In addition to this, if the public could view adverts only as something to get one's attention and not a portrayal of how one should look, there would be fewer problems.
The dependent variable, in the Social Fitness Attitudes Scale, reflects the individuals attitude towards fitness in society and in a dating atmosphere.
The higher the individuals score the more they are influenced by society, with a score of 46 being the accepted indication of society influence.
However a low score in the self- acceptance scale in all three groups suggests a low self-concept within all participants.
