165 Chapter 6 Review 1. Analyzing Influences. Many factors, including media messages, influence body image. Identify the three factors that you think have the greatest effect on a teen’s body image. Explain what role you think each factor plays in deter- mining body image and whether the effect is positive or negative. (LESSON 1) 2. Communicating. Your friend Amy confides that she maintains her weight by alternating periods of fasting with eating large amounts of food. After eating, she vomits to rid her body of the food. Amy says that this practice is not harm- ful and helps her control her weight. Write a script describing what you would say to Amy. With a partner, role-play your scenario for the class. (LESSON 2) 3. Accessing Information. Use reliable online and print resources to find information on at least three dietary supplements known to have harmful side effects. Make a two-column chart that lists in the first column the health claims the supplement manufacturers use to promote their products and, in the second column, the potential side effects of using or abusing the product. Ask permission to post your findings in the weight-training room at your school. (LESSON 3) Registered Dietitian Are you interested in the special nutritional needs of athletes, older adults, or pregnant women? Would you like to help others make healthful food choices? If you answered yes, you may enjoy a career as a registered dietitian. Registered dietitians use a variety of skills in their jobs. They must be critical thinkers to analyze eating habits. They must base their nutritional advice on sound science. Good communication skills are necessary. Registered dietitians must show sensitivity to people’s needs, cultures, and lifestyles.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
