Women try guessing each other’s weight | A social experiment
– Hey guys, Cassey here. So, today I gathered eight women together for a little social experiment. None of them have any idea
what’s about to happen. All they know is that
it’s gonna be a video, about body image, but that’s about it. They don’t know that it’s about to get
a little uncomfortable. How are you guys feeling? – Excited
– Excited. – Nervous.
– Kinda nervous. – [Cassey] What do you
think we’re gonna do today? – Maybe share our
– [Cassey] How often do
you guys catch yourself comparing yourself to other women? – Very. – A lot of times. – I think it’s tough now
with all the internet. – [Cassey] Do you guys ever judge people based on how they look? And do you ever get judged
based on how you look? – I had a relationship where my partner used to like to pinch my stomach and compare his body fat to mine. – I get this every day (laughs). Not okay to be a woman
and have a lot of muscles. I can walk in the city and
people come and look at me like, “wow! Are you a girl or a guy?” – I get told you’re like too skinny or you’re not skinny enough.
– I’m trying out this new yoga studio, and this slender
woman looks up and down at me when I work out like I didn’t belong. – [Cassey] So this is the part that might be a little bit uncomfortable. I want you guys to choose a partner that you think weighs the same as you. Okay? And you can’t ask each other
how much you weigh, okay? Once you figure that out, I want you to line up by
weight, lowest to highest. (loud murmuring) (all laughing) – This is gnarly. (all laughing) – I’m pretty short. – Does a weight partner exist? – [Cassey] Yes. A weight partner does exist. – A weight partner exists. (all laughing) – I feel weird, ’cause I don’t like sizing people up.
– I think we could be. – I think we could be.
– I think we could be. – Yeah. – Okay, cool. – [Cassey] Now we’re gonna ask you guys, why you chose each other. – Looking at my partner, (laughs) we kinda have like similar body type. – The body style. – Yeah, like style. – I think we’re both pretty curvy, we have more weight, like
down in our lower body area. – Yeah, I was initially
drawn to my partner ’cause we’re both the same height, so I was like, okay. – Yeah, I was like definitely. – Kind of worked my way down. – I think I chose her ’cause she’s tall. – Yeah, I think we were
kind of trying to like, play up a balancing game. Like maybe our bodies don’t
look the same necessarily, but, you know, the height
might also play a factor. It- More like a toned body and muscle weighs a bit more than fat. – And almost like similar height.
I feel like your shoes have a bit of lift. (both laughing) – [Cassey] How did it
feel to judge someone by how much they weigh
without even knowing them? – Yeah, I did feel a little uncomfortable. – Like I don’t want to do that to others. – Felt awkward too though. – Yeah, like I felt uncomfortable because I was like, I
was sizing people up, like I’m like, well, I think
I weigh way more than you, but not more than you and
like it just felt like…
Even if we like it, I think
that we do that in life but it felt really weird
to like being given a task and having to do it. – [Cassey] Are you ready
to hear the results? None of you are right. (all shouting and laughing) Okay, are you ready to hear
your correct weight partners? – Yeah.
– Yes. – [Cassey] First, we have Covi and Paloma. (both laughing) We have Rachel and Binay. Next, we have Celeste and Ebony. And finally, we have Irene and Darlyn. – Amazing, so cool. – [Cassie] How do you guys feel? – My suspicions were right. (all laughing) – I think it’s cool. – Yeah. – Yeah, ’cause everybody like
defines by like the scale, but you can look so different even though the number might be the same. – [Cassey] Are you guys surprised that you’re the same weight? – A little bit.
– A little bit. – I had suspicions. You can see her
muscular definition. – I was thinking I was heavier than her, just ’cause of the like, a little bit the muscle showing more. Usually, I’m a little bit
on the heavier side of lean.
– Yeah, a little. – I think just height-wise, I’m just like? Like looking up (laughs). – Yeah. – Yes (laughs). – Honestly, I wasn’t. – [Cassey] So now I just
want to get an idea of like, what’s your typical diet? – I usually like cereal for breakfast and always with a cup of coffee. – Usually for breakfast, I’ll eat a bagel
with cream cheese, avocado, and lemon pepper on top.
– Food is always a tricky thing because I go in cycles. I also took the meat out for like three years, dealing with cancer, and put it back in. – My typical diet is what’s on sale, it sprouts usually (laughs). And then I usually eat ice
cream a couple of times a week too. – So I try to have carby meals
in the front part of my day and then incorporate veggies for dinner. – I don’t have any particular
plan that I follow. I do eat breakfast every single day, my stomach will growl if I don’t eat. I cook a lot at home, so
I meal prep every Sunday. I have a huge sweet tooth, but typically I try to eat healthier. – Honestly, my diet is
all over the place (laughs). My diet consists of
bread and sugar (laughs). – It’s probably quite boring (laughs). Protein, protein, protein (laughs). I eat more or less chicken
like four or five times a day.
I put my carbs in the morning and some carbs right before my training. – [Cassey] How often do you
work out and like what do you? – I try to work out five
to six days of the week, like 45 minutes of strength training, and then the last like 20
to 30 minutes of cardio. – I haven’t been to the
gym in like a month or two, it’s just life is crazy. So I haven’t been able to go.
– I work out a lot,
almost every single day, sometimes twice a day with yoga, and then I do like my weights. – I’m seven days a week as well. I usually start
with some weightlifting and then I’ll… And marathon training too. So I’ll do like, three
miles to however long, I have a long run day on the weekend. – I would say at least three days. But I try to shoot for every
day just some sort of activity and that’s kind of my goal. – Typically, about three times a week. I go through phases for exercises like, sometimes it’ll be dance,
sometimes it’ll be yoga, sometimes it’ll be pilates. – Typically, I don’t go to the gym. When I do go to the gym,
I try to do some cardio. – I train a lot. More or less every day. So off-season, I go to the
gym for weight training, four or five days a week. Don’t do so much cardio at
the gym off-season period, I save it for the on-season. But I have a dog, so I
do a lot of long walking.
