From the past, we didn't have much food to fill our stomach, and we intend to eat more whenever we can. Nowadays, even we have bountiful of food supply. We just want to make our stomach empty, or less filled. Because women have to keep their figure nowadays. They sign up for gym; they reduce the amount of meat consumption; and they intend to eat less. What a big opposite.

It seems I should follow your example. In the past months, with a lot of sitting in front of the computer, I am gaining weight. Eating less is the first thing I can think of, and more exercises to lose weight to become my former self. A tough way to go, but I am determined.

There's just a lot o f pressure from parents to the media to peers and to society about how a woman should look. I think this is why. You are right about that though, over a 100 years ago, if you were somewhat a bit chubby you were considered a great catch and gorgeous. But now, it's the far opposite.

well you can eat as much as you want and still keep a good figure as long as you exercise.. people should exercise daily for health rather than appearances

Very good observation, though applicable only in certain countries. Some women in lesser developed countries are still so poor that they grab hold of any chance to eat and eat. Over here, in Singapore, we have many ladies from Indonesia and Philippines working as maid for the Singaporean household. Their duties generally include taking care of babies, young children and the aged folks. Many of them come from poorer provinces in their countries, and they do have enormous appetite. They eat 3 to 4 times more than us (office workers). After a few years, they gain so much weight. From being underweight to overweight, but they are not too particular about the weight gain. Once they return to their hometown, they have to exert physically and not able to enjoy bountiful food supply.

First off starving yourself is the worst thing to do if you want to loose weight. try changing your diet. Eat healthier. less portion sizes, and 2 snacks a day, don't skip a meal. Those are some basis. Diets don't work. Ages ago we didn't really have less to eat we just ate properly, but now with a vast majority of fast food restaurants and easy prepared food we have forgot how to eat properly. As for gym memberships, I think everyone should have one. I am fortunate enough to work at a gym. Years ago we were more active so we didn't need things like gym memberships, but nowadays people aren't as active, so it's almost a necessity. It's just changing our living style, getting enough sleep, activity in our lives. Think of it that way.

Women is become more conscious with themselves. I'm also eating less because I want to lose weight. For the past 2 months I gained weight I can't exercise because I have prolonged menstrual bleeding. So right now I want to lose weight to overcome my hormonal imbalance . What I do I limit my food intake and I'm I begin to exercise. There's nothing wrong if we eat less, the bad thing is if we don't eat anymore that's bad.

In this society,woman with nice figure r considered beautiful,so keep fit is the most important task for women.But they have little time to work out,they have to eat less to keep their nice figure.On the other hand,eating less is not all bad,eating less at supper time is good for ur health.

I wouldn't know if other women are eating less or not. For me, I know that I eat a lot but I also have a very high metabolism and I am very active. I couldn't care less how much I weigh ( 5'8", 118 lb) but I do care about the foods I take in. I pretty much cook everything myself and I buy from farmer market so I know that the fruit/vegetables will not be processed and full of pesticides. There are places in the world where weight is important for either slim or plump individuals. I fell that if the food will not negatively impact a person's health then eat a decent amount but never eat until full. Stomach stretching is unhealthy.

We eat less may because of that we want to keep kit. However, lack of excercise still make me get fat. I 'd better go exsercise more rather than eat less.

woman nowadays are very concern with their figure. this is because of one's pride to be accepted to the society. they think that when they have extra fat in theri body they are already ugly. im not that fat, actually im trying to get fat. i eat too much. 5 times a day, full meal. but my metabolism is really active so i don't really get that fat. of course eating too much is also bad, but woman of today should be more concern of their health. especially this is our asset to do whatever we want. figure is not really the main thing in the community. it's the mind and ability how we express ourselves. fat or thin won't matter if you have the brain and ability...

Yes women are eating less nowadays, as women get older their bodies don't burn calories as fast so if they eat the same amount of food that they did when they were younger they would just get fat. I have recently had to cut my food intake drastically to get back to my pre pregnancy weight of 125. The expression she eats like a bird is becoming true for more and more women.

Hi there! In my opinion it's because women nowadays are more health conscious. It's the 20th century already and people are gaining more knowledge through continues studies and improvement in technology. To me it's more of a big improvement and changes in lifestyle rather than the opposite. It's a healthier change. Ciao!

eating food less than what is required by our body is dangerous. but again, its a fact that the food we get these days are all canned and tinned foods which again causes obesity. chicken and meats are injected with hormones to make them fleshy thereby when it enters human body it activates our hormones faster. thats the reason why these days even small kids look older than their age. again if we go for fruits and vegetables alone, they are also injected with medicinese which are harmful to our body. so to be precise, now a days, its really dangerous to eat and not to eat. so people are in a dilemma as to what to do..

perfect figure - a girl with a beautiful figure
Hello freind the only reason behind remeining empty stomach is that now adays women are more consicous about their perfect figure,no one like to be fat,so in order to remain slim amd trim we just avoid eating much.
