Is a Thigh Gap Healthy or Unhealthy?

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Will the barrage of articles condemning those who dare to want slimmer thighs or *gasp*, a ‘thigh gap’, ever cease?!

What intrigues me is that every.single.article makes it a point to tell women and girls that having a thigh gap is “unhealthy” and that only underweight or anorexic women have thigh gaps. Or that is is impossible to get a thigh gap in a healthy manner without wide hips!

Tell me something: Which one of these bodies looks unhealthy to you?

ALL THIGH GAPS ARE NOT CREATED EQUALLY!

There is no one thigh gap size that fits all! A gap can vary in its size and every woman/girl who wants slimmer thighs has something different in mind when it comes to the gap! Furthermore, here is the definition for unhealthy as given by thefreedictionary.com:

UNHEALTHY

a. Being in a state of ill health; sick.
b. Characterized by or symptomatic of ill health: an unhealthy pallor.
c. Causing or conducive to poor health; unwholesome: an unhealthy diet.
2. Harmful to character or moral health; corruptive: unhealthy reading material.
3. Characterized by or symptomatic of disturbed mental health: took an unhealthy interest in violence and fires.
4. Of a risky nature; dangerous: an unhealthy predicament.
There is nothing inherently “unhealthy” about a thigh gap or even the process required to get one (at least as outlined in my book, “The Thigh Gap Hack”. 
Being in a state of ill health; sick.
I am in the best state of health of my life! Promoting regular exercise and a clean diet free of brain fogging sugars, simple carbs, unhealthy fats, etc. will do that to you. Everyone knows exercise and whole foods will put you in the exact opposite camp of ill health and sickness. However, I would venture a guess that 90% of the American population that does not exercise, binges regularly on fast food and tons of sugar, and then feeds on medicines and drugs aren’t feeling so great.

Food & Eternal Sunshine Of the Spotless Mind

eternal-sunshine-of-the-spotless-mindOne of my all time favorite movies is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. In case you’ve never heard of it, here’s a brief description:

A man, Joel Barish, heartbroken that his girlfriend Clementine underwent a procedure to erase him from her memory, decides to do the same.

How does this relate to your food and diet? Well the movie doesn’t per say, but I got to thinking the other day about why we crave certain foods (all the unhealthy/tasty treats) and what we go through when we are trying to cleanse or detox. The reason I was thinking about this particular subject is because a friend of mine was recently telling me about these very popular rice pudding cakes offered by “From Rice to Riches” in NYC. Apparently, these rice pudding cakes are a decadent treat and I was being lauded into just trying it once as “it couldn’t hurt”. Read More
