The Fat Fever

Extracts from this document...


Magazine: A Teenage Girls' Magazine Audience: Teenage Girls The Fat Fever A global body image survey of nearly 40,000 CosmoGIRL! readers conducted by the CosmoGIRL! magazine, in the United States of America and their seven sister editions around the world declared that more than 80 per cent of their readers think that they would experience drastic improvements in their lives if they lost weight. Why wouldn't they think so? You have to be conscious about your looks to impress guys. The only thing that guys look for, in you is your figure- 34-26-34 for instance.

Changing the way you think about your body is undeniably not the solution to make your life worth living; changing your body to make your life better is. Almost 80 per cent of Hispanic CosmoGIRL! readers also think so, as they are always dissatisfied with their bodies. Only being wealthy and wise is not the key to the good life; you also need to be healthy! You can maintain your body by going to the gym, playing a sport or even exercising regularly makes a vast difference.
