Beauty or Health

On TV, magazines, and the internet you see the ideal lady having a slender whistle bait figure . This drives hordes of young ladies looking for Anoretix or some other lose- weight- quick drug. Is beauty intrinsically associated with a slender body ? Or is this a projection of Hollywood's worldview? Why should we try to lose weight? The primary reason should be to keep our bodies functioning right. Our bodies weren't designed to be weigh 300lbs. No wonder we have back and leg problems! No wonder we have high blood pressure! Its all about proper stewardship of our bodies and turning away from a lifestyle of greed and gluttony.
