We all have our own body image hang-ups, many of which are perpetuated by the largely unachievable images in the media of what the “perfect body” looks like.
Therefore, as part of the Olympic coverage recently, the BBC developed an app that helps you compare the size of your body, with that of the Olympians.
Before you shudder at the thought of being compared with these athletic Gods and Goddesses, this app is designed to show what a healthy size is – proving that even most athletes (perhaps except for the teenage gymnasts) are not size 0. All you have to do is enter your height and weight, and it tells you which athlete your body is most similar too.
After all, if we’re going to compare our bodies against someone else’s, isn’t it best we do so against these healthy and inspiring people? Strong is the new sexy, after all.
