Who’s “they” Taylor? Because we totally disagree with that statement. You can be too thin. Being too thin has some serious health effects, including death. Looks like you need to stick around for a little discussion on body image, because if you are trying crazy things like that throw-up drink to lose weight, you may be on your way to an eating disorder (which we cover in a different section but they are very closely linked). In this section we will cover:
- what is body image
- the history of beauty
- media influence on body image
- gender differences in body image
- body dysmorphia
- developing a better body image
- bonus YSS: Chris’ s personal struggle
Body image is a huge issue among young teens today and given that you are drinking that throw-up concoction, Taylor, you may just want to stick around and hear what we have to say. You might end up feeling a bit differently about your body… and that drink.
Post question: How do you feel about your body?
