Why are Hawaiians Fat?
One of the most beautiful places in the world to visit or even to live in is Hawaii. The islands of Hawaii are majestic and there is always something fun to do. Life just seems so much more simple in Hawaii than in other states across the country and the people who were born and raised there really never seem to be taking life for granted in any way. One of the things that visitors of Hawaii seem to notice about the locals of the island is the fact that a lot of the people seem to be a little bit on the fat side of things. There is actually a pretty simple reason behind this.
When someone is born and raised in the traditional light in Hawaii, they soon realize that the families over there are always going to be big eaters. It is definitely a cultural thing for them and they have a knack for growing and hunting down their own food and making the biggest and best meals that you have ever seen before in your life. There is no worry over there about eating too much or watching your weight. To be big is to be healthy and well off financially. Kind of like royalty.
So, while it might seem like locals of Hawaii are out of shape and a little bit overweight, it is actually a compliment to them and not a slander on how they look or anything like that. I actually really do wish that more and more people would take up this way of looking at things because it seems like we are all way too wrapped up in appearance and image issues these days. The people of Hawaii are doing it the right way and we could all use a little bit of self assurance in our lives.
