A 2007 STUDY PUBLISHED in the Archives Of Sexual Behaviour found that women were more attracted to men with toned arms, bulked shoulders and trim waist that conformed to the ”Golden Ratio”. That means if your waist size has a value of 1, your shoulders should be 1.6. Or, if your waist measures 29 inches, then your shoulders should be just about 46.4 inches.
To achieve the ”Golden Ratio”, you first need to address your diet and lose excess body fat – good abs are made in the kitchen! A simple rule of thumb is, eat when you’re hungry, stop when you’re full, and eat consciously. A few years ago, I contracted E-coli, and it forced me to change my diet, which is a good thing given my age. These days I eat more fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and fatty fish. I have limited my intake of sugar-sweetened drinks and fried foods, and there are no more pepperoni pizzas and Friday night fish and chips. I still drink alcohol, and I love dark chocolate. It’s hardly an ab-defining diet, but it works for me.
