Boys want to muscle up - at age six

Body dissatisfaction starts at a young age, a Australian study shows

Body dissatisfaction starts as young as six in boys, with one-third wanting to be more muscular, an Australian study has found. 

The 101 six-year-olds in the study were asked to look at five figures of young boys whose bodies ranged from average to very muscular. The boys then had to pick which one they looked like and which figure they’d prefer to look like.
