What does it mean to "eat normally"? Most girls nowadays are starving themselves, but look lean and healthy!

In brief: BMI: keep it 22--26.

The BMI is a very useful as a guide to help determine if u r eating normally.
Yes, there is enormous pressure for women to stay thin, and there is no better way than to starve. To be a successful model, it is close to impossible to be 'normal'. Arm size on tv appears 10% larger than actual: look at their arms. Interesting that 3/5 of americans have a BMI over 30.
