Distorted body image (also called negative body image) refers to an unrealistic view of how someone sees their body. You begin forming your perceptions of your body’s attractiveness, health, acceptability, and functionality in early childhood. This body image continues to form as you age and receive feedback from peers, family member, coaches, etc. Personality traits such as perfectionism and self-criticism can also influence the development of a negative internalized image of your body.

Body image can either be positive or negative. According to statistics, body image especially among females has been largely negative. Befort and Rickard (2003) stated that women look to others for evidence of their competence more than did men, and therefore more easily influenced by all types of feedback.

Dieting only helps you lose your self-esteem and energy. Dieting also creates mood swings and feelings of hopelessness.

They can affect women and men of all age groups, from a range of backgrounds and from different cultures. Contributing psychological factors may include: low self-esteem.

Negative body image usually involves a difference between how someone thinks they should look, and how they actually look. People are influenced by family, friends, their peers and mass media. Anyone can be affected by negative body image – men, women, children, teenagers and adults. It can also be unhelpful to be around people who are overly concerned about their body image and engage in weight loss dieting and talking about their body in a negative way. There are certain personal characteristics that can contribute to someone’s susceptibility to developing negative body image. These can include: perfectionism, black and white thinking, low self-esteem, as well as a person’s age, gender, sexual orientation and culture.
