This is hard for me to post but I feel like it is important. I remember hating my face and hating my skin and looking at all the girls around me in middle school and on tv and in ads and feeling like I was a monstrosity in comparison. But I remember the first time I realized women plucked their eyebrows. And wore concealer. And foundation. And powder. I felt like I had been lied to about what women look like. After modeling and realizing when photographers asked for no makeup, they really meant the photo on the right. I started realizing that the photo on the right was what was in skincare ads and posted by people claiming in the caption to be wearing no makeup some of the time. The photo on the right is the bare minimum of what we expect women to look like when they wake up in the morning. I think makeup can be empowering, but I think that acknowledging that it isn’t natural is important. Modeling and wearing makeup so often makes me especially feel like its important to sometimes be uncomfortably honest about how much of the media we consume is altered in some way. Part of me wanted to wait until my skin was better to do this concept but I realized that was totally missing the point. Thanks for taking the time to read.Photography and Graphic Design by Mark Laubenheimer.

The Science of Weight Loss!!!

If you guys are getting sick of these things, let me know. I just think they’re mad interesting…

Retrieved via: Infographic Journal

2 things that stand out here: the emphasis on whole grains for weight loss and that BMI is somehow better than weighing yourself? Plenty of diets, including mine, include very little grains and no gluten. Now, you don’t HAVE to eat gluten free, but from research I’ve done, gluten and grains are usually the cause of people gaining weight, especially in their mid section. Paleo diet might be extreme for some, but I believe it has a great foundation and many people should attempt to adopt it, maybe 70/30. Now for the BMI, weighing yourself only takes into account your weight. Doesnt tell you your muscle mass, doesnt tell you about your health, and neither does BMI. BMI is worse, in my opinion, because it gives you a number that you then compare to a chart and see where you land. Many muscular, fit, healthy men and women will score an “obese” rating because of how much muscle mass they have in relation to their height. There is no specific range of weight for men and women. You can look up a chart of “ideal” weights but none of them match up. That being said, it should go weight, measurements, then body fat percentage. But other that those few things I think this post has good points!
