The popular thing to say when we see a skinny Hollywood actress like Jessica Alba is this..."she needs to put on some weight" -or- "she needs to put some meat on her bones". Is this just something we say to make people feel better about themselves for being overweight?
I'm not afraid to admit it. I really believe that women look wonderful when they are thin. They look wonderful in clothes. Their faces look better. I believe that skinny women look healthier than the so called "curvy" women.
Women have a different bone structure then men. Their hips and butt still look much different than ours when they are skinny. I argue that too much fat is what hides a woman's natural curves. When a woman is thin, her waist is smaller which ads greater contrast to her hips. When her thighs are slim, her butt looks better as well.
Really? Sure...that is a popular thing to say right now, but studies prove this wrong. It has been shown in university studies that animals that keep at a lower body weight and lower calorie consumption significantly outlive the bigger animals. Obviously...this needs to be studied in greater detail, but don't jump to conclusions that being thin is unhealthy.
What message do we want to send girls? Get fat and "curvy" because being in shape in unhealthy. I realize that it is easier to get fat than it is to stay in shape and look good. Do we tell girls this, because we believe they will be fat someday and we don't want them to get down on themselves? If anything, we need to teach these girls how to be fit and healthy.
Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Garner, etc...they all look wonderful. Don't get me wrong...I like the curvier actresses too, like Scarlett Johansson and Salma Hayek...but the skinnier Hollywood actresses look just as good.
