I never had a problem up until this with sim weight gain. haha
Both of my 'sim' parents were in shape and thin...they had a kid, and one day I noticed the kid had a bit of a belly. And he ate regularly..with his family.
Then..he just kept getting bigger and bigger.
When he finally aged up into a teenager...a fat teenager..I could work him out. And I constantly have to work him out for him to stay fit!
haha it's sorda funny..but annoying. No matter what I do, he just keeps getting fat. lol
Could the natural cook trait make them more likely to be overweight?
Everything sucks, until it doesn't.

I am looking for someone who can convert a couple of TS2 meshes to TS3 for my world project. If you would be willing to consider this please PM me for details.

I have had her lift weights off and on her entire adult life but now that she's an elder she looks anorexic. One of her daughters is so skinny her face looks drawn and gaunt. I had the other of her daughters marry a fat Sim just to see if I could get Sims somewhere in the middle.
The first bit sure is weird, but that last part kind of makes sense - unlike real life, in Sims 3 elders apparently cannot have muscles (Maxis never knew my form room teacher, obviously, who could probably wrestle a bear). Since you were building muscles and not gaining fat, when she became elder she would have lost it...
I would have thought that a sims eating and exercise patterns would stay constant unless you manipulated them.
So maybe it has to do with how rich or poor your sims are.

My Buffy Summers sim which I had shared with some other people--well I need to ask them how she is faring in their game. The one photo somebody shared with me showed she was looking anorexic in their game, too. In mine she started out slender and just looks absolutely skeletal now, kind of like Sarah Gellar did look in real life after doing the Buffy show for several seasons. But it's not a very good look for my sim. She is always working out in the Riverview gym. So I think autonomously, they do tend to seek out activities relating to their traits, and some of those traits may lead to activity to make some sims chronically thin, or inactivity, which makes them chronically fat. I don't know about anyone else, but I find Sunset Valley had the obesity epidemic going on more than RiverView seems to.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I cannot accept, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those I had to kill because they pissed me off.

However, I can see your statement holding true for when the sims are not under direct control. They did seem to get fat or thin for no reason, with obesity being positively an epidemic for some of us.
