Study shows size zero girls 'less attractive'

size zeroOne recent research has suggested that young men find "normal" sized women more good-looking than size zero celebrities. In addition, researchers also found that size-zero people are often associated to unhealthy look.

The survey was conducted by involving male students at one popular university, they were asked to rate female faces for attractiveness and health. Girls with an average weight and build were ranked as being the most attractive and healthy as the result of the study.

The research was performed by a team from the university; they asked 84 female students a variety of questions about their health, also took their blood pressure and take pictures of them. These pictures were then shown to a group of male students who were asked to rate them for health, and attractiveness.

According to the study, people in the normal weight range were judged healthier and more attractive than under or overweight individuals. This should be a clear message to young women, who believe being underweight is considered to be attractive.