– [Cassey] All right, now
Laurel’s gonna step in and we are gonna do some reveals. We’re gonna reveal your BMI and then we’re gonna reveal your body fat. All right, one, two, three. So that’s your BMI, which is a relationship between
your height and your weight, based on like these industry standards. Covi, it says 22 is like
in the healthy range, and then for Paloma, it says
24.5 is in the healthy like almost overweight rate. What do you think of that? What do you think about BMI? – I don’t like it
and never really use it ’cause it doesn’t like
include body fat percentage, which is something I
gravitate more towards.
(both exclaiming) – [Cassey] 20.5 says
you’re in the healthy range and then Rachel says, you are
also in the healthy range. – Arbitrary number. It doesn’t make sense to me. – With physical therapy as my background, we don’t use the BMI
scale as much anymore. – [Cassey] For Ebony and
for Celeste, both of you, it puts you in the overweight category. So how do you guys feel about that? – Not great. – Yeah, I feel guilty, I guess. That’s the word I’m centering on. – [Cassey] For both Irene and Darlyn, it says both of you guys are
in the category of obese, I’m gonna put that in quotes.
And I wanna know what you think about that and what that word means to you. – Yeah, I’ve been through
this a lot of times (laughs). When you have a lot of muscle, this doesn’t work at all. – I mean, I don’t
consider myself obese. I mean, I know I’m not healthy. – Yeah, no, it makes no sense.
I think it’s a– – Yeah, ’cause we’re
like five numbers away. – Yeah. (both laughing) – [Cassey] Now, we’re gonna flip one more, you’ll see your body fat. Ready and flip. – Oh wow! – Okay. – [Cassey] So according to Ace Fitness, both of you are in the fitness category for body fat percentage. – It’s pretty cool (laughs). – That surprises me. (Binay shouts) – Really?
– Yeah. – Sorry, well.
(both laughing) – Mine’s higher. – Yeah, I think I’m just surprised I’m not as toned as Binay. This is to show you never know. – Crazy. – [Cassey] Okay, you guys
are both in the athlete realm for body fat for women. – I like that (laughs). – Okay, that’s the good part. Yeah, interesting with
all these classifications. – Yeah. – It’s like, you feel good, you look good, but then you get a number attached to it and it might change your mind completely.
– [Cassey] 26 and 29 puts you in what they call,
for women, like acceptable, whatever that means. So when you see these numbers,
how does it make you feel? – I kinda go back and forth with this because, at one point, I wanna
say like they’re just numbers, but then at what point do those numbers turn into greater health
risks or something like that? I hate that the body
fat is called acceptable. It just sounds so terrible. Like, you’re all right. Like, you’re not great,
but you’re all right.
– I am in the same boat. Like, I feel like that
doesn’t reflect who I am. Health is my priority, so I feel like I shouldn’t
be labeled in this way. (both laughing) – [Cassey] Irene, you are
more than just essential fat, so women right here on this scale, essential fat is 10 to 13%, and for men, it’s two to five percent. Darlyn, it will put you
in the obesity category, but I want to know how you feel about how these numbers impact you personally, and do you think it has any marker on what your health is? – No, I don’t think it has
anything to do with that. It’s so different from person to person. – I mean, if I’m 44 now, I
don’t know what I was before. (all laughing) – [Cassey] What is the biggest takeaway you think you guys learned today? – For me, my biggest
takeaway I think is that we’re all unique individuals. – It’s interesting to hold this up and it’s kind of like my
label right now, right? Like, it’s like I am this number and we don’t walk around showing people, telling people like, hi, this is my BMI.
– I think for me, it’s
been like a huge wake-up. We are, way more connected and in tune with each other. I’m hoping to like be super
stoked on meeting people who maybe are struggling now because to like help bring
this greater awareness of like, we’re human. These numbers are not necessarily a great indication
of somebody’s true health. And like what exactly are they measuring? The body fat percentage
on based on what numbers? – This is just trying to attach a number to the health and mental
state to like health because mental health is a big part of your health as a whole too.
Like, it doesn’t matter how you look or what all these numbers are, it’s if you’re happy with
how you are and your body and what you’re doing, who
you surround yourself with, at the end of the day, those are the things
that make you healthy. – Hearing everyone’s experience, it’s been great to just know like, that we all have different stories
and different backgrounds, but in a lot of ways,
like we’re not alone. And some of the things that
we’re feeling and experiencing are similar. – You see a lot of girls and you think, wow, she looks amazing. And then you start to
talk to her and she’s, “you know, I have to lose weight.” She’s not happy with herself and all of them have their struggle. – We all can defy what a scale
or something else made say or despise the stereotypes
that others may have. Doesn’t matter how you look or like what a number says, it’s about the person.
– I feel more comfortable. I think we came in not
knowing each other at all, I think we’re leaving
all as friends after this. (all laughing) – Wow you guys! So many takeaways from this video and I just wanna say thank you, to the women who participated, because it’s not easy to
talk about your weight and your health in front of people and their vulnerability
allowed us to better understand how we are judging other
women every single day. Whether or not you think it’s
conscious or subconscious, we do it. You cannot judge a person’s
health based on how they look, you cannot judge a person’s health based on how much they weigh. There is so much more to someone
than those numbers, okay? There’s a whole story behind a person that we need to take
the time to get to know.
So you guys, I hope you
enjoyed today’s video and if you want more like this, go ahead and comment below
and I’ll see you next time. Bye. (delightful music).
