Have you guys actually seen an anorexic person before? Because you don't get abs by just being skinny. You still have to exercise and eat right. Sorry to burst your bubble tubby.

notice that the content said "having abs because you're skinny", not having abs because you're skinny and also work out. so I assume op was referring to skinny ******* who have very little muscle mass as well as fat

To achieve "abs" as seen in the picture, all one has to do is go through puberty and have a fast metabolism. Anorexic have little muscle because their body resorts to eating away their muscles in order to sustain itself. You get abs like that in said picture just from performing basic day to day activities and not eating like a fatty. Not much to it.

Yes. But even someone under average weight (skinny) won't have abs unless they exercise to increase their muscle mass.

If you're extremely skinny (borderline anorexic skinny) but don't exercise, you'll be able to see the vertical sides of the abdominal muscles, be there will be very little definition. To get actual abs (the way most people think of it) you'll need to exercise and increase the muscle mass.

Being skinny helps, but it's only one piece of the puzzle.

That said... **** anyone and everyone who says skinny abs don't count. Fit shaming is retarded as all hell. "You're physically fit but you don't go to the gym all the time to get totally ripped. You're just as bad as being fat," is possibly the most retarded ******** I've ever heard. No wonder obesity is an epidemic, when the only people we'll give recognition are the cream of the crop.

I agree that skinny =/= fit, however it's not unhealthy (unless your anorexic of course). I should have used the word healthy instead of fit in my previous post. Being skinny is healthy. It's not as healthy as exercising and having lots of muscle mass, but it's still healthy.

We should avoid creating a stigma against healthy people and grouping them with unhealthy ones. One of the main reasons anyone tries to stay healthy is the social stigma of being fat. Most people don't give a **** about the health complications, falling to, "It won't happen to me," syndrome. The health improvements aren't immediately tangible, so they're not motivating.

If we associate skinny with obese, only praising the fit, then a lot of people who are currently skinny and healthy will say, " **** it, I ******* love cheetos. Who cares, I'm not fit anyway." and get fat, becoming unhealthy. Obviously this is a very pointed example, but you get the point.

About 2 months ago I decided to start exercising and made it my personal goal to achieve ripped abs and generally gain mass. It's tough, but I'm really seeing results. Eating right and even just working out every other day will put you right in shape. I'm having to battle my annoying fast metabolism, because I'll get like a skeleton in a week if I don't stuff my face every meal and forget to exercise for a few days.

While this is true, I have friends who exercise less than me and they have abs. (I'm an average weight, not fat but not super skinny) I don't think they have abs because they are skinny, but I think it helps a lot.

It helps, but you don't magically get them by losing weight. But, if you're fat, the fat will usually cover up the muscle leaving you with less definition.

I agree with this, but it still pisses me off when girls with stick-figures are like "Look at my abs!"
