Fat or woman?

Post by pankaaj » Thu Aug 10, 2006 2:58 pm

What we observe in real life is that women eat less as compared to men; but work wise both are same energy consuming.
If we see this by evolution point of view it gives some ans but still are there any other points?

Maybe you can rephrase your question? Your point is not very clear. The fact that women eat less but have the same energy efficiency gives answer to what?

That you can be either fat or a woman? Then if your fat and have a XX genotype what are you? Nothing worse considering? Same for the Thin XY humans? Or can I change sex, by losing weight (I will be careful with exercising now...)?
