Summary:
Many teens feel pressure to lose weight, often resorting to diets that don't work and may even be dangerous. Program exposes myths promoted by commercial diet plans and why their advertising claims are false or misleading. Viewers meet an anorexic teen who reveals how images of pencil-thin models and actresses in the media affected her self-image, prompting her to try a series of unhealthy diets. A registered dietician demonstrates the importance of good nutrition, emphasizing healthy weight-loss strategies incorporating moderate portions of nutritious food combined with daily physical activity. Program concludes with teens of different body types emphasizing how a healthy body is more important than the unattainable 'perfect' body often represented in the media.
