Many people wish to lose weight and look like models for the sake of “fitting in.” The media affects the minds of most nearly all teenagers and adults into feeling guilty about their bodies and do what ever it takes to have that waist-size, forcing them to the extremes of harsh dieting, starving themselves, or becoming anorexic or bulimic. This harsh media takes its toll on many teenagers, the most unstable period of a person's life. Teenagers feel guilty about their bodies due to the media, and how they see themselves.
Jill Stark’s opinion article, appearing in The Age 19th Jan 2008, outlines in a concerned and direct fashion, that most stereotypes seen in glossy magazines have a negative and dangerous impact. She contends that there is a growing trend for woman to produce magazines, promoting healthy and realistic figures, empowering the female. The headline ‘Sick of impossible princesses, real girls fight back’, indicates to readers how fed up the author is with these unrealistic stereotypes. Stark informs the reader that the traditional content of glossy magazines, with “extreme dieting tips and air-brushed waifs in micro bikinis”, is being questioned by ‘real girls’ who are “fed up with images of emaciated models and a celebrity culture pushing them to be thin, sexy and silent.”. Confronted with these images, the reader is encouraged to sympathise with the author’s contention.

Emotional Eating and Nutrition Emotional eating is an automatic process that has become habitual and/or compulsive for some people, and is common. (Macht and Simons, 2011, 4) There are three levels of emotional eating: hedonic, energetic and neurochemical. Hedonic eating is small amounts of food, occasionally, for pleasure. Energetic eating is meals that are eaten habitually. Neurochemical eating is compulsive binge eating, with little to no concern on how the food is prepared, eating quickly, and resulting in loss of control (Macht et al, 2011, 10): Emotional eating can occur in people that are healthy, as well as those with eating disorders.

A large number of individuals develop their body image based on this image provided by the media, which judge attractiveness based on if the person is thin or has the biggest and most tone muscles; thus causing individuals to feel not good enough and causes them to take drastic and unnecessary measures to achieve that body portrayed by the media. Although people think that the media only affects females and their body image, that is not always the case. Teenage males have pressure put on them to be the biggest and strongest, to have the most “cut” abs and to bench press more than the next guy. When a guy sees another guy that is stronger than he is, he tends to feel inferior to that guy. Commercials such as the Hanes commercials show off guys with nearly perfect bodies and make anyone who doesn’t look like him feel like he is not good enough.
