Before and well… before, ish (but with better lighting)

Men's Health Con.Being a bit of a lardarse foody with a job that takes up all of my freetime and a social life as well I’ve never really gone in for the gym, or this ‘perfect man’ figure that seems to be all the rage in the Men’s magazines (a la Men’s Health etc…), but I spotted this image on a forum a few days ago under the heading of “look how he’s toneed up… wow!!” (sic) – and I was, well, shocked; because he hasn’t toned up (despite that apparently being what the article was all about, he’s just been photographed with less white light and more shadows to emphasise the muscles that he already had. Now I know that most magazine articles are a bit of a con; and I know that the industry in general (but especially the Women’s Mags) have been doing this for years pushing ‘the perfect body’, but come on – it’s obvious that this chaps not actually had to do anything at all to get from the before picture to the after picture? I mean I’d love to see them really take your average office lard-bucket and turn him into an adonis? That’d be an article really worth reading, but from Gym Buffed zero body fat, six pack actor/model to Gym Buffed zero body fat six pack is a bit of a pointless read don’t you think?
