Slim People Make Friends Feel Fat


American sociologists have found that the self-esteem of modern women greatly depends on the environment. An overweight woman is aware of the problem only in case her friends are much slimmer.

Dropping weight

If all people surrounding a woman cannot boast having a slim figure, the woman does not feel plump.

Moreover, according to observations, conversations between female friends also have an effect on their body image. If a female company often talks about a diet, exercises and medication methods of weight loss, then all the participants of the conversation have lower self-esteem regardless of their weight. Researchers recommend that women should not discuss weight in public in order to avoid this situation.
