If this is stating the obvious to you, okay.
I want to point out some facts about sex-based aesthetics.
The male equivalent to this:
Is not a super jacked good looking fitness model.
You shouldn’t be. The literal male equivalent of those girls is this guy:
They literally have the same body type. Same body fat percentage, same muscle mass.
So what’s the point?
That guy and those girls have to put in the same amount of effort to get that body type. In other words, it requires less effort to have a good body according to society if you are female.
I hear some users on this site claim that a hot girl deserves a hot guy because of the amount of effort she puts into being skinny. Buuut, that’s not really how it works, as you can see from the above photographs.
The amount of effort required to fuel this transformation:
Far exceeds the amount of effort it takes to be a skinny girl.
What most girls don’t understand is that bodyweight is divided into two categories: body fat and muscle mass.
The two categories are completely independent from each other, and muscle mass actually weighs more than body fat per unit volume.
However, due to low testosterone levels women never really build muscle mass when exercising so its easy to believe that maybe they just don’t understand how the two systems interact given they only ever really function within one of the two, typically trying to reduce body fat %.
Thus, it can be easy to believe that your ‘strict diet’ of salads, soy and greek yogurt is difficult enough warrant deserving a man who ‘puts in effort’ to eat an equally ‘healthy’ diet.
Like, okay, but a guy who eats that same diet will look like the dude in the very first photo above, not the second.
To get to the body transformation in the second photo, a guy has to not only get their body fat percentage low, they also need to get their muscle mass up. It’s understandable a lot of girls don’t understand this aspect of fitness for men. But it requires intake of at least 1gram of protein per pound of bodyweight, every single day. And since muscle mass weighs more than fat, the number grows as the man grows his muscles. He must also make sure his calorie intake is a surplus, meaning he needs to eat *more* not less in order to cause the construction of new muscle tissue.
Here’s the problem: how do you eat a calorie surplus *and* reduce body fat at the same time? Welcome to the world of male fitness.
It isn’t the same as female fitness where all you need to do is hop on a treadmill, do some squats, eat some soy and run a calorie deficit. So, just a friendly reminder not to think just cause’ you’re a skinny girl that you automatically deserve a fitness model.
And that’s a whole different ballpark. Fitness model bodies actually can’t be attained without steroids. But again, whole different conversation. Will write that take another time.
