Mind The Thigh Gap!

Thigh gap is the latest young women obsession. What’s the thigh gap? This is the noticeable space between your upper thighs when you stand with your feet together. Teen girls are influenced by “ideal” (photoshopped) women in the media, they starve themselves to look like those women.

Doctors and nutritionists are very concerned about the phenomenon since this physical feature do not have anything to do with diet or calories burned. If few thin adults women have slender legs and happen to have a thigh gap, fight against nature and morphology is a lost battle.

Indeed, the thigh gap is a preteens physical feature. This is the result of body changes by the time wider hips and pelvis coexist with childhood thighs.

This obsession became a barometer of success in our teen’s mind. Teen girls are proud to post and share their thigh gap on social media. I even found a wikihow website with stupid crazy tips on getting a thigh gap involving recommendations to take birth control pills.

I never and won’t ever have a thigh gap and that’s okay since I don’t plan to become a Victoria’s Secret model or cast as SpongeBob stunt double.

Eat clean and exercise… do not worry about the space between your thighs girlfriends.
