Sexual dimorphism in fat distribution is thought to emerge during puberty. Truncal or android body fat distribution is characteristic of adult males but is also recognized as a human cardiovascular risk factor. Race differences in truncal fat are clearly evident in adults and have been described in prepubertal children but not between Asians and other race groups. The aim of this study in African-American, Asian, and Caucasian prepubertal children was to evaluate sex differences and race differences in body fat distribution. Analysis of covariance was used to explore fat distribution in prepubertal children girls and boys; Asians, 95 African-Americans, and Caucasians , measured by skinfold thickness and dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry DXA in a cross-sectional study. Extremity and gynoid fat masses were evaluated after adjustment for trunk or android fat, respectively, and for covariates including age, weight, height, and interactions.

When I told a male Caucasian friend I was writing about how fat I am, he laughed. This photo slideshow reveals exactly what pop culture seems to think about Asian women and our bodies. We all have tiny size-two waists, slender legs, and perfectly straight hair. And when we sweat, we still look sexy. Although every woman is subjected to these same stupid standards of impossibly skinny waists, busty boobs, and twig-type arms, in Asian American culture, losing weight and being skinny is tantamount to getting good grades.
Body Fat Percentage is the proportion of fat to the total body weight. Body fat is essential for maintaining body temperature, cushioning joints and protecting internal organs. Too much fat can damage your long-term health. Reducing excess levels of body fat has been shown to directly reduce the risk of certain conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and certain cancers.
