Gay 101. It’s okay to be a skinny bitch if you’re healthy.

tumblr_mourpvyoCi1srk5jbo1_500With all the focus on muscles and getting ripped it would be easy for skinny guys to feel just because they don’t have killer pecs and big biceps that they are “unhealthy” or undesirable.

Muscles aside even just being on the slim side of average can sometimes leave us feeling like we’re not fit enough, especially when the media is full of hot buff guys. With all the focus on how we look on the outside it’s easy to forget that our outward appearance is a reflection of our inner health.

The fact is that you don’t have to look like Superman to feel like Superman, and you don’t have to look like Superman to be healthy.

Being healthy should be more important than being buff.

To be honest I don’t like the term skinny bitch. It’s used far too often as a put down.

There are plenty of buff guys out there who can’t run a lap of the block, are covered in acne from steroid use and have creaking joints from over training. I guess the point I am trying to make is that buffer doesn’t mean healthier. The most healthy and the most fit I have ever been was when I was playing Waterpolo. I felt alive every day and at a spritely 63kgs I wasn’t by any means “Buff”.

Everybody has a different body type. Some of us are larger, some are skinnier, taller, shorter etc. What matters more than being bigger is being healthy. If you are naturally a “skinny bitch” then so be it. Eat well, keep fit and exercise and you will still feel amazing. There is nothing wrong with being healthy just the way you are. There are so many trainers out there telling us get bigger, bulk up, eat to gain blah blah blah. It would be easy to think that the only way to be worth anything is to weigh something. Rubbish.

So if you are one of those “Skinny bitches” don’t ever be afraid to own it. Eat good food, get some exercise and worry about being healthy first. Your inner glow will give you all you need to impress.
