Our bodies are the result of years of choices and countless outside influences. So how does our body image influence how we interact with the world, and how has the world influenced our body image? We take a look at these question, and we explore the "benefits of being ugly" in this episode.
What happens when you feel like you're a wearing a body that reflects the choices of twenty years ago and not the discipline and diet of today? How much ownership should you take in developing your own body image or fitness goals in light of society's influence? We're not helpless, but we're not invulnerable. So where does the responsibility lie?
We take a second (and final) crack at attraction as we try to decide how and why our bodies play such a large role in deciding what's beautiful and what's not. And what happens when a guy JB previously liked wants to come on the show and say a few things? It's getting a little crazy on this week's episode.
How do we reconcile our personal preferences with what society grooms us to be attracted to? If at first a man doesn't find a woman attractive, can that change over time? Is it healthy to adjust your looks, or even your personality, in order to make yourself more pleasing to someone? We answer these questions and few more on this week's episode.
Is it true? Do men refuse to go out with women because they're fat, even if they are attracted to personality or character? In short, yes.
This answer sparked a phone conversation that led to this podcast. We're deep diving into the body issues and shame that plague both men and women. Hollywood has an agenda, doctors offer conflicting advice, and we've all got a story. We share ours, teeming with confessions and only a little embarrassment, on this week's episode.
