[ Newspaper throwback ] How can I keep thin?May 14, 2014
Before I begin penning the article, I have to admit that I have been thinking for a while to post this, since weight is a much-discussed issue these days. I, too, cringe behind my desk when I see yet another young girl starve herself to death to achieve the much wanted thigh gap. And with every year passing by, the younger the girls are, that fall victim through the unhealthy looking glass called media. It leaves many a girl frustrated, as a thigh gap is not physically possible for most people and the obsessed dieting gets into the extremes. I am not someone that will tell you "hey you know, you might be overweight, but don't diet cause big is also beautiful." No I won't say that. But -before you curse me- I do think that a more voloptuous body can be just as beautiful as a thin body and vice versa, but what I think is even more beautiful ... is a healthy body. And that is what we should strive for. Health, vitality, energy and, hey if you feel good in your skin ... then who cares if you are thick, thin, tall, petite or whatever! As long as you are healthy! In the end I don't think the article below does any harm and it's an interesting insight in how Hollywood stayed thin back in the day. Cause believe me, weight was just as much an issue as it is now and this article proves!
