Did you know that you naturally have a more attractive face hidden under that stubborn layer of fat? When you are overweight or obese, you lose a lot of the features that makes your face unique and strong. Take a moment and evaluate some of the prettiest and handsome celebrities, models, athletes, and you will notice that they all have relatively low body fat. Staying lean enhances their face. So if your overall body fat levels are too high, your face will reveal it but in a negative way. A chubby neck seems to blend in with the face while your jaw line and cheekbones are hidden under the extra fat. Not a good thing!
( I will show you what happens to a face when body fat levels are too high within this post)
I Don’t Need Life Insurance…I Need Lean Insurance
I know a lot of people will be able to identify with this because I see it everywhere. I don’t know of anyone that likes it, but so many people carry it. So what is it??? Aaahhh the “double chin.” Having a pudgy face is one thing, but adding the double chin is dreadful. So do you want to make sure you never get that awful face accessory? This is what I call having “lean insurance.” Work to stay lean and fit for the rest of your life will “insure” you from developing a double chin.
Gravity Can Turn That Double Chin Into A Turkey Gobbler
If you continue to allow extra body fat take hold of your body, gravity will eventually have its way with you. Over time the extra fat on your face, neck, arms, belly, legs, etc will sag at an even faster rate. Don’t give it that extra foot hold. Staying fit all year round will help you keep your youthful appearance for a much longer period of time. Think about your high school days! I don’t often mention the college days because that is about the time where most people “blimp out.”

What Women Consider Handsome
Women really like a sharp and angular face. This is created when someone has a strong jaw line, chin, and cheekbones. This square jawed look is very masculine and can be found on those who have low body fat. Even though some people’s features stand out more than others, the principle is still the same. Think about some of the “handsome” celebrities. They indeed have these characteristics. Getting lean will make your face more kissable and not used at the expense of others to pinch your pudgy cheeks.
What Men Consider Pretty Or Beautiful
Women’s faces can also be enhanced when they are at a lower body fat. Models understand this when preparing for a photoshoot. Men like a slim face with dominant features but only to a certain extent. I don’t like it when women enter or train for fitness competitions. It’s impressive in the fact that it is difficult to do and requires a lot of dedication. But let’s be honest, it looks terrible and their face take on a very masculine shape. This is not good for the ladies. If a woman has a more defined six pack than me, I am officially grossed out. End of story! Aim for more suitable levels like Jessica Biel. She is a really fit woman but still has soft and feminine features. Trust me, guys like it.

You Can’t Fool Me With That Face
I don’t know too many people that understand this, but did you know that your face and abs are almost in direct correlation? Looking at someone’s face is a dead giveaway to the state of their abs. If someone has a pudgy face with a blurred or almost absent jawline, I can guarantee you they don’t have a toned six pack. It is nearly impossible to have a chubby face and be in phenomenal shape. This is why I can instantly look at someone’s face and be able to determine if they have low body fat.
Style And Fashion Is Sacrificed With Excess Weight
Whether you have 30-50+ pounds to lose or just 10 pounds, you have a much more attractive face under that fat. Think about some great things to motivate you to lose it. Let’s take style and fashion as an example. When someone is lean they have a certain “hipness” to them in regards to style. They are able to wear and “rock” certain clothes that heavier people can’t pull off. This also goes for hairstyles. Lean men and women can go crazy with their hair and can somehow pull it off. If an overweight person does the same, it just doesn’t look right. For example let’s point out bald guys. For those who shave their heads, a chubby face can make you look like the Potato Head man. Meanwhile, a slim guy with a shaved head can still have a certain “GQ” look to them.

Note: I don’t know how many people know this but I recently shaved my head. That is why I brought it up ahaha. I’m still trying to get used to it but I just can’t believe how cold I am all the time! I think I will have to update my “About” picture.
