I've been blogging for awhile and I feel ALL nationalities are not only concerned about the food they eat, but also the products they use and proper exercise.
I would like to know from YOUR culture's perspective (whether you're asian, white, black, hispanic, greek, jewish etc.) how HEALTH and BEAUTY is viewed? Is it frowned upon to gain a lot of weight? Is it important to be a certain size? What does your culture perceive as HEALTHY or NOT HEALTHY? What does your culture view as BEAUTIFUL or NOT?
Or how is HEALTH viewed where you LIVE? What's it like in Europe? What's it like in Miami? What's it like in Asian countries? Did you face any stereotypes growing up? Share your thoughts in my comment section.
I thought the exercise spread was really cool (pictures featured below). I thought the pictured featured with the red X through it was a little disturbing. The title of the article was "no! no! NO!" Are they saying not to eat? or maybe it's about food disorders? Maybe an Asian reader can chime in for clarity.
So what is YOUR culture's view on HEALTH and BEAUTY? Any stereotypes?
Has it changed from past to present?
