I here women on this site complain about overly skinny guys all the time. I also see them all over the place, and now in these recent months I am also one of them.
I'm going to delvge into why this is the case for so many male Americans. Why can't they all be walking Thor's right ladies? If only they just worked out and gave a damn! Those lazy skinny boys!
In the world we have finite food supply for each given day. Well. I'm not the first to ask the question 'if we were to evenly divide up all food supply and distribute it exactly the same to every individual -- all 7.5 billion of us, at once -- then there would only be 2,800 calories to go around to each person.
Well. To achieve a Thor like physique, a man must consume well beyond 2,800 calories per day. In fact, for example, according to Cortana Dwyane Johnson consumes 5,200 calories per day, or 10lbs of food per day
in order to maintain his physique.
Here's the problem: because economics preserves supply with increased demand, price increases with scarcity. This means the following: once you begin to exceed the 2,800 calorie equilibrium, things begin getting exponentially expensive -- and fast.
Not to mention, every time a person like Dwyane 'the rock' eats for a day he takes food away from some unknown number of other people -- as does anyone who consumes more than 2,800 calories. That's why it gets expensive.
Narrow this down to 'healthy' calories and the price soars even higher. And ditto for lean protein and meats.
So what happens? A guy like Dwayne is a movie star with millions of dollars. He can afford his 5,000 calorie diet.
What can I say.
However, unfortunately, what he's doing is ultimately not good for the rest of us.
The phenomena is called The Malthusian Trap.
Replace 'population growth' with 'muscle growth' and it applies perfectly. If we continue increasing food supply, male bodies will just continue growing. Moreover, enough will never be good enough. Guys will want to get bigger and bigger. But even ignoring that, there isn't enough lean meat to go around for 5,000 calories per person anyway. 2,800 is fine for ensuring regular baseline nutrition -- but that is exactly what creates skinny guys
And this is what's going on. Also, if they are financially dependent and live at home then they are at the mercy of their families eating habbits -- which may be total shit or pretty good. It's luck of the draw. But it seems to me most families are feeding their boys packaged tortellini and pre cooked meatballs that's simple flour carbs and powdered cheese (not good) and processed meats once a day with some tiny breakfast. And it's a half-assed meal too. Definitely not capable of producing a good body.
that was before Beiber got his tatoos and starting eating better.
He had to up his calorie intake to the point where it would get a little expensive for a working class guy his age to pay for that nutrition program. And not only would a working class person struggle to pay for that, he would also be burning to many calories at work.
Working Class Jobs are Too Cardio Intensive
Not only would a working class guy struggle to fund food intake and gym memberships, they'd also burn too many calories working in factories, warehouses and construction and what not to sustain any muscle mass and growth.
In this way, the only guys who can afford a goof physique are those who get paid an above average income, don't work in manual labor and have the free time to eat large meals at regular intervals and workout regularly.
Guess what, high paying office jobs don't allow time to eat 7 meals a day. Even if they pay well and are not laborious.
That leaves two or three groups leftover. Artists, Actors and Fitness Industry Members.
And those are, really, the only men in our society who have good bodies. Well, them and boys under the age of 22 who have rich parents who can fund their diet and workout routines while in high school amd college. And that's the only men we see in society who are actually built. Aside from a few scragglers who manage to pull off bodybuilding in unfavorable circumstamces. However, the vast majority end up looking like Beiber beforr tattoos.
What about fat guys?
Ever thought about how McDonald's is cheaper than meat from Whole Foods?
Turns out heavily processed low nutrition foods are *way cheaper* than natural healthy whole foods. Some guys hate feeling hungry all the time, so they cave and go get McDonald's every day. As a result they get lots of empty calories that ultimately turn into high amounts of body fat.
So we end up with lots of skinny guys, and lots of fat guys, and very few physically fit guys. And that's why it happens.
