Studies have shown that teenage girls who starve themselves to become thin are just trying to fit in the circle. Girls from about 7-12 years old are at peer pressure risk of developing a negative body image that can lead to eating disorders, drinking, acting out sexually, suicide and bullying- all affecting self-esteem.
“It’s a beautiful heart, not a perfect body, that leads to a beautiful life”. Quote By Stephanie Nielson. A least 5% of boys and girls suffer from eating disorders. Girls don’t feel comfortable showing their body in front of other females even with a thin body because they get picked on or bullied for the size of clothes they wear.
