"You also referred to the desire for a "perfect body" and suggested that it is a very common LOA intention. Well, if I have a perfect body, how does that hurt or harm you in any way. It doesn't. I mean, it isn't my fault if you wish to feel offended by the superficiality you see in my intention."
You are correct, your having a perfect body doesn't harm me in any way. But if having a perfect body is in your top priorities, it harms you. And it harms people in general if such priorities are encouraged and emphasised.
In any case, having a perfect body among your top desires is shallow and makes you egocentric and, when you are most concerned about how your own body looks, you don't have as much energy to be oriented towards other people as you would otherwise have. No, you can't have everything and be everything. You have to focus and make choices. And if your choice is cultivating your physical body, that choice keeps resources away from your other choices such as caring for other people.
Another psychology fact: eating diserders are correlated with narcissism.
