Haha, yup definitely.
That poll that Halo Effect linked to is really helpful for giving guys a more accurate picture of what girls are actually attracted to. I've seen so many like it before, and they all say the same thing; a slim to medium build with 8-12% body fat is the most attractive type. If you're worried about appealing to the 'majority' of women, aim for that.
The thing is, a body type like Zyzz's is extreme, and extremes are always going to be noticeable because... they're extreme.
This is a huge part of dating in general; if you don't look closely it seems like the majority of girls are sluts, that the majority of guys are miserable AFCs, etc etc. But if you open your eyes a bit, you soon realize that the majority of girls don't have that many sexual partners in a life time, and that a small minority skew it. Or that most guys are actually pretty happy with a lay every now and then, plus a few solid relationships over their lifetime, and that there are other parts of their life they consider to be more worthwhile of spending their time worrying about.
Mark had an article on the old site called 'the silent majority' which went into detail on this. Mark; I suggest you rewrite it, because I remember it was pretty transformative for me when I read it.
Anyway, going to back to worrying about what body type is most attractive; it doesn't really matter. Your genetics are going to have such a big say in it, it'd take you years to become anywhere near as bulky as Zyzz if that's not your natural body type. In that time there are so many other things you can work on to make yourself more attractive to women.
Yeah you should stay healthy, work out, and try to get a more muscular frame. These things will all help you. But worrying about looking like Zyzz is a huge waste of time, and will undo much of the benefits of the aforementioned things.
