Fat Fiancees

For the Bahima people of Western Uganda, fat is beautiful - at least for women. Men measure a woman's attractiveness by her obesity, so young women prepare for marriage by doing the least possible exercise and eating the most possible food.

By the time these women make their vows, they have difficulty walking and cracks in their skin.
