The outcome is that the we suffer more eating disorders, undertake fad diets, pop unproven pills, & spend our money on useless quick fixes machines and programs. Unfortunately the fact is most of us will not realize the ideal even if we wrap , pop , drink , rub , think, kick , spin or vibrate our way to the advertisers ideals of what we should look like or how we can get there.
Hey now for a reality check just look at the Olympics , did you not notice something , all the competitors were of different sizes ,shapes, age profiles, not air brushed but real human beings.Yes some look really good but we always have some people who look really good even in your office , unfortunately that’s life.
My advise is forget the advertisers and ignore the path of least resistance. The best way to improve body image is to take up some form of physical exercise and eat a balanced diet. Go exercise in whatever way you enjoy, walk run, boot camp , dance, cycle , kick-box or whatever because it’s GOOD FOR YOU. It will not cost you a bomb and you will get fit for life the caveat however being you must do it regularly at least 3 – 5 times a week.
As you get fit you will improve your health , quality of life you will also feel more confident , have fun , make new friends , reduce stress , reduce body fat, look better, have more energy, improve sleep, become mentally tougher, learn new sports and have new life experiences. Whatever it is, just do it , you will have no regrets
