Body Conscious People Influence Our Eating Habits, Body Image

Our body image and eating habits may be influenced by the people whom we interact with. If they are pre-occupied with their body image it will have a negative impact on our body image and also eating habits, according to a new research study.

Kathryn Miller, a PhD candidate at University of Waterloo who conducted the study with two others did a survey of 92 female undergrads in the age group of 17-25 who spent time with body-focused as well as non-body focused people for seven days. Spending time with non-body focused people prevents disorderly eating and also improve our self-esteem.

Most often we have a tendency to compare with others when it comes to appearance and body shape. The new study underscores the importance of spending time with people not pre-occupied with their bodies to improve our self-esteem.
