FACTORS AFFECTING BODY IMAGE MEDIA - Soap operas, billboards, advertisements, movies, TV, mus - Videos, magazines, beauty contests, fashion shows etc. FAMILY - their eating habits, body image, activity patterns, attitudes towards food, comments on appearance etc.

FRIENDS - Peers reinforce each others beliefs about the ideal body, - teens feel a need to conform SOCIETY - Perfect industry, pre-programmed to expect a quick fix, - self-worth is based on physical characteristics SELF-ESTEEM - Develops from birth & continues to be shaped by significa people in their life, personal characteristics add to feelings o

self-esteem HEALTH PROFESSIONALS - Annual physical (height/weight), cosmetic surgeons advertising the perfect body GUIDELINES FOR BUILDING A BETTER BODY IMAGE Accept that healthy people come in all shapes and sizes. Do not compare yourself to others. You are a unique person who has inherited a body that is suited for you.

Define beauty for yourself. Do not let media or others tell you what to think about your body. What the media portrays doesnt reflect reality; there is no such thing as a perfect body Look in the mirror and notice what you like about your body. Be aware of messages your body gives to you and respond to them appropriately. E.g. tired= rest, full=stop eating Remember there is more to you that just your weight or your body size & shape

Live in the present. I you are always waiting to get thin before you do this or that, then you will spend most of your life waiting and not doing or being. Learn to nurture yourself with things other than food. E.g. relax with music Leave the scales to the fish! Do not allow numbers to determine how you feel about yourself. Wear clothes that you find attractive & comfortable. Wearing uncomfortable clothes may cause you to be dissatisfied with your body. ENERGY REQUIREMENTS FOR DIFFERENT

SET POINT THEORY States that each body has a particular weight that it tends to maintain Genetics plays a key role in determining body weight and shape Set point can fluctuate between 5 & 10 pounds and cannot be lowered through restrictive dieting If an individuals weight is below or above their set point weight range, their body will experience physiological and emotional

changes in an attempt to re-establish itself As less food is eaten, a persons basal metabolic rate decreases (the rate at which calories are used by the body) decreases. Food eaten is then used more efficiently in an attempt by the body to defend its set point and to prevent further weight loss There is no ideal weight for those of the same height & age because people have different body shapes and frames
