Images in Magazines and On Television Increase Body Dissatisfaction

Clearly these folks would not be dissatisfied with their bodies in the absence of magazines and TV.

But, if you are dissatisfied, stop whining and do something about it.
Adolescents who read magazines and watch television contents that deal with the concept of image prove to be unhappier with their own bodies. Girls are more susceptible to experiencing a lower perception of their physical appearance. Body dissatisfaction is linked to the type of content that is consumed (diet, beauty, health or music videos) rather than the frequency of exposure.
"Body dissatisfaction is NOT linked to the type of content that is consumed."

"Body dissatisfaction is linked to the NUMBER OF CALORIES that ARE consumed."
