The celebrity trend for size zero has been criticised worldwide for encouraging women to starve in secret.

This film explores the impact the trend is having on real people living real lives.

From Kellie who is striving dangerously to achieve the skinny look, to Victoria who feels that her natural size zero frame is a poisoned chalice, this film exposes the contradictions surrounding women’s perceptions of size.

        Being a natural size 0 is completely acceptable. People who abuse their bodies to reach a size that is unhealthy for their frame, that is “disgusting”.

    I think that the media does have an affect. Young impressionable girls get a distorted view of what you are suppose to look like. They equate success with being a size 0. It’s not the only factor but it is one of them. We should be promoting self esteem in young people(not just girls), so they will feel good about themselves no matter what size they are. I don’t think it’s¬†much easier for Victoria either.

    • Exlindsanaut

      If being a size zero, or xs, naturally, means being subjected to constant criticism, strangers constantly commenting on how tiny or petite one is, is a success, then it is only a success for the jealous people who chose to judge us. It is no success for my self esteem to have my genetics judged by the public or attributed to the media. I have never called a curvy or even an obese woman fat. Yet being short and skinny means I must have a disease…while obesity continues to wreak havoc on many lives in the form of diabetes, heart disease, etc.

    i have been super thin all my life. I used to be super self conscious and wouldn’t leave the house in anything but sweatshirts and sweatpants even in summer. I was picked on and called names my whole life. Im 27 now and i have let go of that low self esteem and feel great about myself and my weight. But you are an idiot. so size 8 is more beautiful than a size 0?? right. you are ignorant and judgemental. And in almost every encounter i have had with women who say stupid crap like you are really actually jealous. Yep i think i look good not because i am a size zero but because i have a healthy sense of who i am. Clearly you dont cause you are saying such negative BS about those who are smaller than you. WAKE UP. we all look differently are sized differently. who are you to say whats ugly and whats not? You are disgusting, ignorant, judgemental, and clearly insecure or you wouldn’t talk so much shit.

      So… you’re saying that a size 0 is more beautiful than a size 8? After being bullied all your life I would think you would the most likely of people to appreciate any body type.

      i feel like you’re being judgmental. Coming from someone with an eating disorder, it’s not like I want this. I feel like shit everyday when I think about the kids who are dying of hunger, when I don’t eat for days out of choice. But the thing is, it’s not a choice. you wont understand unless you have/ had an eating disorder or you’re close to someone who has had one.

    You’ve got to realize that bulimia and anorexia nervosa are mental illnesses. ¬†These people cannot eat, they cannot gain weight because they are mentally ill. ¬†They need psychiatric treatment. ¬†Even then, it is very hard to get well again. ¬†These are serious illnesses which kill and you don’t help someone who is ill by nagging them.

    I can’t believe what the blonde woman who is with that jerk was saying about wobbly bits and having no self¬†discipline. Obviously you haven’t bared any children!!! I was an Australian size 8 (I think it’s a uk 6) before I fell pregnant and put on close to 40 kg during my¬†pregnancy..Although I have lost the majority of it through hard work I still have ALOT of jiggly bits due to my skin being stretched so much that will only be improved (and never corrected) with surgery. Even though I don’t look as good I am healthier because I am forced to eat right and¬†exercise. CLEARLY A DUMB BLONDE!!¬†¬†¬†

  • Odessa

    In reply, this might be a ‘mental disorder’..indeed it is..just not one that existed before our society became so incredibly vain. Bulimia- while a problem later, begins with wanting to be thin and sticking your own finger down your throat to achieve this. These people are happy and willing to do this until it backfires on them ( no pun intended) and the body refuses the food the stomach automatically..then we call it a disorder. The disorder here is that these woman are vain..plain and simple. I’m sure there will be a new disorder out soon called botox-oria or some such thing.,

    • Sieben Stern

      I’m not convinced it’s completely vanity – I have a guess that it’s connected to OCD and hyper-focusing disorders like¬†hand washing in misophobia and¬†hoarding – only the people focus on their bodies. ¬†Compulsive starving themselves releases body image anxiety. ¬†

      We have issues these days due to the prevalent images in the media of unreal, hyper fantastical people that are airbrushed and tweaked then presented as convincing reality. ¬†This was not an issue when you only had stone carvings and copper plate printed images, and even oil paintings, as they weren’t photographs – they were one step removed from reality.Women can’t step out of the house or go to shop for groceries without seeing the¬†juxtaposition¬†of cooking magazines and hyper thin airbrushed fashion ones creating the image of what a perfect woman is. ¬†They’re probably been faced with these images since they were children, standing in line at the store, which makes it normal. ¬†For those with even the hint of mental illness this can start a chain reaction and a hyper focus on the body, possibly triggering body dysmorphic disorder.

