I was too generous with 35. The oldest Filipina I have met that still looked good was 29, and I was astonished. I say after 25, about 98% of the girls have lost whatever good looks they had due to youth.
Typically, Filipinos do not eat a good diet, even when they can afford it. In the last decade or so, it seems that finally some are catching on about diet and healthy diet choices are becoming more common. I would say that in the States, the typical deal seems to be that by age 30, most women are overweight and on their way to that "Cut their hair and gain 50 lbs" destiny.

So the question is, can they be broken of the bad diet and habits? Can't do anything about genes, but a great diet combined with exercise would cure a lot of this. Somehow though, it's hard to see them giving up the soda pop.

The only things I see people drink here is either alcohol or pop, and I drink neither. They sell lots of juice at supermarkets but I rarely see people buying it. The food people eat in the Philippines is bad enough, but they make it worse by washing it down with sugarwater and/or alcohol. I highly doubt they teach basic nutrition in school unless you specialize in it in college. Even then, good luck changing Filipino diets. Filipinos are so set in their ways that changing whatever bad habits they have would be an almost impossible task.

Most Filipinos have terrible dietary habits. There are some groups that are much more aware, but typically, foreign men will not meet them. There are well educated, from "professional" families and they are simply more aware of the health issues beyond mere survival. Some of the dive instructors are in this catagory.
Another small group tends to have pretty healthy habits by default. Some of the poor rural farm families cannot afford pop or much tobaco and their foods tend to be just the lical produce. They may not even afford that regular white rice and be forced to eat unpolished "peasant" rice, which is much better in reality. Most of the food our caretaker family eats is off the property. They are paid pretty well but their personal food is free for them off the property, which leaves their cash for other things. We have over 20 kinds of tropical fruit, rice and fish. Few Americans eat a diet as healthy.
If you marry a girl from a more informed family, you will be far better off. After all, you only need one.

Isn't that true for most women though? I have been e-stalking some of the women I used to know from many years ago, both the ones who were good to me and the ones who were not so good to me. I am amazed when I see their photos, and it just makes me think that it is a good thing that things did not work out with them. It seems it is rather rare for a woman to look hot at age 35. Even 30 is pushing it, but there are some hot 30 year old women, but by the time you get to age 35 and 40, most women simply will not look that hot anymore.

...
I would argue that most Chinese, Japanese, and Korean women still look damn good when they are 35, and don't start to seriously decline until their late 40s early 50s.

It's lifestyle. I think even here in America if they improve their diet and lifestyle they would are gracefully.

Half of the way you look is due to lifesyyle.

If Filipinas knew that if they stopped eating all the garbage food they do and drinking all the pop they would be slim, healthy and attractive, do you think they have the will power to do it? Or would they just not care and keep on with their old bad habits? My guess is most would just say, who cares, I prefer to eat fast food than look and feel better.

Stopping eating junk food would require the same level of discipline and intelligence that would lead them to think better, study harder, be more confident and successful women and...shun us foreigners for the usual locals :-)

We can't have a cake and eat it!

I am posting here from the USA, the home of the land whales. A walk around a shopping mall in the USA and you see about half the young women are overweight, with about one in four being a regular whale.

A quick stroll in a Makati or BGC mall, to be honest, and the reality sets in that only maybe 20% of the women are patently slim or in shape, regardless of age, face and skin quality.

Filipino food tends to be fattening and greasy and a Filipino everyday's diet is carb bonanza. However veggies and fruit here do tend to be fresh and delicious. It's a mystery to me why salads and steamed vegetables do not become a staple dish like rice and chicken/pork adobo are.

Oh well, the consolation prize: from what they told me, Malaysians and Indonesians aren't that much better off.

Healthy eating must be something taught at school from an early age. Only Japan and South Korea have been successful in this.

As I mentioned in another thread, Korean and Japanese ESL students that go to Vancouver, Canada usually end up living with local homestay families booked through their agency. They assume they will be living with a local Canadian family and eating western food. They are always disappointed when they come all the way from Asia, only to get stuck with a Filipino immigrant family that serves them the typical Pinoy "diet", and the poor students are horrified at the unhealthy food and move out after only a month or two. They always give some other excuse for leaving so fast, but it doesn't matter, because the Filipino family will always have more victims assigned by the students' agency. The Filipino family is hungry for room and board income, while the boarders are not hungry for the Filipino food, and I don't blame them. About 3/4 of the students I met at the ESL conversation school in Vancouver told me a version of this same story. I tell them I live in the Philippines sometimes and avoid the local food there also, so we usually have a good laugh about it.
