What I got from this post us basically you need to be thin enough for him to think you are hot. Pretty useless advice here. There was no actual mention of being physically able. Just looking like he thinks a fit person should look, with no empirical measure of actual fitness.

Fairly typical. Women should focus on being healthy (indulging in healthy habits) for their own rewards.

Pretty much. I mean, if you read a few of his blog entries it basically boils down to; have long hair, be thin (look fit, though that really doesn't matter as long as you look like you work out) and in one entry he says to NEVER say no to sex and work on your 'acting' skills if you're not interested and just ignore the pain if it's painful.

I really don't think this guy is anyone worth emulating to be honest.

Not necessarily. if thin means virtually no boobs, it doesn't = hot for a lot of men. Men prefer some extra weight if it results in some curves on top.

How many men would have sex if it were painful? How many men would have sex if they weren't allowed to have an orgasm? The expectations men have of women are bizarre. But we digress...

Decent men should care about the woman's health if they want to spend their life with her. Whether it's because she's severely overweight, an alcoholic, smoker, drug user, gambler, etc etc etc if she has bad habits that could shorten or affect her physical condition later on in life why not help her out now? This applies to both sexes.

And this article mentions nothing about health and wellness.

i get what he's trying to say, but a womans desire to be skinny has very little to do with what men think of her. its more about other women. also he's pretty ignorant on the subject of eating disorders, but most are so i dont find that to be wildly offensive or anyhing...only that its annoying that portrays himself as some sort of expert

What's with that?

Is it completely out of the bounds of possibility that thin people might have body-image issues? Or are we nowadays only concentrating on the feelings of fat women and their insecurities?
I notice this also. That blogger doesn't address it because he likes thinness.

In the comments, he tells someone that the BMI of a typical actress or supermodel* is probably going to give you the ideal look. Most of them likely have very low BMI (not saying anything about health as BMI is bogus for that, IMO; but it may be too low to be healthy for MANY women), and they would be considered too thin by many men's tastes.

I say this as a thin woman with low BMI who is quite sure I am "too thin" for many men. I'm not boyish or bony or unshapely, but I'm still thin, and everywhere you go you have it pounded into your head that thinness is somehow "unwomanly". Women rave over my body, and I quite like my own figure, but it has not won me tons of male attention (perhaps blessing in disguise). The more voluptuous women are the ones always complaining of "too much attention".

* He likely doesn't mean high fashion, but swimsuit/lingerie models - the more shapely ones.

This guy makes a classic mistake many men make - projecting their own individual taste onto other men, as if it is some kind of universal standard.

Men who are into giant boobs do the same thing - can't fathom other men not into them & label them gay if they are not or in denial or "whipped" or some other degrading label. Men into thin women think men who like larger ones must have a sick fat fetish & men into larger women think ones into thinner women must really like boys or underage girls.

It's odd to me how much men want/need to create some objective standard of beauty by which to measure women (ie. rating with numbers); I suspect it's born of treating your partner as a trophy, a sign of his own personal value. I wonder how much more varied men's individual preferences might be if not for that, in addition to some major conditioning via the media (especially porn & men's magazines).
