Society: Girls, your biggest asset is your beauty. You can’t be strong, you can’t be smart, but you’d better be pretty. Heaven help you if you aren’t.

Society: Why are girls so vain? Their selfies are bringing our downfall.

Baked Zucchini Fritters…RECIPE

August 25th, 2014

I haven’t always been fat. But I’ve been fat for probably the last eight years or something, which is really fun and really great. I love eating food and drinking beer and having fun with my life. But I was also was kind of depressed a little bit when I was fat. And I think there’s probably people out there who can agree and understand what that feels like. And I tell ‘em: Hey! If you just like bust your ass and get after it, all it takes is like six months, really. Six months flies by, whether you are working out every day, whether you’re not. So if you feel compelled to do something about it, take some action and get in shape… Do it! You could, you really could.

Team no abs

Team you are so stunning and strong and fab.

But also team no abs because clean eating is for demons

^ I hate the word “clean” for food.Like if i wash a cookie does that make it clean?In all serious, just eat in moderation, fuck this YOU HAVE TO BE CLEAN AND PERFECT bullshit.

^^^^^^^^

No but eating clean is the majority of seeing abs.
Moderation is key but eating clean isn’t a bad thing and not about perfection. It’s just hard.

I think the point is the term ‘clean’ should not be used. It implies that there’s ‘clean’ food and ‘dirty’ food, and to a lot of people on their fitness journey, there’s a lot of guilt, disappointment, and resentment that comes with eating said ‘dirty’ food. It shouldn’t be like that because a lot of people who have these feelings of disappointment and resentment have signs of disordered eating habits. 
There’s food that has a lot of nutritional value, and there’s food that has less. Fit both into a balanced diet however way you want. 
'Abs' should never take precedent over a healthy mind. 

^ that was my point but much more eloquently put thank you.
