Women and body perception
I've been thinking a lot about women and body perception lately, and I wanted to get input from the wise folks here.
Many people blame the cult of female body hate on the media, saying they over-sexualise women, and make beauty standards impossibly unattainable (through airbrushing etc.) I'm not saying this isn't the case but...yawn. The media can't be the only reason women do horrendous things to themselves to look better? There's such a long history of it. Think of corsets, foot binding etc. Where do you guys think it comes from?
And Women, what is your least favourite body part? Is there a rational basis for this, or deep down do you know you are being hyper critical?
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
