Women try guessing each other’s weight | A social experiment

By | Health & Fitness

This video isn't like anything I have EVER done before, and it all started with a few questions I had.

Why do we allow our weight to control our feelings?
Why do we give the scale so much power?
What does BMI really mean?
Is body fat percentage actually a better indicator of health?

I decided to gather a bunch of women together to run a “little” social experiment to find out how all of these things – BMI, weight, body fat percentage – actually looked like on a woman. And I wanted to see if we could tell which was most accurate.

I started planning this video a year ago, and I had NO IDEA how to pull it off. Fast forward to shoot day and we had a 20+ person crew working on it AND we flew out one of the world's best female bodybuilders…from Sweden!!!! So crazy!!!!!!

Parts of this video were extremely uncomfortable to film, but I hope you guys take away the fact that there is so much more to a person than their number.

I have so many people to thank for making this video happen – my amazing director Ryan, my husband Sam, the crew, the Blogifam…but most of all I want to thank all of the brave, strong women for speaking their truths. You all are amazing!

  • Sha Ne says:

    At first I thought this was a video from Cut/ Jubilee. I enjoyed this though, it was new and refreshing.

  • purdybby none says:

    Ppl are always surprised how much I weigh I don’t look like my weight

  • Sophie mills says:

    Irene should watch game changers! Chicken doesn’t help bodybuilding and general exercise

  • Kid Thompson says:

    I relate to this so much, I judge my body compared to what I want to look like. As Korean American I look at Blackpink and Twice and think why am I not that body type, but then I look at my frens who are even farther from what my “ideal” for myself I’d and I just see how ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL THEY ARE, and I wonder why do I judge myself so much. I dream of a world where every body type is TRULY 100% CELEBRATED as BEAUTIFUL. 💜💜💜

  • Annalise Greenaway says:

    This reminds me soooooo much of “Cut” 💀💀💀💀

  • Sarah Harney says:

    The music is a little loud and hard to hear their answers to the questions.

  • can we get 5000 subscribers with no videos? says:

    do y’all think you weigh the same WTF

  • Rachel M says:

    This video was uncomfortable to watch and I wasn’t even there, so much respect to them for being able to talk about the topics that are definitely not easy to discuss 💓

  • Sha Ne says:

    Ngl I was uncomfortable throughout most of the video especially when they started placing the labels and numbers. It made me feel less of what I am worth because of how I weigh.
