Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Today in the United States, we have become a society so worshipful of bodily thinness that millions suffer to attain 2 it - some even to the point of death. How did we get this way? Fear of obesity appears to be deeply ingrained in our society as a result of the cultural preoccupation with obesity and the value placed on being slim (Herzog, Keller, Strober, Yeh, & Pai, 1992). Television and magazines promote the goal of thinness with regard to both beauty and health. Love, happiness, admiration and wealth are closely identified with a slender form (Clark, Feldman, & Channon, 1989).
