Some internal and external situations make achieving the body we want challenging. For example, genetics limits the anatomy and sabotages your aspirations as soon as you neglect them, nor can the operating room change reality. And it's not bad, so you shouldn't be overly concerned.  


Want is not always power. Don't be fooled that there are no limits; there are. And it's not because of the money, which also puts restrictions. Mother Nature gave you anatomy that you can chisel with diet and exercise, but only to a certain extent. It's not always possible.  


Neither the latest in medical technology nor the best surgeon nor the most seasoned expert's training plan will guarantee you the fitness body everyone seems to be craving lately. You can get in shape and turn all your effort into good health, but chances are you can forget about reaching the canon of beauty imposed in gyms. It's not like you're sweating for nothing. 


Body beauty stereotypes 


If this article had been written in the 1980s, the male ideal would be Rambo or Arnold Schwarzenegger. Today, however, beauty standards have changed. Today's male beauty standards are related to defined muscles but without the hypertrophy of that decade.  


Achieving these standards seems more straightforward than it is. These results require a lot of consistency and a balance between strength work in the gym and high-intensity cardio. Bodies with greater muscle mass, such as those of CrossFit athletes, are also prevalent. These bodies are strong and very marked, but at a great distance from a body, worked in the volume of any bodybuilding competition. 


Among women, the canon has shifted from skeletal anatomies to a fibrous slimness that is undoubtedly healthier. In the gym, they look for defined and muscular bodies like some sportswomen, dancers, or yoga teachers. Specific strength training is required, but without excess, to obtain these results. Just enough to define.  


Next, more weight is given to corpulent muscular anatomies, such as 'CrossFit' athletes. There is more intense strength work here; we can see powerful quads and biceps, well-developed buttocks, and a well-defined six-pack.  


Healthy but very pronounced leanness is seen in long-distance runners. They spend many hours doing a cardiovascular activity at medium intensity and burn much fat without generating a large muscle volume. However, today it is still a regular canon of beauty for models and television actresses.  


Difficulties to have the body of your dreams 


The causes that prevent you from having the body you want can be multiple and complex. This situation can generate frustration and is the result of a combination of causes and factors that contribute to a body you do not want.  


It is generally accepted that the cause of obesity is an energy imbalance between calories consumed and calories expended through exercise and activities of daily living, whereby the body stores excess calories as fat. 


  • Age


As you get older, hormonal changes and a less active lifestyle contribute to the onset of obesity. 


  • Female sex


Mainly associated with pregnancy and menopause. Obesity also occurs in women with polycystic ovary syndrome, an endocrine condition that prevents proper ovulation. 


  • Unhealthy eating


In the last 50 years, there has been a universal tendency to eat foods rich in fat, salt, and sugars. 


  • Sedentary lifestyle


There is a decrease in physical activity due to a sedentary lifestyle due to automation of work activities, modern means of transportation, and increased urban living. 


  • Sociocultural factors


Obesity is associated with a lower educational and income level linked to limited access to recreational facilities and a lack of money to buy healthy food. 


  • Behavioral factors


Some behavioral factors such as food consumption, smoking, and alcohol intake. 


  • Genetic factors


Some genetic studies have determined that obesity may be inherited by genes influencing the amount of body fat and its distribution. 


  • Specific medications


These medications include antidepressants, anticonvulsants, steroids, antipsychotics, diabetes medications, and beta-blockers.