  • Netsirk

    In high school I did a lengthy research project on the affects media has on eating disorders, and in college I did a speech/presentation on the subject as well. There is no doubt in my mind that the media portrays a glamorous lifestyle for those who are thin, and anyone who is bombarded with that perception will be affected by it in some way. I can speak from experience, and my original interest in the matter was spurred by my own insecurities. I am 5’2, and recently gained about 5lbs for what reason, I don’t know. I used to be 98lbs and was happy with that. Something about being over 100lbs really bothers me, and I’m working on getting back down. But, it’s not about attracting a man. My boyfriend thinks I’m beautiful no matter what. It’s all about me and how I see MYSELF, and what I feel is comfortable. I can’t stand feeling fat hanging over the top of my jeans. It makes me feel incredibly unhealthy–so I can understand where Kelly is coming from completely. The only difference with me is that I am not starving myself. I am trying to eat healthier and exercise more often.

  • The_duke_of_facts

    What one person likes should not be a standard for all. you like what u like and i like what i like and anyone with a working brain should sort it out for THEMSELVES. 
    I think people with BDD have the same problem as people with anorexia and to me it stems from an ideal image that maybe a few like. The people that buy into the ideal image and judge others off it are probably more screwed up in the head than the people with the disorder. 
    Its not just the media its the sheep that perpetuate this fictitious paradigm. If more people were awake and thought for themselves the only power the media would have is mere suggestion instead of definite answers.

    • Amybaby

      Maybe it would end the war if we all stopped calling each other “fatso” and “skinny bitch”. As long as you are/got that way naturally and healthily its not an issue.
      Besides, if anyone judges anyone else on looks, size 0 or size 10000, than they are shallow and their opinion shouldn’t count anyway.
      Size: WHAT THE HELL DOES IT MATTER!?!

  • Rosebud

    I’m thin as well and I dont feel that people should be judged for any weight. ¬†Someone further down in the comments said something about the guy liking size 0 might as well be marrying a skeleton, I found that really offensive. ¬†I’m naturally the way I am and I love me for me. If i was size 8 or size 12 or whatever and I was healthy I would still love me. ¬†But I don’t feel like anyone should say that one size or another is superior or if your skinny you’re terrible or if your not you’re terrible. ¬†Any size that is healthy is beautiful, if you can live a normal life and do everything you want to then celebrate! ¬†Don’t knock on other people for things they can’t control, everyone has a natural weight that their body tries to keep them at. ¬†Most people find it hard to either gain or lose weight because their body knows what weight it should be. ¬†There is a saying that says,”treat others the way you want to be treated” don’t go around telling people how they should be when they are naturally like that. ¬†If you want others to respect you then respect them.

    I’m 5’8 and currently weigh 115 lbs. In my last year of high school, I started a new medication to prevent seizures and lost over 50 lbs because it makes me so nauseas. I literally have to force myself to eat so that I won’t lose any more weight. I just don’t feel hungry. Most meals end with me gaging and choking down as much food as I can. If I could gain 20 lbs I would, but the truth is, it’s not that simple. I stopped exercising and actually cut back on fruit/veggies in the hopes that I could gain a little weight and after two months I only had gained five pounds.

    People would never call someone fat or comment on how curvy a woman is, but they see nothing wrong with telling someone they are too skinny or commenting on how little they are. Trust me, I am just as self conscious as anyone else, and my weight is constantly on my mind. At every single meal, I wonder if someone is going to assume I have anorexia if I start gaging half way through my sandwich.Unfortunately, being judged and called anorexic is better than having seizures on a regular basis.

    • Guest

      “People would never call someone fat or comment on how curvy a woman is”?¬† Seriously?¬† Whenever any celebrity gains a little bit of weight, it is all over the media.¬† People call other people fat all the time.¬† I understand that it is really upsetting when other people judge your appearance but for the first time since the 1800s, think women are being judged as well.¬† It is unfortunate that society deems it necessary to judge a woman’s body thin or thick, but welcome to the club.¬†

  • AJ

    We should never say that thin women are more beautiful than thick women. We should never say that thick women are more beautiful than think women. We should never put down one body type merely to allow the other to feel better. It is unfair.

