It's hard to find pictures of heavy-set hippie men (or women, for that matter) from that era. Leaving aside the question of whether or not people overall weighed less, it seems to me that the hippie aesthetic leaned towards the thin side, and so maybe fat people self-selected themselves out. Also, virtually all the visual records we have came from photojournalists, many of them straight men, who focused on the "cute hippie chicks" and probably overlooked a lot of others in the numerous depictions we have of protests, be-ins, park gatherings, and so on.

Here's one from a San Francisco protest, probably 1968 or 1969, with two heavier men in the center (click to enlarge:)





Since those halcyon days, middle age has crept up on many. So here are some old hippies for you all to enjoy, since a lot of old hippie guys got fat.
















And last but not least, Jerry Garcia (RIP)
