Beyonce posted a picture of herself golfing while on vacation with her fabulous family and people are speculating that the singer/actress/everything else photoshopped her legs to reveal a thigh gap before making the photo public on social media.
Of course, people are up in arms!
I’m not sure why they would be though given Beyonce famously whittled her legs down to reveal a thigh gap during her grammy’s performance with Jay-Z.
SIDE NOTE: Want to know how she did it? I think she used water weight and dehydration tactics, which I will be covering in my next book: How to Lose Water Weight and Look Great in 2 weeks or less, but you can find out the other ways she could have gotten her thigh gap in this post.
Now, it should be noted that Mrs. Carter is bending her knees and leaning forward which will make anyone’s legs look slimmer and trimmer, so it’s possible there was no foul play involved. What do you think?
I think people need to stop trying to make Queen Bey the epitome of bootyliciousness since it’s obvious she doesn’t even want that physique or title anymore. She keeps dieting and trimming down for a reason: she clearly wants to look more mainstream, slender and feminine and loves to show off her body when she manages to drop a few pounds.
Beyonce won’t be your savior or poster child for women with thunder thighs anymore – and can you blame her? This is the same woman who strives for perfect in all that she does and wants to be anything but ordinary. This is also the same woman whose publicist tried to get unflattering images of her removed after her Super Bowl performance. In fact, those were the images that probably sparked her desire to get those thighs in check!
I can remember when I first told my boyfriend about the thigh gap and subsequently put him through the thigh gap test. My bemused beau obliged and to our surprise, he was indeed sporting a pretty sizable thigh gap!
You may be able to relate as you stretch, tone and do copious amounts of cardio in an attempt to winnow down those legs or keep your gap from closing and then catch a glimpse of your boyfriend of guy friend scarfing down pizza while his gap remains firmly in tact.
By the way, what should we call it? Man Gaps? Guy Gaps? Let me know your preferred or most creative terminology in the comments section.
As I cover in my book, it’s easier for some people to get thigh gaps than others (although anyone who is determined can get one in a healthy way). Men included possess thigh gaps if their hips are wider and legs are on the skinnier side. They also tend to hold their weight in their stomachs as opposed to their legs, which as it turns out is more dangerous for your health but easier to lose.
I’ve also had a lot of male customers who have used my protocols successfully (Hey, guys like skinny jeans too).
Here are a list of well known guys whose stems you can totally be envious of.
# 1 Adam Levine –
The Maroon 5 singer and The Voice Judge has a pretty lean frame and as can be seen here in slim fitting jeans, is sporting a thigh gap.
# 2 Harry Styles – Member of the popular all boy band ‘One Direction’, Harry Styles, is seen here in a before picture with no thigh and after with slender legs.
His hips don’t look particularly wide to me! If he can do it, so can you!
3. Jared leto –
Fresh off of his Oscar win, Jared Leto has always been a pretty slender guy. Here’s gorgeous, rich and successful – and yup, has a thigh gap to boot. Some guys get all the luck!
