Throughout history the image of the ideal man has changed, during the Middle Ages, it was a sign of wealth, if you were “heavy”. In present times the ideal man looks more like a sculpture. But is that really what women desire?
This is where evidence of the amount of beer consumed during the winter months is visible. Not to worry, research now shows that your beer belly is something you should, in fact, be proud to show off.
It seems women actually prefer men with more stomach as opposed to those that have a sculptured belly.
As ridiculous as it sounds this study has been proven by researchers at Yale University. According to the very same study, a man’s attractiveness is also enhanced if he is slightly older and has kids.
Researchers claim this is more to do with evolution. Men’s natural appeal increases when they have offspring as this indicates their fertility to women, according to the findings of the study.
According to Richard Bribiescas, a professor at Yale, there is a biological explanation for why women are more attracted to men who prefer to stay at home on the couch rather than going to the gym.
Men with more body fat have more focus on their family, according to the very same study. “This change in body composition not only causes men to shop for more comfortable trousers but also facilitates increased survivorship and, hypothetically, a hormonal milieu that would more effectively promote and support paternal investment,” says Richard Bribiescas
Additional studies also prove that men with an increased fat mass around their stomach, are less likely to suffer health conditions such as heart attacks and prostate cancer with their decreasing testosterone levels.
As a direct result of this combination the chances of him finding another woman are reduced.
