Ideal Body Type thread? Anonymous 1672[Reply]

What's your ideal body type, anons?

Are you into being thin, or curvy, or maybe fit? Were you born a cone shape but long to be a pear? Or maybe you're a banana but would rather be an hourglass?

I'd like to hear your opinions and what you're doing to get there!

me toooo :( I find it's something that only I notice on myself though. I kind of like the look of them when I'm naked/in my underwear, but hate them in clothes.

I think I have a pretty unfortunate body shape. I got kinda out of shape in the past few years but even when I was skinny and physically fit I've always had these kind of weirdly shaped hips, kind of like Kate Upton's, that look like muffin tops. On top of that I have, while not very deep, still pretty noticeable hip dips. sucks

Off-topic but that's not the right bra size for her, right? Am I wrong in thunking her breasts look awkward the way they're bunched up over themselves?

Anonymous 16906

>many women of our land, if they had seen her features, would feel embarrassed for not having theirs look like hers.
That's projection.

Anonymous 16907

Yeah. Usually men only think if one person is attractive than the other can't be. Women don't get insecure from other women being beautiful unless men purposely put them against each other


Any ways to supress your appetite? Anonymous 16845[Reply]

I've been eating a bit out if control these past few days and I notice myself eating because I feel like it and not because I'm actually hungry. I used to just eat when hungry. I'm not sure what exactly happened. It makes me uncomfortable and I notice myself snacking on unhealthy foods more. I tend to cathegorize foods as bad/good even though I should know better that it's more complicated. I've heard that apparently unhealthy foods do something to your insulin levels which makes you hungrier than you should be? I'm not sure. Are there ways to supress your appetite? I don't want to end up eating bad either but I'm not sure if I can stick to a strict diet because of my social environnement. I've tried waiting it out but it doesn't seem to be very effective… sometimes it works and sometimes it just doesn't. BTW not an anachan.

I have the same problem and I'm trying to stop it because it's a big dent on my finances. Unfortunately part of it is self-control but doing these have made it easier:

-Drinking coffee (with milk idk if it matters), caffeine is known to help suppress appetite, I also like to drink tea too (rooibos is my personal fav) because warm beverages can ease hunger
-Drinking diet soda (yeah it's unhealthy, but it's optional)
-Drink water
-Eating protein rich foods like protein bars and yogurts (I can't cook, but if you can lean meats like chicken will definitely be good too). Protein rich foods are known to be sating and keep you feeling full for longer period
-Apples, I find them pretty sating too

Anonymous 16900

Forgot to add on the protein part is be careful to not overdo it though, especially if you've been diagnosed with any kidney problem. 0.8 grams per kg is enough, even less if you don't actively workout.

Anonymous 16902

TYSM for the advice nona <3 i will be sure to try!!!

All good advice besides for the diet soda part. At least for some people.

NTA, but all protein powders are processed foods and are basically empty calories. Eating protein powder is just like eating white sugar or lard, except that the macro you're getting is protein rather than carbs or fat.
Whole food sources of protein are better because they include fiber and micronutrients.

you do 100 push ups in a row?!

Anonymous 16889

I started bodyweight training again! Right now I'm doing a very simple routine of lunges, push-ups, planks. I want to get some bands so I can start doing rows. I'm 163cm and around 49kg. Trying to build muscle overall.

Anonymous 16893

Great, starting is always the hardest step.
Now try to be consistent and it will slowly become easier.
Also if you do bodyweight exercises get pull up bar if you have a solid door frame. It's really useful for home exercises.

Anonymous 16894

I did them in sets (I think of 10) with short 30 second rests.

Thanks! Just did day 2 today. The house I live in now is extremely old and I don't really trust the doorframes. But when I eventually move out I'll look into a bar or at lesst do the sliding towel trick (sadly don't even have space for that).


Question from a fashion noob Anonymous 16890[Reply]

Why is it that some fashion trends look bad on me but some others fit me to a T?

I love alt fashion with fishnet tights, lots of black and dark jeans and edgy prints, but I just can't pull it off. The Instagram Baddie style, for example, also looks bad on me, like I'm just playing dress up and stole the clothes from another person. It doesn't scream "me".

Anyone else have the same problem? Does it have to do with Kibbe body types? Face shapes? Are there any unwritten rules that fashion noobs like me should know about?

Anonymous 16891

you likely have softer features and should play into it more. if i wore the goth ig baddie makeup & clothes i'd look absolutely foolish bc i have an oval face, big round eyes, a round nose, and generally softer features. you skin's undertones also may not suit black/cool colors. it's generally a combination of things

Anonymous 16892

Could be the colours that don't look good on your complexion, could be the clothes that don't work for your body type, could be a matter of lacking confidence, could be a combination of these factors.

