    Default Does the average white American have a predisposition to obesity due to Alpine admixture?

    The average white American is a Subnordid/Alpine with a southern German/French look, even if there are many Brnns and North Atlantids in there. Especially in the Midwest, where most people are of German descent, you'll notice a correlation between the Alpine white American and obesity; I think obesity peaks around there alongside with the southeastern parts of USA. I've noticed that most "fat" White Americans (especially the ones belonging to the under class/middle class) also (in generally) have the Alpine phenotype. Now, could there be a correlation to being a part of the Alpine race and being prone to obesity, knowing that the Alpine race is known to store a lot of fat, or is it just due to socioeconomic factors that white Americans "appear" fat?

    Brnn and Borreby rather. There's probably some Alpinid too, but certainly not mainly. WASPs look clearly Northern, for the most part.

    Obesity isn't that common though and it's usually poor people of all phenotypes. Most kids grow out of their fat. Obesity is higher among African Americans and Hispanics usually.

    Those percentages are of those surveyed not the total population.

    https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/products/databriefs/db360.htm

    "Among adults, the prevalence of both obesity and severe obesity was highest in non-Hispanic black adults compared with other race and Hispanic-origin groups."

    regarding Americans its absolutley ONLY diet and maybe secondary less activitiy, but its MAINLY diet, really.
    Look at Okinawa- pre WW2 they were the poorest Japanese prefecture , but also the healthiest because of calorie restricted, healthy diet. Since US fast food came there, they have problems with diabetes and other health related diseases concerning diet.
    Swiss and Tyrol have a high nucleus of Alpine phenotypes (and Norics/Dinarids), but they are propably fitter than East Austria, simply because they are way more active people ( the origin of mountaineering lies there- including East France- for a reason).

    They have predisposition because of the consumed 5000 caloric intake per day beside their sitting jobs lol

    Not in the South. Whites are mostly British Isles descent.

    Does the average white American have a predisposition to obesity due to Anglo-Saxon admixture?

    Okay, but they look more like Alpines in the South than the "other" typical British isles phenotypes, other than Brnn and North Atlantid, as I said.

    Well, not really. Have you spent much time here?
