Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

In today's world, people view the western states beauty ideal of thinness. Women may get the pressure to become thin, as this is perceived as the way of becoming perfect, since slimness is associated with success and acceptance by women.  Images communicated through mass media such as televisions and other social medias are unrealistic. people may become obsessed with achieving the ideal image, striving to look like the celebrities whom they see on televisions or magazines. This is likely to cause eating disorders, as eating is perceived as a contribution towards ideal image creation.

Some culture tend to suggest the masculinity of men, ideal men are viewed to be masculine and therefore eating too much is viewed as a way of gaining masculinity, this culture broods eating disorders.
