Overall summary by brennan ibata
How a positive body image can effect you life
A positive body image will mostly have a positive image on your life. If you have a positive image whether you are healthy or not it will have good effects on your life. A positive body image means that you like the way you are, you will not go to extreme measures to make your image better, and you will be more motivated to stay the way that you are. This means that you will still be taking just the correct amount of nutrients you need to stay the same and you will not take in more or less than you need. Having a positive body image also means that you think of yourself as individual and you have more self-worth.

How a negative body image can effect your life.
If you have a negative body image it will have mostly negative effects on your life. These negative effects mostly come from you not liking the way that you look and wanting to change it. Having a negative body image can lead to horrible eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia. Anorexia is when someone has a fear of gaining weight and bulimia is when someone eats a lot then tries not to gain weight by making them self-throw up the food. Some people may over exercise to lose a lot of weight quickly or they may overeat to gain weight quickly. If you have a bad body image then you will also have more risk of being depressed, having low self-esteem, and/ or having anxiety.
Negative body image narrated summary by brennan ibata
This is when a person eats a lot and gains weight very quickly. This can be harmful because they might not be hungry and they will still eat therefore gaining a lot of unnecessary nutrients which is very unhealthy.
This is when someone first binges and then purges. This means that they first eat a lot and then they usually force themselves to throw up or sometimes exercise excessively so that they do not gain more weight.
With this eating disorder you are afraid of eating and gaining weight so you will starve yourself because you are never happy with you weight.
