The message is clear: body image problems are largely a function of glamour media and the impossible gulf between real kids and the latest media sensations. Includes interviews with teens recovering from eating disorders along with interviews with regular kids who are comfortable with their bodies even though they don't fit the glamour stereotypes. Emphasizes the important of healthy diet and daily exercise can help wipe away those body image blues.
