Hollywood is full of endless unrealistic beauty standards that make many celebs feel like they aren’t good enough. As a result, many people choose to go on diets, which can bring on symptoms of eating disorders as well as other problems for mental health. There is no denying the fact that the culture of dieting has become extremely pervasive in today’s generation.
