Why You Will Never Look Like Megan Fox

Wondering how much work it'll take to look like her?

No matter how hard you train, no matter how clean your diet, you will never have Megan Fox’s body.*

Why? Because you are not Megan Fox. (Unless of course, you really are Megan Fox, but I’m assuming she doesn’t read my blog.)

People’s bodies are just as individual as their faces. Even Megan Fox’s sister — if she has one — doesn’t have the same body, even if they come from the same genetic pool. Why, even twins have some differences in the way they look. So stop wondering “why don’t I look like her?” Because you won’t, not even with any amount of diet and exercise.

So should you throw in the towel now and resume a sedentary, junk food-filled life? Of course not. You first have to appreciate the fact that you may not have a Victoria’s Secret model body, but you have the ability to make your body the healthiest, best-looking possible.

One of the most common sentiments I hear is “I just want my stomach to get smaller.” Unfortunately, it’s up to your body to decide where it wants to let go of fat first. If it’s in your genes to store fat in the belly, or as in my case, in the hips and thighs, a thousand crunches or leg lifts are not going to do you any good.

It’s frustrating, I know. But perhaps some of the expectations we impose upon ourselves are at times, unrealistic. No one really beats themselves up over not having the exact same fingernail shape as their favorite celebrity. The same should hold true for body shape.

*For the record, I think Ms.Fox’s body needs more muscle tone, but because of her current popularity, let’s just use her as a point of reference.
