will improve your mood, leaving your feeling happier and more relaxed. It will give your confidence a boost, and improve your self esteem. So don't be a couch potato! Your Self-Esteem Many things influence your body weight, such as your physical activity level, your self-esteem and the food you eat. Everyone has their own 'average' body weight, but not everyone is fit and healthy, and it may be because they don't exercise enough, their self esteem level is not balanced, or their choice of food may not be healthy. Your level of self esteem is also a big factor in your body image and weight. You may not always become what you want to be, and this may pressure you into thinking that you are too fat/skinny, which may result in dieting or over-eating.
To maintain a healthy lifestyle, you need to feel good about yourself, not pressure yourself into thinking that you need to look and be a certain way. People with high self-esteem are confident of success, feel loved and are content with themselves and their lives (and they usually have a good body image). Low self-esteem can have a major impact on your health, so keep the negative thoughts to a minimum, they have a bigger impact than you think. Your physical activity level has a big impact on having a healthy body. Food Choice Are you a picky eater? If I gave you a choice between a plateful of broccoli and a bag full of Oreos, which would you choose? OR A person's choice of food can affect their health. If they normally choose to eat processed foods packed with calories, fat, sugar and salt, they will have a higher chance of becoming overweight, or, if they prefer to eat healthier foods that are rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber, they can have more control over their body and will have a smaller chance of becoming obese. To maintain a healthy body, you must know what you must eat. For example, you could follow Canada's Food Guide. Broccoli helps fight cancer, especially breast and lung cancer. It boosts the immune system, and is filled with vitamin A, folic acid, phosphorus, potassium, iron, zinc and lots of fiber. Children who watch more than two hours of TV a day are more likely to be overweight. So try to limit your time in front of the screen and spend your time playing outside instead! No, dipping the Oreo into milk will not make it healthy :)
Oreo cookies (and other types of cookies) may contain a small serving of protein or fiber, but they are mainly made up of fat, sugar and calories, so it isn't considered healthy. Media Believe it or not, the media plays a role towards your body image too. Whatever you see on t.v., in magazines or online has a significant impact on you that you may or may not be aware of. It will lower your self esteem which I talked about earlier (psst, your self esteem is a factor in your body weight) when you compare yourself to whatever you see, whether it be a buff athlete or a skinny bikini model, you may be pressured into thinking you aren't perfect.
Body Dysmorphic Disorder is a type of chronic mental illness in which you can't stop thinking about a flaw with your appearance. In other words, you may be unhappy with the way you look or see yourself. A flaw either that is minor or that you imagine. But to you, (if you have this illness) your appearance seems so shameful and distressing that you don't want to be seen by anyone. When you are pressured into being insecure about yourself, most people then want to make changes to themselves. For example, a girl watching t.v. sees that all the models in the ads are skinny, and she starts worrying, so she stops eating and may get an eating disorder, like anorexia or bulimia, making her unhealthy and underweight. People will also get teased or bullied online about their body image, which again will affect them negatively.
