Some researchers believe depicting thin models does not appear to have a long-term negative effect on adolescent girls but that it does affect girls who already have body image problem. Although, researchers that believe that it doesn’t affect most girls are contradicting themselves when they say it only affects those who already have body image problems because according to National Eating Disorders Association 75% of girls with an average body weight believe they are overweight, which is the majority. Also, 80% of 10 year olds believe they are fat when they are technically not classified as being overweight. T he majority of women are negatively affected by advertising. Advertising has been proven to increase eating disorders in women.
The powerful words in magazines are usually next to pictures of thin, beautiful models and celebrities. Studies by the Body Image and Advertising Association found that over 50% of advertisements in teen girl magazines and 56% of television commercials aimed at female viewers used beauty as a product appeal. Every young girl in the world obsesses over her physical appearance. The beauty ideals have changed over time. For example, by the 1950s, many adolescent girls considered Marilyn Monroe the ideal of beauty.
Studies show that women feel very sad, hopeless, and empty. Some women also may feel anxious, lose pleasure in every day things, not feel hungry, and may lose weight. Other women may feel more hungry and gain weight, have trouble sleeping, and not be able to concentrate (WEBMED). Most of the women are ashamed for feeling lost and fearful for their child. Postpartum blues can be due to imbalances in women’s
There is always a low self-image body against women by media. The media is too much interested in about how the women would look in thin body. There are so many advertisements where the women’s body is very thin. Women begin to believe that they can never add up to the shown models in advertisements. This can lead to many eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, over eating and bulimia.

Jillian is underweight and excessively exercises and this may be due to the perception of what is considered physical attractive (Ginis & Leary, 2006). Personality rating on body weight of non-exerciser negatively are stereotyped based on the belief of “healthism” known as those who do not exercise are “weak, deviant and without virtue” (p. 987). This belief originated from a study conducted on Canadian and Swedish students and generalized in the 1970s within American middle class female as negative stereotypes associated with those who do not exercise. It is culturally influential to the perception more so than positive stereotypes associated with exercising (Ginis & Leary, 2006).

They too can be used in excess and can lead to severe health problems. On the silver screen you can see rail thin actresses, that society has come to see as the precipice of true beauty.

Like any other teenage girl in America, I also loved to read fashion magazines, and I would see these gorgeous models that were so thin and pretty and try to exercise and be like them. Our American society does not realize how much of an influence the media has on teens; and as a country we need to address this issue for what it is: The self esteem of our next
