Day 29 personal blog challenge (mini-rant)
Seems like the current standard for fit women is that they have big boobs and a 6-pack.
Well, from what I know about 6-packs, a women would have to have less than 8% body to show off their stomach muscles. Then the ideal is that they also have big boobs.
Sure, you can develop your pecs and build up that part of your anatomy. But at 8% per cent body fat, there normally isn't going to be much breast left, So what happens? They get implants.
It always really bugs me. These celebrities, fitness models, clean-living experts are role models that we emulate. Sure, they eat right and exercise. But then they feel the need to go under the knife. Isn't this hypocritical and contradictory?
We use them as inspiration for our goals & we take their advice. And a part of their bodies is fake! When they give reasons for the surgery, it seems to come down to "aesthetics" and commercial gain. Apparently body acceptance and appreciation for individuality isn't part of their healthy plan. Apparently making money is.
