Men and body image are usually not associated with each other. More and more we hear about the issue of photo shopping women’s bodies to make them look thinner or in some places bigger. There is a lot of media attention on just how ridiculous the body proportions are supposed to be for females aspiring to that ultimate goal of beauty and really acceptance in society. But what you don’t hear very often are the stories of men who struggle with the same issues of body acceptance. Those men who you’d never assume even think about body image. Brian Cuban talks to Shelly about his experiences with anorexia and bulimia and how he overcame those eating disorders with the right support system. His book, Shattered Image, recounts his life story.
