Abstract

This study explores body satisfaction, body change strategies, and perceptions of media messages about body change strategies among Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian adolescents. Despite perceiving fewer media messages about weight loss, Indigenous adolescents engaged in more body change strategies (losing weight, increasing weight and increasing muscle) than non-Indigenous adolescents. Possible explanations for these differences are discussed and the need for further research is stressed.
