BEING ‘ RIPPED’ DOESN’T MEAN FIT
What a wonderfully relevant article (“Body slamming the weight loss industry”, 15/4).
The pursuit of a ripped body, while wonderful, must be measured against what’s achievable. I can remember a few years ago looking in the mirror to say, wow I’m ripped.
I must admit that to be ripped was not my intention but a result of my lifestyle.
I have been ripped many times over the past 60 years. I have also been very un-ripped.
I am concerned this article is giving people permission to be so un-ripped they become obese, which is so very unhealthy and costs not just the obese person, but the entire community.
The message that needs to go out is, you don’t need to set the gym on fire with your attendance and activities, but just eat healthy and exercise moderately to maintain a healthy body and mind.
