Resolved Question

Why is it that young girls all seem to have a "tummy" these days?

Just look around and then compare to photos 10 or 15 years ago of girls of the same age. More and more girls seem to have a poochy tummy hanging over their jeans - one would swear they have already had a baby. What happened to all the flat tummies.? Now i'm not saying these girls are fat at all- you even see it on the really skinny ones - It's just the tummy. Do you think its as a result of the quality of food we are getting or do you think teenagers lead a more Sedentary lifestyle than before?

I know. Usually it was the guys with the boeps and the girls were all skinny. Now the guys are almost annorexic skinny and the girls have these extra tyre around the mid section. Don't they care anymore how they look? Mom and Dad work, healthy lunch is in the fridge just ready to reheat, but no, they rather go to McDonalds or make a sarmie with all the wrong stuff on. Or rather go for the packet of crisps in the cupboard and lots of soda drinks that's terrible.

Do some research, a little bit of a tummy is how a normal girl is supposed to look.

I agree, some have nicely toned bodies, but most look very flabby and cushy. Suppose we can't say what the cause is if we don't not know what their lifestyles are like?

Combination of crap food and insufficient exercise. Too easy to sit in front of the computer / TV these days.

I think it is lifestyle and the kind of food we eat. The way our food is produced may have an impact. I once read that eating chicken wings can cause ovarian cysts on females because of the growing injections given on the wings of the chickens, what else?

Maybe they are just wearing clothes that are too small. Yes I have also noticed that, lack of exercise and diet.

15 years ago low cut jeans were not so much in fashion and parents did not allow their kids to wear them so much.

Lazy, junk food and lack of exercise. Rather sit on front of TV and do nothing.

My daughters always played sport after school but it seems that has now gone by the wayside. I think it could be that they do not do enough exercise and eat incorrectly. Most of the time you will find them either in front of the T.V. or computer playing games.

You know considering the fact that so many girls from such a young age become weight obsessed, it doesn't seem to help much? Although being that young and permanently on a diet whatever causes havoc while they're still growing, and they think that not eating is going to help them lose. But I think that they should dress according to their weight, not according to what's "cool".

Fatty food,Eating late at night and Over Eating.Teenagers don't like to eat vegies and fruits they rather get themselves fries.The other thing is wearing wrong size of clothes, they seem to prefer tigths clothes than their normal size and that shows out the 'tummy'.I heard that alcohol also contribute to having a tummy
