This exploitation of female sexuality in advertising has negative consequences for women. Images of thin models seen, for example, in TV and magazine advertisements, and good-looking muscular men appear daily in magazines, films and television. Thanks to beauty pageants such as “Miss World” and “Miss Universe”, as well as locally organised beauty pageants, teenage girls now define beauty by the shape and size of their bodies with the impression that being skinnier is sexier...love you for you!

From a "controversial" ad campaign by the Body Shop
I remember this ad campaign!
"There are 3 billion women who don't look like supermodels and only 8 who do." This 1990s-era print advertisement (and Barbie spoof) from The Body Shop is but one example of a large company using media to promote body love. How can we all use media to love our bodies? - popculturez.com

"Myth: If you want to put on muscle and burn fat, you should shun all carbs. Truth: Never mind the late Dr. Atkins - you need carbs to build a lean, muscular physique. Much of that, according to Skolnik, is because carbohydrates are the primary fuel for muscle cells during high-intensity workouts. A revved-up gym session burns a ton of calories and stimulates muscle growth, both of which translate into a leaner, meaner you. Take away all the pasta, rice and potatoes and your muscles may be forced to convert protein into energy - a definite contradiction to muscle growth. Carbs are also a must after training because they, along with protein, stimulate muscle repair and hypertrophy. “Carbohydrates consumed postworkout will boost insulin levels that help drive protein into muscle cells,” Skolnik says. So don’t hold back too much on carbs - just keep your choices healthy. After all, research now shows that women don’t burn as many carbs as their male counterparts do during exercise, so you don’t need as much as sports nutritionists once thought. Hers recommends that women involved in serious strength training aim for a daily carbohydrate intake of 1-1.5 grams per pound of bodyweight. Timing is important when your goal is to build muscle and burn fat. Breakfast, pre- and postworkout are the best times to consume carbs. In your post-exercise meal, take in 20-30 grams of fast-digesting carbs, such as white breads and sugars, to boost insulin levels and drive muscle recovery. Otherwise, make sure most of your carbohydrates come from complex sources like fruits, veggies and whole grains." Awesome tips and inspiration here: http://shes-fine.tumblr.com/

I eat healthy and do NOT look like this!
Great website! Nutrition, workouts, plus resources for those looking to start living a healthy lifestyle. She is the perfect example of lifting to lose weight! The key with bodybuilding and weight loss is to eat CLEAN. That means as little processed food as possible! If you don't want to look thick from the weights, you have to really watch what you eat! She does the explaining :)
Women do NOT have the levels of testosterone necessary to “bulk up” the way men do. LIFT WEIGHTS if you want to be “tone” “lean” or “muscular”. Spending hours on the cardio will NOT “tone” you… Just like picking up a heavy dumbbell will NOT make you blow up the next day like Arnold Schwarzenegger. It takes YEARS to develop bodybuilder-size muscle and that is with intense, consistent training, diet, steroids oftentimes and an extreme lifestyle commitment!

This is something you do not expect in a woman. Yes, there are may muscular women out there, but if you are a woman and your muscles start to become like this picture...then it just does not look right.

luisita leers The circus artist and powerwoman Luisita Leers was born into a circus family - her mother was Gertrude Reichenbach who appeared with acrobatic act. Luisita Leers conquered the circus world with her acrobatic performing arts in the 20s and she impressed with a muscular physique which was only seldom existing for women at that time.

Erin Stern - From one of my all time favorite photo shoots showing Erin training hard and heavy. Proving that without the drugs women just can't become "too muscular". Cardio eats muscle, and muscle eats fat and creates shape. Go figure.

This is probably my favorite "Transformation of the Week" on bodybuilding.com; she includes an achievable/realistic meal plan (not just "eggs every meal" etc. like other women), and has the balanced/cute/muscular body I'm aiming for! Definitely inspiring.

We should bring this back! "From the mid-1950s to the early 1970s, women had to appear as ladylike as possible, even when doing something as traditionally masculine as working out with weights. This girl is doing a seated press with respectably heavy weight, but her high heels and helmet0like hairdo are like fig leaves preserving her femininity."
