Celebrity Weight: Victoria Beckham’s Thighs, Heart Disease and Premature Death

Thin Thighs Victoria Beckham.jpgJust yesterday, I was sharing with a friend that my greatest accomplishment in life (yes, all of life) – aside from having children (got to say that, right?) – is that I permanently removed over 50 pounds and there is a space between my thighs! That’s right!!!
I no longer house economy-sized bottles of baby powder to rub between my thighs before a summer-time walk! I no longer suffer from thigh ‘chafing!’
Amazing accomplishment, no? Something you can relate to, yes?
Well then, you can imagine my upset when I read this morning that a study conducted by the British Medical Journey of approximately 3,000 men and women between the ages of 35 to 65 indicated that those with a thigh circumference of less than 23.6 inches “greatly increased” their risk of developing heart disease and dying prematurely!
The people at the greatest risk of developing heart and circulation problems and dying prematurely are people whose thigh circumference measures less than 18 inches! And, further – just so you know – there is no benefit from having thighs that are larger than 23.6 inches!
So to those who have 23.6 inch thighs, mazel tov! You’re perfect. To those who measure less than 18 inches, presumably like Victoria Beckham, take heed! As for me, I’m still thrilled with the space between my thighs, and I will continue to exercise, eat healthfully, think happy thoughts and monitor my blood pressure!

  • Your Name

    Well, I thought I was totally weird for being secretly thrilled about that between-the-thigh gap I could finally see in the mirror after losing 156 pounds and after having spent the first 35 years of my life with “thunder thighs” and chafing. Okay, maybe I still am weird, but at least I’m not alone in my weirdness! :-)

  • Your Name

    As long as my thighs are strong to kick the punching bag,and they fit in to my size 9 pants,i am ok.i DO THINK I AM WITHIN THE THIGH CIRCUMFERENCE LIMIT,AND AS LONG AS MY DAD SAYS KEEP GOING,:)I GUESS THAT MEANS MAZEL TOV TO ME,LOL.

    Try wearing wearable weights like “Body Togs” anatomically designed weighted sleeves worn on your arms & legs under your clothes. Put them on in the morning and you literally forget you have them on while increasing your calorie burn, muscle tone & bone density! Also wear while exercising to increase workout. Weighted vests work great too!

    LOL i just don’t believe the news that thinner thighs = bad for health. I just think it’s senseless, or maybe not such a big influencing factor.
