Outrage, disgust and amusement are all apt reactions to the variety of controversial takes on body image featured. From flawless, Photoshopped celebs, to obese pets and pro-anorexia advertising, it's apparent that while the world is ever-changing and we are evolving, body image is still a hot topic among people of all demographics.

While there is a concerning obesity epidemic in North America that people like Jamie Oliver are trying to battle, there are also women (and men for that matter) who can't seem to lose enough weight in order to be happy. Many of these people fuel the booming beauty, fitness and vitamin industries.

A healthy attitude towards body image is something society has yet to perfect and these controversial takes on body image look to push to the boundaries of what's acceptable.
