Weight has always been a factor in our attraction to the opposite sex. Generally for us men, we find ladies who are slim and sexy attractive. For the ladies, those who have sculpted muscles and a flat abdomen usually fare better in the art of seduction.
The general idea for males is to have a V-Shape form in which the shoulders are broad while the abdomens and the hips are slim. For the females, what is normally considered as physically sexy is for them to have curves from the abdomen to the hips. An appropriate breast and buttocks size is also a bonus.
However, there are also those who are attracted to somewhat the opposite of this, if I may say so, norm. There are some men who would like their girls to be a little chubby instead of “super model skinny.” There are some women though who find bulky, muscular males unappealing and gross.
The reason for these contradictions may be because our body figure indirectly gives other people a hint of our lifestyle and priorities. Those hints are the things that may either attract them towards us or turn them off.
A slim and sculpted figure may tell other people that we take care of our health and that we prioritize aesthetics. Either that or that we are employed in a physically-demanding job, like an athlete maybe. A protruded abdomen mostly tell people that we drink and we like to party a lot. A little extra weight here and there can give the idea that you have no time for the gym but you have been busy enough that you burn calories because of your activities. If you are tipping the scales, then it might have people concluding that you have been eating more and than you are active less. However, it also may have them conclude that you are well-off since you have the resources to eat as much and work as less.
Keep in mind however, that these are just other people’s opinions and it’s going to be up to you how you want to live your life. It’s still an incentive though if we try to lose a little extra weight so we could enhance our physical performance. It would come as no surprise that we will be able to perform at our peak level if we are slim. Also, weight loss can deliver us from illnesses and health hazards such as strokes and heart attacks. Never do it excessively though for it may compromise your immunities.
If you want to have an idea of what your ideal weight should be, you should calculate your body mass index. In a way, it’s a ratio of your weight and height. What you want to do is convert your weight into kilogram and your height into meters. Multiply your height by itself and then divide your weight by the product. The quotient will be your body mass index. Keep in mind that your body mass index is not the amount of your body fat. It is simply, a guide that we can utilize to see if we have an ideal weight for our height.
