Sample text

Foreword How did it come to be? How is it possible that nearly 90 percent of adult women in our culture want to be thinner, and year after year the female physical ideal becomes thinner yet? Why are so many men more worried about their apparent muscle mass than about the quality of their character? How did it come to be that we find it harder and harder to live inside our own skin? The acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) model applies to a wide variety of human problems because it targets common core processes in psychopathology and psychological health.

Our guess is that it won’t take long. The Western society in which we live offers plenty in terms of food available. However, we also live in a society with a daunting ideal of beauty. That ideal dictates that bodies should not only be increasingly thinner but also have less body fat and more muscle, a reality that, for most people, is impossible to achieve. We face a difficult dichotomy between food that is hard to resist and an ideal body image that is hard, if not impossible, to achieve. When did we humans begin to evaluate the body, and how did that evaluation acquire so much importance?

Specifying the relative impact of these contexts on body image satisfaction versus dissatisfaction is complex, and it likely varies by individual (McKinley, 2006). However, body image dissatisfaction impacts a wide range of individuals, both women and men, including those with subclinical levels of disordered eating and those without eating disorders. Consider these questions: When was the last time you heard an individual remark negatively about his or her body? Was it last year? Last week? Was it today?
