    British girls can expect shorter lives than continental cousins

    “Whereas a Spanish girl born between 2006 and 2010 can expect to live to 85 – they will be the longest lived in Europe according to the forecasts – those in Britain will die almost two-and-a-half years sooner.”

    Lucky my wife is Spanish!

    In Barcelona the nenas age well and all seem to live 90+ 😉

    Fiery temper comes with the territory, I’m afraid. I call them unprovoked outbursts.

    Looking back at this thread I think the photo of that (supposedly) british woman slightly derogatory. Taken a look at a Spanish beach recently 🙄 Fat kids too! There are grossly fat people in most countries and no shortage in Spain..plenty of beer bellied men too 😯

    I guess you can say that there are fat and slim people in all parts of the world.

    From experience I can say that most of the spanish side of the family were pretty slim up till they got married and then ‘boom’ a lifetime of wearing an apron and endlessly cooking (and restocking the fridge because all the men in the family constantly pick at anything nice kept there!) means that they are on the stocky side. All those stews and fatty meat. The diet in Andalucia is pretty dire if you really look at it. Piles of chorizo and fatty food. Yes they might eat a bit of fish and the odd salad on the table as part of their meal but it’s not really low fat.

    From the picture used you could say it’s the social aspect. Is that lady overweight because she only eats cheap food, ie: chips, processed meat etc. Someone with more money to spend might pay more attention to buying healthier foods.

    Very wealthy women are normally pretty slim from whatever country they come from 😉