How can I lose weight without physical activity? I hate sports and gyms and also a vegetarian. Is there hope for me(can do hard diets) or should I just start puking my guts off

Cut out sugars. If you don’t consider walking as a part of sports and gym, I suggest just walking more. Doesn’t have to be intense just try walking to your destination if possible or go on a simple stroll after dinner. That’s what I did

Anonymous 16873

intermittent fasting and not eating junk food or drinking sugary drinks.
i'm guessing you eat a shitload of carbs from dawn to dusk and drink diet soda or something.

…and I’m definitely not as in control as I thought because there’s a lot of stressful things going on in my life and I want a drink soooo bad. I can feel myself throwing a toddler crying tantrum for alcohol in my head 70% of the time recently.

I need to stop eating sugar. But I'm addicted to sugar.last night I wanted a snack and I didn't realized how much of what's in my cupboard is sugar. My diet is over 75% carbs. No wonder why I am so fat.

Anonymous 8223

Everytime you go overboard with sugary stuff you win a full hour of strenuous cardio each day, pick your choice

Anonymous 8224

Try cutting it out slowly. As you go through the sugary stuff in your house, don’t buy new sugary stuff to replace it with.

I have a huge sweet tooth, too. I know it’s hard.

I started drinking again on New Years. I got to drinking a six pack of light beer a night but had reeled it back in to 3 a night. Then this weekend I went out with my husband, got black out drunk, we had a fight and I hurt him. So now I'm going sober again.


I hate acne Anonymous 16743[Reply]

Anyone here knows good homemade remedies or mixtures for acne? I have it similar to picrel but a hundred times worse, it looks disgusting and it itches. I wash my face everyday with soap but it doesn't get better, i want it gone. Pls help.

>meme advice
Scientific studies have shown that sugar (amongst other foods) can cause acne. There's a reason why acne is a pre-dominantely Western problem, because of our diets. Tribes with very traditional diets of fish and vegetables don't suffer from acne. You're just too addicted to your sugar and would rather slap on 10 products every night than eating clean.

Anonymous 16820


You're right diet can improve acne, but the idea that acne is only caused by diet and people in cultures where they're forced to eat healthy don't have acne is bullshit. Anyone who's ever been to rural parts of Asia, Africa or South America knows this. The thing is, for documentaries or pictures and such they usually don't get that much of a close up to their skin or they simply chose the more photogenic tribal people to document. I would even argue that some tribal people even have worse acne than Americans due to lack of medical care for hormonal problems, lack of clean water and stress from lifestyle

As for older pictures, photoshop existed back then too, it just wasn't as intense as it was today. Even grandma's will straight up admit they had acne in their pictures that was edited out

Anonymous 16821

I tried spirolactone and it worked like a charm and wasn't as intense of side effects as accutane you just can't have lots of potassium

Anonymous 16822


use THIS specific soap. it will be gone in a week. i swear by it.

also, start taking vitamin c supplements + apply sunscreen (preferable with niacinamide in it)

Anonymous 16882

Honestly go to a derm or get curology or something like that. Most over the counter stuff isn't very good at helping acne. Only going to a dorm helped.

Sometimes I trim it b/c I'm bored but I've recently been wondering if, I h=should get like, hair scissors in order to do that rather then random paper scissors. Also, I heard that some women shampoo and condition their pubic hair.

Anonymous 16861

ive not done shampoo because i fear it throwing my ph out of whack and i suffer for two days after getting any soap in that area, but i've done light conditioner washes to no results. maybe if i found the right stuff i would do it more often and notice a difference but i really don't care enough to do it

White supremacy is a thing in every non-white country. Laugh at it, but it's true

Anonymous 16869

Advocating for women to adhere to beauty standards (outside of health and hygiene related standards) is unbased and more cringe than wearing goofy fashion. Women with dark skin are cute and hot in my opinion.

I am neither pale nor dark myself, just a women-in-our-natural-states enjoyer. Any dark women reading this, please take care.

>some styles only fit a certain ethnicity
Absolutely but I'm surprised it took you this long to realize that. You never noticed how Western white girls look awkward in j-fashion? I say this as a white girl myself, most of us are too tall and broad-framed to look good in overly frilly, cutesy j-fashion clothes. That's a neutral statement btw, lots of Japanese girls don't look good in clothes that look ideal on taller white girls.

Anonymous 16877

There are plenty of petite and small-framed girls in Europe, as well as big and broad Japanese girls. It's not about ethnicity when it comes to fashion and dressing yourself well, it's about body types.
