argentine people are the worlds most stylish and beautiful people

Yeah, designer sunglasses, tight leather pants, dark tan, and a bumper tied with coat hanger, the car trunk with rope, missing mirrors, no muffler so cover your ears, and watch out for the dog poop as you elegantly traverse the broken sidewalks through black clouds wafting in the street. booom, roar, BOOM, clunk, clank!

This thread is very amusing - many a true word is said in jest.
I have to say that, despite what the WHO thinks, I do not think that obesity is an illness. If one lobbies hard enough, almost anything could be classified as an illness. There are very few documented cases of people who *have to* eat that much and so badly - I recall one instance of a chap with some brain disorder which meant he *thought* that he was always hungry. Is it really an illness to want to eat in McDonalds or have ice cream or fatty foods all the time? Is it really an illness oto be lazy? Would one, in isolation and without temptation, have this illness? If you don't want to be super fat, don't eat all that junk food - you can eat large quantities of the right foods and exercise regularly.
I know that it is the season of goodwill and all that, but in my experience, most obese people are just super lazy. Get off your asses and do some exercise - change your life, nobody else will. Is smoking, something also bad for your health, an illness too? I regularly spend time in the park in Palermo and am always amazed to see seventy year old portenos walking and running around the track - even at 7am in the morning. Body image and health actually means something to them.
I'm not saying that people should be zero fat - far from it - but there is nothing worse than grossly overweight people. They disgust me. It really is more of a European and North American thing - walk down Calle Floriday any afternoon of the week and you can tell European or North American girls (all of them) from a mile off - they will invariably have more fat on their faces than Argentine girls in the entirety of their bodies. Sad, but true.

HA! if you call tacky old lady clothes and pre 30s women all dressed like Ashley Simpson stylish.. i cant help you're taste.. but i will say they are all clean and "nicely dressed" but not stylish.. maybe trendy.. maybe some classy.. but style, no. Almost every store carries the same clothes and styles, all dated.

bf4,
We Argentines are not vegetarian at all, even when compared to Americans...
As a matter of fact, we are famous for our meat-based diet. We eat more meat than any other country.
"Argentinians eat more beef than anyone else, about 140 pounds a year per person. (The U.S. average is about half that)." http://www.foodreference.com/html/vol-7-no-11.html

See? You're completely out of touch with reality.
Get informed. It might take a little effort, but it's worth it...

Once in Tampa, Florida I saw something extremely funny or maybe even sad.
A young lady of vast proportions had just finished the biggest pile of burgers and fries I had ever seen and when the waiter brought her dessert, which consisted of a huge ice cream sundae topped with chocolate and fruit sauce, he asked her if she wanted coffee with that. Her reply was 'yeah, but make sure its decaf and seetner, not sugar;you hear boy?'
I almost fell off my chair...

I have seen several all-you-can-eat vegetarian restaurants here. What an interesting concept :) I guess that just means that not all vegetarians are on a diet.

Perhaps he refers to all the added animal fat to products such as french fries, sweets, etc ? If so, I would agree with bf4 regarding us being almost vegetarian in comparison.V

Staygolden....nicely said. I don't think I could have put it as gently or as diplomatically.

"Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder" but as an Argentine woman, it distresses me to see so much fat being displayed by wearing such ill-suited bathing suits. Yet, when vacationing in European beaches, I have seem similar displays. Brazilian beaches are an improvement in looks and styles.
This character, Tanghetto, is so off the beam, I don't think anyone should be paying any attention to what he posts.

In general argentine people are well dressed attractive people and I have to commend the personal hygiene of portenos but on the other side there are a lot of very plastic looking people who are the opposite of real style and grace,. Watch the television here and you will see some very strange sights certainly not a recommendation to cosmetic surgery and fine manners.
The reasons you dont see many fat people on the streets of recoleta and the wealthier suburbs is that socially they are made to feel uncomfortable much more so than most societies on earth.
Anorexia and that very sunburnt look is also more common here and I beleive Argentine is first or second in world for anorexia.

I think that many countries, at different scales, are going global. Imho going global is almost a course word, were everything gets leveled everywhere ( at least that is the intention ) I started noticing that this global disease started spreading in this country in the early 90´s. The ( junk ) food chains, the supermarkets, the clothes brands, the same hair, same body, same lack of grace that you will inevitably find in other large cities around the globe. I remember when people would only wear jeans to go to a park or an asado, same thing with snickers... Guys would proudly wear a suit to go to casinos, etc, etc.
