Body Conscious People Influence Our Eating Habits, Body Image

Parent Interventions

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.
