Body Image, Healthy Diet and Young Women

ID-100202620

Numerous young women link their body image to self-esteem. With peer pressure and social influence they often tend to drift with the wave of wanting to look “thin” like models on TV or in magazines in order to feel confident and to have a sense of belonging.
It’s very important for young women to love their body and never compare themselves to others; but above all, they should never link food & dieting to emotions. The purpose of dieting ought to be for a healthy living and not for image.