    We should accept the fact that beauty isn’t an objective quality. I am very thin. People have made remarks about it – unkind and kind alike. It is my natural size, however. I have a boyfriend who finds me very attractive. After many years throughout high school and seeing several “Real Women Have Curves” ads that have made me feel insecure, I am finally accepting my body type.

    Seriously. We need to stop with the putdowns.

    Scared of eating popcorn! That’s really scary! Anorexic women are all self-obsessed. The girl who got the most air time admitted to being happy that time she did something for a cause outside herself. These women need to be forced out of their skinny bubbles and into the real, wide world. For starters, their boyfriends need a good kick for promoting the problem or for putting up with it. Second, the fashion designers need to be tuned up by some strict laws. Good film for giving exposure to a problem, but without even one suggestion on how to fix it. And more explanation should have been forthcoming about how some women are thin but healthy. Victoria seems to be a case in point.

  • Miakat

    I had an anxiety disorder when I was younger and shrunk to a size 0, not because I was deliberately trying to be thin, but because I was too nauseated to eat. The amount of attention was unbelievable – men twice my age would ask me out and comment/leer in the street, and women would hurl abuse and even throw things at me from cars.

    Ironically, I later developed an autoimmune thyroid disorder and am now slightly overweight even though I eat healthily and exercise. The lesson here is, dont judge, because you dont know what is going on behind the scenes. It would be wonderful to live in a world where we were judged on what is on the inside! If you dont have your health, physical beauty means nothing.

  • Emilytheginga

    Personally I think this Martin guy is a complete idiot. He’s obviously got his own body issues that he’s pressuring on his partner, the fact that he was happy that she got so sick and got down to her un-natural weight disgusts me.

    For me I don’t mind what weight people are, it’s a personal choice, I only think it becomes a problem when you life is in danger or it has severe effects on a person’s everyday health. I am a size 6, and I am 19 yrs old. I have tried for the past two years to gain weight, as I have become very susceptible to illness and other medical problems. I can’t even hold down a job. That’s the point where I believe the lack of body wieght you have become a problem and that’s where I disagree STRONGLY with this Martin Moron…

  • Victoria

    The thing that’s truly disgusting are the people that think size zero is not a ‘real’ woman. Some women, like myself are naturally very skinny. It is nearly impossible for me to gain ‘fat’ without giving up my life style- things like my martial arts (which is quite a lot of exercise) or going myself until I feel sick. I’m also not very tall about 5’2, so 89lbs (yes, I did say 89, and I am quite self-conscious about that) doesn’t look like nothing on me. But yes I am a size 0 or 00, and I am ‘real’ and it is quite natural. Yes, I’m aware that my weight may not be exactly healthy, but if you saw my mother, you’d understand that I genetically predisposed,and that my only hope is gaining muscle to bring it up (which I’ve been striving for) :) *end of rant*

  • Juci_Shockwave

    Martin (the superficial a-hole) isn’t much of a looker himself so who is he to judge. His teeth are gross. Anyways… documentaries like these make me think of what Ron White once said in his comedy act…

    “But if I could give advice to the planet, it would be: Don’t marry for looks alone, going either way, and I’ll tell you why. In a few years, if Barbara’s boobs start to sag too much, there’s a place where you can go to just lift them right back up to where they were, and they can move the nipple wherever they want ’em. You can actually go to a titty bar, pick out a set of titties and say, “I want those titties on that woman right there.” If her belly gets too big, and she doesn’t want to work it off, you can go get a tummy tuck, and they’ll give you a belly that looks like a cheerleader. If your eyes go bad, you can have LASIK surgery, and they can give you 20/20 vision at any age. If your hearing starts to fail, they can put a device in your ear that’ll make you able to hear as good as you could the day you were born. But let me tell you something, folks: You can’t fix stupid. There’s not a pill you can take; there’s not a class you can go to. Stupid is forever.”

    This is so true…so just be whatever size your body feels its best and encourage your mind to do all of the work out. Success isn’t a weight or size but what is in your mind and how you apply it. Btw, this goes for women and men who are either underweight or normal or overweight… it’s about what your body wants to be. :)

  • Miss.

