Dr. Robyn Silverman on The Today Show Talking about Body Image & Her New Book!

Dr. Robyn sat down with Meredith Vieira on The Today Show to talk about body image, her book Good Girls Don’t Get Fat, and the alarming trends of low body esteem in girls. A recent poll shows that 95 percent of girls between the ages of 16 and 21 want to change their bodies in some way. Even in young girls, low self esteem, disordered eating, and dieting have become more commonplace. Working on behalf of girls and women, Dr. Robyn Silverman is speaking across the country to help them identify their assets, bolster their body image and learn to thrive in a world that values thinness at all costs.
