Feminists and advocates of fat acceptance often dismiss a fit body as an "unobtainable beauty standard" but what exactly is unobtainable about it?

I understand there are exceptions. Without steroids, you'll never look like Arnold Schwarzenegger. And getting a low enough bodyfat percentage to have a six pack isn't easy either, but these are the extremes.

"Hard to obtain" is not synonymous with "unobtainable". What's worse is how low the bar for "unobtainable" is set. Some consider simply being not fat as "unobtainable".

Is a fit body an unobtainable beauty standard? Or are people just making excuses for their lack of self control?

First of all, not all Feminists think so, and not all culture around the world think so.

Whether is it unobtainable are really depends on the individual body, their willingness, and their physical and mental health, Of course, some of them may not obtainable, and some of them can be obtainable. Some may think they are not obtainable but actually are obtainable if they have better willingness. But it can be hurt for some people if their physical or mental health are not "good enough" to handle such challenge.