    I believe that everyone (full sized and thin) should learn to love themselves. Once you get to that point, you will understand how to help others with their self esteem. Our media has brainwashed us to the point of unrealistic goals of how we should look, feel, and sometimes act. Learn to love yourself and you will also learn to appreciate all the positive things this world has to offer as well. ūüėČ

    I am 5’3 and a size 12/14 on the bottom and a 10/12 on top (UK sizes). I have never been thin because I love food too much. I have also never been with a man who was bothered about my weight. Biggest I have been with my current partner is a size 14/16 and he fancied me all the same. I could never eat as little as these women do, I would just be thinking about food all the time. I would also worry about not being able to have a baby. It’s important that I am a Mum, and sometimes when women get that thin their periods become less frequent all together. Sure they look nice, but the effort is just too much. I admire their will power, but it’s not a lifestyle I would feel happy with in the long term.

    Size 10 here – why am i the biggest chick watching this ?
    Because we’re all watching it because we have a fascination (no matter what you all say) with being thin , with Size 0s . We ARE all affected by our society , personally i think that all sizes between unhealthily thin (which can range dependant on bodytype) and unhealthily fat , whether curvy, slim, muscly, pear, apple, hourglass are beautiful . However despite feeling that way for other women i cannot say that i find myself beautiful , i have thighs that rub together – AND FITNESS GUY ! EVEN ALOT OF SIZE 8s DONT HAVE A THIGH GAP – and i am covered in a grabable sheath of untoned fat but i wouldn’t care about my size if i didn’t have Severe Atopic Exczema – noone sees exzcema as serious and yet whether you’re a size 18 or a size 0 i bet none of you get as many funny looks as i do . noone looks at you and thinks you’re contagious . noone avoids being too close to you .

    Gee, I wonder why Martin got divorced…

    Hahaha Martin you ugly fuck.. You have ideals for girls which would mean they are sick.. just because you were fat you’ve gotten abnormal ideals and have become fixated with weight.. you should be concerned about your partners health instead of look/weight. You superficial stupid man. It’s obvious you still have very bad self-confidence.. Besides that, if you think girls should be thin for you you shopuld have plastic surgery cause you’re one ugly fuck. Your girlfriend deserves soooo much better!¬†

    I like how well-rounded this documentary is, and how the 3 different pieces all comment on each other and complement one another very nicely. Martin and Caroline’s cruel ignorance is put to the test with the very sick Kelly, who is a lovely girl and her story is so sad and grisly. Hugo is a great boyfriend/fiance but hopefully he realized that one never really “gets over” an ED, that it’s a lifelong struggle. I feel bad for Victoria…modeling is a shitty business for women. It’s never good enough.

    sorry ladies,but being a fat women is far worse, even when you eat healthy and exercise,if you’re less than super slim,the way people treat you is APPALLING.i have been spat on,pushed over, ignored in stores, given substandard service etc my whole life,just because i am not thin. so no matter how ‘insecure’ you may feel about your naturally skinny frame,at least the world doesnt treat you with contempt.

    Martin looks inbred.

  • Ehh

    Why are you self-proclaimed “size 0’s” bitching about bullying? Unless you lived through the 50s and 60s when having pudge was the social norm of attractiveness as opposed to ribs and collarbones, you really are NOT being bullied. So someone called you ugly because you’re really skinny and tall when you were 13? Big deal, kids have no concept of the meaning of human aesthetics. You KNOW nobody calls you names for your skinny frame after puberty because any girl will secretly want to have your body. Even that skinny model wannabe said it, last she was bullied over her bony frame was before she hit 16. Most boys find girls “icky” before a certain point in their teenage life. I don’t consider myself skinny or fat but am in a healthy and happy athletic medium, but let’s put the tissues down and wipe the runny mascara now – if you truly believe that skinny people endure the same level of bullying as fat people, you’re in huge denial. How many people do you personally know in your school who committed suicide because they were skinny? How many skinny people endure constant over their looks? How many skinny women get refused sex by their boyfriends because “they’re too skinny”? Truth is, our society puts skinny people on a pedestal. Almost any guy will answer the “If your girlfriend could magically drop 10 pounds with no downsides, would you want that to happen?” question would answer “Yes”. If an employer was presented with two versions of you at an interview, one a size 8 and another a size 16 with exact same personality and skills, he or she will choose the size 8 version. Also, nobody is saying that being a natural size 0 is unattractive – it’s the extremes certain addictive personality people go to to achieve the size 0 look that is unattractive. The pills, the purging, the binges, diarrhoea, rotten teeth, the sneakiness, the lies, etc.

      I would beg to differ that you sound to bias your opinion towards the heavier side of this subject. You can’t choose your body frame, but you personally determine your BMI.
