DH he very Slim, very lean, skinny. Like this all his life. Genetics? fastMetabolism?

Well, this isn't a relationship question. And here is the The Social Spot 'Talk About Whatever' section, so I think it best goes here.

Hello, and Happy weekend to everyone here on TAM. I have a curious question I want to ask.

DH he very Slim/skinny. He 6'1" and weight 170 lbs. His BMI is 22.6 which is a very healthy weight for his 6'1" height, but on the skinny side.. He just slim and very lean. There zero fat anywhere on his body. He been this skinny/slim body type all his life, even when he was a little boy he already this skinny. And as an adult, he remains skinny.
I guess he has fast metabolism? Or perhaps there people who just 'naturally' have a slim body type regardless what they eat. Maybe it 'genetic'?

He eats normal. He eats all the Chinese/Vietnamese food I cook him, and he remain the same skinny/slim weight. Perhaps it due to his fast metabolism?
Don't get me wrong, I'm attracted to his skinny/slim weight. I admit I'm sexually attracted to him being tall and slim.

He skinny like Abraham Lincoln, or Obama. He 6'1" like Obama but he weight like 15 lbs skinner, lol. And anyone who skinner than Obama is darn skinny, lol.
But he has very good health. He never hospitalized a day in his life. He just never get sick, at all. not even a common cold.. He never get a flu shot, and never once he come down with the flu. Met him when he was 25, he 31 now and I never see him get sick, not even a cold or cough.
All his health checkups everything is Normal. Doctor said my husband has very good health (perhaps it genetic again?).

So I guess genetic and fast metabolism?

Aren't you very slim as well?

It's his metabolism and good eating habits. He's young. As he ages, he metabolism will slow down and it will probably be harder for him to eat the same and maintain his body weight.

What was his father's weight like? How about his mother?

Here is a decent article on this...

>> Why Do Some People Have a Fast Metabolism - Early To Rise

It talks about what Metabolism is, symptoms of a fast metabolism, what causes it, the disadvantages and if/ how we can slow it down..

Wait till he gets a little older, then you'll see a change. I used to be like that, skinnier than a rail and could quite literally eat whatever whenever I wanted and not gain a pound. Then I turned 50 and everything changed. Gained 20 pounds all of the sudden and can't get rid of it no matter what I do. I eat less than half what I used to eat and still gain weight no matter how much exercise I do. I sucks getting old.

Re: DH he very Slim, very lean, skinny. Like this all his life. Genetics? fastMetabol

When I got married at the age of 20, I was 114 lbs. Skinny my whole life. When I played football my coach told me to wear a few sweat shirts under my uniform. They listed my weight as 130 lbs. in the programs. My wife was 79 lbs. and 4' 11" tall. When people came to our door they would ask for our parents. When clients came to my office they would ask for my father. I was refused bar service when celebrating my 21st birthday when the drinking age at the time was 18. Got a free all expenses paid weekend when I wrote to the hotel the next day.

Our doctor was always trying to get my wife to eat. She was all skin and bones with 32A breasts. I was the same but at 6' tall. We looked like teenagers. I did not start to gain weight until I hit my 50's. I ate junk and still did not gain weight and neither did my wife. By the time I was 58, I was overweight. All of a sudden, even without eating any junk food, I gained weight. It has been a struggle ever since. My wife finally ballooned up to 100 lbs and most of that weight went into her breasts. She is now a tiny woman with 36C breast. Wish she had them earlier in life.

I followed the path that my father did. He was slim but not as tall as me. I towered over my parents by the time I was 17. My dad did not gain weight until he was in his early 60's. So it could be genetic or metabolism. I was a Jock in high school and then joined the Army. I was active in sports well into my late 40's. As long as your husband is healthy is all that matters. I have a tall lanky friend like your husband. He is very thin and in his 70's. He just does not gain weight no matter what he eats.

Many prefer to drown in a pool of their own morality rather than seek the safety of a different morality.
