An alarming number of teens today - both girls and boys - feel dissatisfied with their body to the point of engaging in unhealthy eating behaviors that can be life-threatening. From trying fad diets to binge eating to suffering from bulimia or anorexia nervosa, disordered eating behaviors affect not only physical health, but emotional and mental health as well. It also negatively affects family, friends, and supporters of these teens. This video teaches teens about balanced eating and how the body, especially at their age, is negatively affected by dieting. It also exposes media-glorified body images as unrealistic and dangerous, and addresses the dangers of stereotypes.
