You might see this ad on your livejournal page. I do. And I don't understand it. To me a perfect a body isn't transparent. I don't know if anyone needs to be as skinny as this after model above. Sure you have no body fat, but you probably couldn't help move a couch upstairs. The before model looks like a few lbs more than your average woman. And what's wrong with that? She's got big hips and probably a big booty, but she's by no means morbidly obese. If you're that girl, why can't you just drop 20lbs and accept yourself? Why lose that 20lbs in 6 weeks? Take your damned time. Why must you go from one extreme to the other? There's something called a middle ground that society and the media just isn't cool with anymore. If you're not a pencil but you're not football field, then you have a perfect figure in my book. Even if you do measure your waist in centimeters, or miles, you're still a human being, and neither one is ideal, or healthy, but it still doesn't really matter in the scheme of things.
There's another ad floating around here for the dudes that's like "Get ripped in 6 weeks! Rar!" They show a fairly porportioned average dude for the before model that looks healthy and has the right amount of muscle mass. The after model is some jacked up roid freak that looks like he wants to snap into someone like a Slim Jim. Why must the majority of men have to look like Arnold pre-Governator? What's wrong with a little gut area. It makes a better plate for loose cheetos.
Marketing's standards for what a human being should look like have become out of control. You don't need to buy that shit to look good. Just take care of yourself. Eat a salad at least 3 times a week. Shower daily. Brush yo teeth. And walk places that you could easily drive to. Drink some water. That's basically it.
Here I have altered the above ad. Here's the after model of it:
