The society nowadays has levied immense pressure on the boys and girls nowadays to look a certain way. The beauty standards that are formed by the mindset of the society are unachievable in it’s true sense. Rather, the standards of beauty in the eyes of the so called people of the society are nothing but a reflection what they themselves could not achieve, hence, they try to levy the same thing on young minds which put them under immense pressure and a lot of stress. Nowadays, I have seen increasing cases of eating disorders like Anorexia, Bulimia, etc. These eating disorders are no more a rare phenomena as it is spreading like wildfire. The people suffering from this disorder usually starve themselves to achieve a desiarble body shape and the obsession about it is so much that such people do not even realize that by doing this they are stopping themselves to get the nutrients that their body needs to function and grow properly.
There are many girls who starve themselves to achieve the body they have seen on a model or they have seen on Instagram, they workout two times a day or sometimes even three times, working out so intensely without providing your body with the appropriate amount of nutrients will lead to them loosing whatever fat they have left, resulting in a slimmer figure and toned body. The problem here lies with the mindset that they have grown in or the mindset they have witnessed. It is evident by the advertisements we see or the movies we see, the actresses who are as thin as a stick are considered beautiful,as per the standards. The girls with a thick figure or a voluptuous body is simply considered as ugly or not suitable according to the so called beauty standards.
Being a survivor of eating disorder myself, I suggest every girl to not starve themselves in order to attain that figure, no matter what you do, no matter what you say, no matter what you think, if your body lacks proper food, you will not be able to sustain happiness. Even if you are able to achieve your goals, you will not be happy and would surely want more, you would plunge into this darkness from where coming out is very difficult, I was lucky enough to have a very supportive family and an amazing therapist.
Being a resident of Sacremento, I would suggest that search for a health food store Sacremento as they are the best, gather all the healthy food that you like, plan your daily diet and eat according to the nutrients your body requires. It is a fact that eating healthy and exercising in adequate amount makes your mind as well as body fit. You just have to be careful that no matter what society says, you are beautiful. Thin, fat, dark, fair, short, tall all of this are only labels and at the end of the day, everyone is beautiful in their own way.
