Why middle easterns care about appearance a lot?

I notice most arabs look down at you if you are overweight. I traveled to middle east and noticed most of them re in shape and try on hairstyles, makeup, and fashionable clothes.

    I am middle eastern. All the people who wrote comments here are filled with bullshit. No. We don't care about appearance. It is just that, in our genetics, we are all very skinny. If people are fat, they may think they aren't actually middle eastern and whatever. So there is your answer.

    Most Middle Eastern countries honor Islamic law where all women must be covered.

    I'm American and I care about appearance a lot, too. I'm not sure what nationality has to do with it.

    Huh? Most Arabs LIKE fat women! They think to themselves "She can survive a long trek through the desert without much food and water, so I want HER! That skinny one on the other hand will die halfway through the journey from Mecca to Medina."
