From the article:
"Despite our media’s seeming reverence for size-zero models and ripped muscle men, it may help people suffering from eating disorders and other body-image problems to know that such body “ideals” are not exactly ideal after all."

Sir Mix-A-Lot had all this figured out 20 years ago.

I had a social psychology course many years ago. It took me about a week to realize the experiments proved a) what was already obvious, or b) had no application beyond the confines of the experiment. I called it a course in So-called Psychology.

I don't like the sound of this. It gives overweight women an incentive to ensure that their men are stress out.
