Description

This study investigated the effects of visual adaptation to over-, under- or neither over- nor under-weight images of women on perceived own size, in 18 to 25 year olds with high body dissatisfaction. Healthy adult women (n = 93), with normal BMI (range 18-25 kg/m2) and high baseline body dissatisfaction, were randomised to be visually adapted to photographs of women, altered to appear either over-, under- or neither over- nor under-weight.
