I mentioned Dukan because it is going to hit the States in the next 6 weeks & will invariably be dismissed. 5 million people in France have read it, 1.5 million follow it.... apparently it is imporyant in France to be thin, whereas in America you hear a lot about "healthy". Imo thin, slender, whatever you would call or, is healthy.
Eating healthy is eating CLEAN for me. I don't care what new fad diet is popular in France or Europe...I don't follow fads. I'm not going to load up on meat products or cut out carbs completely, drink a shake twice a day or follow some other "diet" because millions of people are doing it. I'll do what works for me.

Salads are great if they have healthy ingredients but many people ruin them with cheese, croutons, bacon, fatty dressing...etc. I enjoy eating salads when they are made right. I rarely eat a sandwich...I can't choke down that much bread. I don't eat low-fat yogurt (most of them have fake sugar) but I do love greek yogurt which is naturally fat-free.

I don't buy meals in a box (macaroni and cheese, hamburger helper, canned meals...etc), I don't eat fake sugar or sugar substitutes, I don't eat fat-free anything except milk (and it's RARE that I drink milk, I don't tolerate it well). I'll eat low-fat products if they are made with low-fat milk (such as 2% cheese) but I won't eat it if the ingredient list strays from the basic ingredients or has preservatives and fillers.

I cook from scratch most days. I like to control what ingredients go into the food I consume.

What the heck is a fat free cookie anyway? Ever read the label for one? It's all chemicals. If I want a cookie I'll make them at home and have one or two. I can't tell you the last time I purchased a cookie from the store.

And thin does not always equal beautiful just like fat does not always equal ugly. I've seen some very unattractive thin/slender people and vice versa (likewise I've seen the same with heavy people).

For me, beauty is more defined by the persons face, not their body. Just because your body is thin doesn't mean you were blessed with an attitude and face to match it. A persons personality usually shines through in their face...like I said, ugly is an attitude for me and even with a pretty face, someone can look very ugly if they are miserable and scowl all the time.

Eating well is just that.

Overprocessed foods are junk. Fresh foods are delicious.

I do eat a nice salad with my lunch everyday. It just tastes refreshing. I'm picky about my sandwiches, but I like them to be balanced. Yogurt? Greek for me... with freshly sliced strawberries. Now, this is more a subject to discussed in the Diet and Weightloss area... but check out SparkPeople.

I disagree with you on the thin part, but totally agree with you on the fat part.

Here are some thin women who are pretty darn hot:

I think all the smarta$$e$ around here should know that when we are talking about "thin", we are NOT talking about anorexic or sickly. This is the usual response/remark from FAT women or the chubby chaser internet guys who cant get women in real life so they try to get e-reps from the fat women here so they feel they have made a "friend".

Here is a curvy and voluptuos woman who is HOT:

People should remember that:

Thin - is NOT sickly boney or anorexic.
Curvy/voluptuous - is NOT FAT or OVERWEIGHT or OBESE

I agree...I prefer the term "slender" to thin though. It seems to have less negative connotations.

I will NEVER be slender, it's just not the way my body is framed...but I consider myself curvy...okay...let's be honest...overweight right now...after I lose 7lbs I'll be curvy

Just wanted to repost this since it look like a new thread was combined with an old thread.

These are two beautiful CURVY AND VOLUPTUOUS women. That is, curvy by MENS standards which really should be EVERYONES standards.

Guilty as charged. I'll go jump off a bridge now in "Tyler Clemente" fashion.

What kind of person actually results to insulting others simply because they somewhat disagreed with their idea of a beautiful woman ? Seriously, who the **** does stuff like that ? ....SMH .....

Ah, the classic Curvy vs. thin debate. How I love to hate it.

Is thin more beautiful than "curvy"? Well, depends on the girl and depends on the guy.

Guys that like thin chicks should date thin chicks.
Guys that like curvy chicks should date curvy chicks.

Simple, no?

Then again, it depends on what they look like. There are girls who are thin that would look better if they were curvier. Then there are girls who are "curvy" who would look better if they were thinner.

I personally am thin and have delt with criticism from girls thicker girls than me.

Then again, it also depends on what you define as "curvy" and "thin".

It's all based on opinion.
