This Is the Average American Male’s Body (8 pictures)
Artist Nickolay Lamm created illustrations that compare the body measurements of the average middle-aged man from the United States, Japan, France, and the Netherlands.
The illustrations were produced using the Body Mass Index (BMI), height, and waist measurements of the average middle-aged male from each country. Body Mass Index (BMI) is calculated from a person’s weight and height, and is a good indicator of body fatness.
A normal BMI ranges from 18.5 to 24.9. A BMI of 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight, and anything over 30 is obese, meaning, the average American male over the age of 30 is overweight.
