Despite lower body fat % and the fact that some muscle on a woman is ideal, most women avoid it because muscle weighs more than fat (by volume).In other words, a woman who is the same size as another woman but has a higher amount of muscle than the other woman will actually weigh more than the less muscular woman.I have some super skinny friends who are considered really hot and always get hit on and then there are celebs who are super skinny, like Olivia Wilde and Megan Fox (she supposedly has a 23 inch waist!), that are considered these huge sex symbols and are number 1 on every ‘hot list.’ Oh boy… I knew that sooner or later this question would come up and I would have to answer it.So even though the woman looks better, she steps on the scale, sees a number she doesn’t like and then gets discouraged.It’s unfortunate that our culture is so weight-obsessed when the problem isn’t really weight itself, it’s fat. For most men, runway models are way too skinny to be considered an ideal body type.However, women are constantly dieting and exercising to make their bodies look ideal for men (and to be healthy too, of course).
You and your partner, or your friends, can figure out what feels right for you, whether that means having the man pay the bill or carry the packages."Just because we change things doesn't mean that we become rude," Pachter said.You should "help anybody who needs help, which is a much nicer environment." That said, if you're a woman and a man does move to open the door for you, Patcher said let them.So weight-loss shouldn’t necessarily be anyone’s goal. The problem is that a lot of women will go all-out on cardio and never do any weight lifting because they don’t want to get big muscles. You would need to have the intention to put on muscle to put on enough muscle to appear abnormally muscle-y.So don’t fear putting on muscle – a little bit of muscle actually looks good on women.
