Why don't more women look like this, and when will said women realize that good health=attractive

you can't tell from a woman's weight or appearance if they are healthy, and that is the whole problem.
You can only say that women that are severely underweight or morbidly obese are probably not healthy.
Anything in between is a mystery, only the doctor knows.
People with bmi's between 18,5 and 25 get heart attacks, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and other "fat people" associated problems as well.
But I do not want to trivialize your well meant compliment, I do agree having a healthy weight is probably best and damn well attractive.
At least, if that is what you meant.
You also can't tell a womans weight by looking at her.  I, knowing a ton about human biology, can usually make a rough estimate by looking at a picture.  Also posture is important, as well as facial expression.  And yeah, there's a pretty thick line between healthy weight and non healthy weight.

"You also can't tell a womans weight by looking at her."
I didn't say, claim or suggest I could. But yes, I agree.

"Also posture is important, as well as facial expression."
Important for what? Are you talking health or attractiveness?

"And yeah, there's a pretty thick line between healthy weight and non healthy weight."
Um, are you agreeing with me? I have to, regretfully, say that I do not fully understand the term of "thick line" because english isn't my first language and haven't heard the term in use before.

Anyway, a lot of women use makeup in a way that can mask "signs of unhealthiness"  like unevenness in the skin, dark circles or bags under the eyes, small sores, dry skin, red patches of skin, premature wrinkles caused by tanning, restricting calories or smoking too much, grey skin, sparse eyebrows and last but not least uneven features/lack of symmetry in the features. 
But you probably know all of this already.

My point is that the model is wearing makeup and you can't tell if she is healthy or not. (not that you can with 100% certainty say she is healthy if she were barefaced, but that is not the point). 

My other point is that, If you were to be more precise, you probably feel that "looking healthy/healthy looks= attractive", even if you still feel that "good health=attractive".
Didn't have to read this to know it's invalid.

Go ahead and ignore science why don't you.
