8 Reasons Why Being Strong Is Sexier Than Being Skinny
1. Staying clean and working out will mentally help you get through life’s stressful and anxious times.
Whether it’s a bad breakup, a fight with your best friend, or a career situation, if you’re a strong chick, you won’t crumble under the pressure. Working out releases endorphins, which makes your body trick your mind into feeling happier. If you’re strong from the outside, you can radiate that inward and push through the tough period.
2. Depriving yourself is bad mentally as well.
Being hungry all the time is one of the worst feelings ever. That stereotype of the mean supermodel who’s always grumpy because she’s constantly starving is unfortunately a semi-true one. Not eating makes your mood and energy levels plummet. When your body goes into starvation mode, it kind of freaks out, and you might have a nervous breakdown if you see someone eating a slice of cake. Have that cake, and feel just as happy when you work it off!
3. The media is always gonna throw things our way that are unattainable.
Creating your own standards of beauty is best thing you can do to feel powerful. You know you’re a babe, and no one can refute that. No matter how slender, curvy, or natural a woman is, Hollywood will probably find a way to tear her apart. So embrace yourself for what you are, instead of trying to fit in a mold. That alone will give you a glow.
4. Being active instead of dieting makes you feel happier, because dieting doesn’t release any endorphins.
You’ll realize how overcoming physical hurdles are possible if you just get rid of your mental pain. Releasing endorphins and knowing that your body is amazing is a way more valuable asset then portion control. Working out cheers up your body, and the sense of achievement every time you get a level higher in your workout feels so much better than saying no to your favorite indulgences.
5. It’ll make you a warrior in work situations, and other relationships.
No one messes with a confident, strong badass who works her body to fatigue. You won’t be intimidated by anything. You don’t need a man to fix stuff for you, and you don’t need him to help you with taxes either. You don’t have any physical limits, so neither should your ambition. You thrive on challenges, remember? Like Ronda Roussey said, “my mother never raised me to be a Do Nothing Bitch”.
6. Guys actually love strong women.
And your confidence will be infectious to him. It’s a weird stereotype that dudes like waif-thin, anorexic chicks. Maybe a rare percentage of millionaires who are just looking to be dominant sugar daddies. Guys love a little extra to hold on to, especially when it’s fit abs and muscles instead of skinny girl flab. A strong girl’s butt is the best butt. A muscular body is a way better surprise than a boring skinny one with no definition.
7. Guys also think that having an eating buddy is the sexiest thing ever.
A girl that doesn’t really diet but is aware of what she puts into her body is hot because she’s healthy, but not neurotic. Counting calories is stupid and unnecessarily stressful. You treat fat like energy, rather than something to be ashamed of. You rarely feel guilty about pigging out, and there’s honestly nothing like bonding with bae over a pile of mac and cheese or Twix bars.
8. It also makes you more independent in your relationships with guys, which they love.
You don’t need them to open any jars – you’re self sufficient. You’re not constantly fishing for compliments or nitpicking yourself. You adore your body, which makes them love it even more. You’re with them because you want them, not because you need them or depend on them in any unhealthy way. Being a strong woman makes you a strong partner.
