You know, like when people are talking about their bodies “well at least I’m not skin and bones” “At least I’m not a fat cow” I mean shouldn’t people be trying to be fit? Because it always comes up when people are told to lose/gain weight. (Of course they may use a variety of phrases I just stuck with those two to emphasize my point)
!Also! why is chubby considered healthy? There’s a healthy amount of fat 14%-28% and then there’s just getting fat. Is it considered healthy because society is getting fatter?
It’s considered healthy so people feel good about their chubbiness.
And it’s either fat or skinny, because almost 70% of the population is fat (overweight/obese) and all of the people in the media are almost exclusively skinny (or lean/muscular if they are male) so we only have exposure to fat people and skinny people, which is why “healthy” is left in the dust.
and really.. any body fat percentage over 22 looks chubby on a female, and if they are slimmer, then over 20% they look skinny-fat.
