There Is No Such Thing As The Perfect Body (VIDEO)

Every teen who struggles with self-confidence should watch this blunt, powerful video about body image from YouTube star Boyinaband.

In the post -- which is part of The 4:01 Show -- Boyinaband blames the media for promoting unrealistic images of so-called "healthy" bodies, and calls out pop stars like Chris Brown who promote unattainable standards of beauty in their music. He also explains that getting the "perfect body" is not physically possible for everyone.

"A lot of it depends on your DNA and how that effects your mental and physical attributes," he warns. "With a wide variety of tastes, your body is probably someone else's perfect body."

The 4:01 Show is a YouTube channel dedicated to creating a support group for "teenage humans" and they try to upload posts every Wednesday at 4:01 pm.
