The Doctors TV Show was focused on the topic of Why Is My Body Changing. They answered all kinds of questions on topics from hair loss to cellulite to changes “down there.” The Drs TV Show were joined by Katherine Schwarzenegger, author of Rock What You’ve Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who’s Been There and Back. 2 out of 3 teen girls are unhappy with their bodies and think they should lose weight. In fact, 40% of first through third graders want to lose weight.
The Doctors & Katherine Schwarzenegger
The Doctors showed a book signing event that Katherine Schwarzenegger did where one little girl asked Katherine how it made her feel when people made fun of her. Katherine Schwarzenegger said that someone called her bucktooth beaver when she was younger, and her mom told her that when someone makes fun of you, it has nothing to do with you. The little girl said that Rock What You’ve Got has really helped her to get through difficult stuff.
The Doctors knows that lots of young girls do not deal well with the pressure of looking good, especially since the media is bombarding women with images of size 0 women. Dr Lisa Masterson said that during puberty, girls actually need a little extra fat to produce hormones and then they will grow out of their slightly pudgy zones.
The Doctors asked Katherine Schwarzenegger if she felt extra pressure having a dad who was Mr Universe. She said she does not feel pressure because she does not want a big muscle physique. She does not want to be her dad, mom or her best friend. That is the whole point of Rock What You’ve Got – to just be yourself and be happy.

Katherine Schwarzenegger said that every day you have to wake-up thinking positive thoughts about your body. Wash off the negative thoughts. A Rock What You’ve Got Girl is confident about her beauty and is beautiful both inside and outside. Always remember, there is no such thing as a perfect body.
