Since the early Egyptian and Greek times, men and women have wanted the perfect body. In those times, the more fit a man’s body was, the closer he was to a god, and for women the better their fit curves and booty, they closer they were to a goddess.
As a matter of fact, they would hold competitions to show who had the best figure. But here is the funny thing: the perfect figure was created by an artist in Greek times, and even with the hours men and women spent in gyms it was an impossible standard. Now let’s fast forward a few thousand years and we still work to set insane standards with fashion magazine using Photoshop and airbrush techniques. What I’m here to tell you is that there is no perfect human form. It was a made up standard. But that doesn’t mean we should give up on striving to be the best we can be. No one’s genetic makeup will be exactly the same as another’s. Some people struggle to lose weight, some struggle to gain weight, some can tone up easily. This is your journey, your fitness quest and you need to do what is best for you. Don’t let society dictate how you have to look.
