Abstract

The perception of "ideal" body image is developed over time and may change during the course of one's lifetime. Some current influences on the development of ideal body image are explored. Resources are provided to assist the formation of realistic body images, thus increasing self-esteem and hopefully decreasing the rise of eating disorders due to body image dissatisfaction
