According to a new study out of Ohio State University that contradicts a TON of studies that came before it… when women see skinny photos in magazines, it actually gives them a temporary BOOST to their own self-esteem.

-The reason is that the women feel temporarily INSPIRED by the photos… it gives them hope that they’ll be able to attain their dream body one day. It especially happens with women who are dieting at the time.

-There’s a big downside though: After that glow wears off in a few days, many of the women feel more disappointment than before, because they’ve set themselves up with unrealistic expectations.
