Body image is a product of our minds and our imaginations, rather than a "fact." People with positive body images are likely to feel good about themselves and care for themselves in healthy ways. But many people have negative body images, at least some of the time. This book explores where ideas about body image come from, and how body image affects lifestyle and health, particularly for teenagers.
