There are two schools of thought in terms of body image: 1) Love your body as it currently stands or 2) Aim to achieve a body that you think reflects overall health. We often realize how far people go in their definition of “health”, pushing the boundaries of human anatomy in various ways, whether through muscle building, thinning down, or adding curves where there once was a flat plain. But, recently, in support of the sign of the times, many individuals are glorifying obesity, stating directly that t the fatter one is, the more beautiful one is, and the better one feels. These folks associate a sense of well-being, almost euphoria associated with eating past the point of fullness, and growing larger by the day. There are always several sides to a story, and it is likely that the “Supersizers” are not addressing the many complications associated with excessive weight like diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, and social stigma, to name a few. In addition, from a clinical standpoint, I believe there are significant physiological and psychological aspects that are driving this desire to be larger than life. It has been shown in animal studies that eating fat releases endorphins, or hormones that create a sense of joy and euphoria. Ironically, however, many compulsive eaters eat to inflict some type of abuse onto themselves in response to trauma, stress, or chronic depression, something we also observe in those with anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, where the strive toward thinness stems from a series of traumatic events quite unrelated to body image in many cases. It is tragic to see how the glorification of the super size is masking what may be truly a psychological condition, and at the speed at which fat and sugar are readily available, there may not even be time for these individuals to receive the support they need.
