I personally would never have plastic surgery because when I look at myself, I do not see a tall, skinny young man with a funny looking nose and big "bug" eyes, rather I see a beautifully sculpted masterpiece that God has made just for me.
As a result of these body images projected by the media, men and women have encountered physical problems, including bulimia, anorexia, employment of harmful dietary plans, low self-esteem, and depression.
Unless reality is discerned from what is presented in certain media, some people will continue to suffer.
This research sought to assess the attitudes of high school students towards fitness and body image in the presence of different physical media icons.
By monitoring the individuals response to both a third person scale and a personal scale, true attitudes can be assumed.
However a low score in the self- acceptance scale in all three groups suggests a low self-concept within all participants.
This supports my statement that there would be a connection between the fitness concept and the media packages as well as a constant self- concept maintained by all participants.
The Media and Body Image Abstract This research examined the media and how it affects fitness and body image.
This was assessed by collecting data from surveys taken by three groups of ten high school students, five of each sex.
In this study, the different groups were the independent variable, here in described as Group A, those exposed to the thin images, Group B, those exposed to athletic images, and Group C, those exposed to no images or the control group, whereas the groups score was the dependent variable.
The surveys were distributed to thirty students, ten in each group, five of each sex.
