Do You Think Celebrities & Models Are Too Skinny?

For a second day in a row I have managed to finish my P90X3 workout before midnight, well 2 o'clock in the afternoon to be exact for today. My main goal is to slowly move my workouts to just after I arise from bed in the mornings. I'm not a morning person, so this is going to be a tough task to take on.

My first thoughts before exercising daily this year, was that I would lose weight quickly, but that hasn't exactly happened yet, actually I've gained one-pound. I've been eating healthy and I've banned sodas from my diet, but it seems I can't lose weight as quickly as I use to. The workout program isn't a total loss, as I have loss a little over one-inch on my waist. I have also noticed an increase in strength in my arms, legs and gluts. Plus, I'm starting to become more flexible; AKA - I can now do a few yoga poses.

With all the diets and exercise programs being endorsed by celebrities on television, some of us are gullible to believe those unwanted pounds will magically disappear in one week; though in realty it takes much longer, but I can easily understand how one would believe this, as we have all seen actors or actresses magically drop weight or build up muscle for a movie role in a very short time. The average person doesn't have a personal trainer to help you workout and keep you on track. Plus, we don't have twelve hours a day to waste on exercising.

Celebrities, including models, are not the greatest role models for anyone, as the media tries to push their unhealthy images as being perfect. If you have ever scene a runway model on a magazine cover, you'll understand exactly what I mean. They're just too skinny; giving young adults the bad idea of what beauty should really be.

I'm not the only person who thinks models look unhealthy. While I was visiting The Gossip Blog, I read an article about the Olympic skier, Lindsey Vonn, who attended the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2014 in New York, also thinks models are too skinny and unhealthy.

Lindsey Vonn couldn't participate in the Sochi Olympics this year because of an injury, but she did participate as a runway model (but in crutches) for the Celebrities Go Red For Women The Heart Truth Collection. She has been involved in several photo shoots, where she has met models who are far too skinny and most likely don't workout. To read the full article please visit hop on over to The Gossip Blog.

  1. You are absolutely right, I don't think many models are naturally that thin, they must be starving themselves and that goes with internal organ shrinkage. what annoys me as well is when they say they use 'Plus size models' (ie. bigger girls) and they are called a size 12 a Plus size ! That's ridiculous.
