Can most women achieve "ideal" bodies through diet and exercise?
Stuart Linder, MD, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, answeredThe concept of the ideal body is highly individualized and relative. Each woman has her own perception on what the beautiful and or proportionate body is. Those whom are truly significantly above their ideal body weight may attempt diet and exercise. Unfortunately, both genetics and increased age with hormonal changes may make it impossible to lose excess weight.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
