“If you’re fat and pudgy, make yourself lean, sleek and smart.” Are we to assume that fat and pudgy goes with dumb? Or does the author mean "fashionable"?

“…its going to take practice to make boys like you. Take it easy. Set out to make yourself worthy of a boy’s affection. Just one boy—any boy…” Any boy, and then dump him when you want to move up. Life is short, and you may get fat and pudgy.

John F. Ptak

I'm inclined to think IQ, but I believe that the author intended a fashion statement. It also means I guess that you can't be fashionable unless you aren't "fat and pudgy".
