Do you ever look at magazines or see models on TV and think “I wish I had a body like that?” There is so much pressure these days to have the perfect beach body (and as a man that means a 6 pack), but will this actually make you any happier?

In this fascinating TED talk, Cameron Russell says “Looks aren’t everything. Believe me, I’m a model.” She shares statistics of a worrying trend that shows how of the 13-year-old girls in the United States, 53% don’t like their bodies, and that number goes to 78% by the time that they’re 17.

Oh, and she also shows what she really looked like on the days when a number of her magazine shoots were taken.
