywhere else in the world. There were

  • a number of people who did view people we would think of as skinny as being chubby or

  • even fat, but there were plenty of people who preferred people who were chubbier. So

  • I don't want you guys to get the impression that Japan is a country only for size 0 people,

  • because that is not true. I believe that people of any size can get along in Japan and as

  • I mentioned in my last video, I think it's pretty easy to lose weight in Japan if you

  • go in with the right mindset, so I don't want anyone to feel bad about going to Japan. So

  • anyway, I hope this video was helpful. Thanks for watching, guys!
