When most women look at their butt, some see a beacon for attracting men, while others see a deformed lump of clay that seems to make men run away faster. For myself, I find I leap on both sides of this fence, depending on my monthly cycle and how many macadamia nut chocolate chip cookies I’ve eaten that day. But according to researchers, your butt may be a lot more than just a sex accessory you either have or don’t have. It may be an important cue to what you need to do in order to not only look your best, but also feel it.
Do you know what the healthiest butt shape is? It is round.
What Your Butt Says About You
A round butt means that your body is storing fat evenly around your glute muscles, which not only looks great in almost anything you wear, but it also means your organs are likely lean and functioning optimally. While the heart-shaped butt may be one of the most desired by some women, the kind of fat that tends to hang low in the cheeks is also the kind that meanders to your mid-section as you age. What you get once this fat transfer starts to take place, is a bit of a triangular butt. This means that those original fat stores in the cheeks are traveling upwards to your organs where they will redeposit themselves in all the areas you don’t want, like around your vital organs. And if you happen to be the owner of a square butt, this often indicates that you are just in need of glute and core exercises to get those upper ‘love’ handles to lay down and obey.
Your butt is actually so much more than most women give it credit for. It is a great indicator of your health, and it is easy to improve with a clean diet and proper exercise plan.
