It’s not a huge surprise that women are self-conscious going into beach season but some of the sacrifices they are willing to make in exchange for the perfect bikini body are. In a recent survey in Shape magazine they revealed some summertime stresses and what most ladies were willing to give up in order to score the physical appearance they are aiming for.
One of the most shocking discoveries in this survey was the fact that 68 percent of women agreed that they would be willing to give up sex for at least a month if it meant that they could have their desired body. Sure, it’s only a month, but that’s still a large majority of people who aren’t happy with how they look.
I’m a firm believer that people, male and female, should work to stay fit year-round not because it’s important to look sexy and lean all the time, but because it isn’t all about cosmetics. People worry way too much about how they look rather than their actual health. The amount of crash diets and silly sacrifices people make take a toll of their bodies internally. Why wouldn’t you just alter your lifestyle a little bit and dodge the pressure of hitting the gym two times a day or starving yourself just because you might head to the beach soon? Am I alone in this thought process or is anyone else with me?
