BODY-IMAGE BUILDING

The 20-year-old daughter of Maria Shriver and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger hopes her book Rock What You've Got will help young girls love their looks.

DID YOU HAVE BODY-IMAGE PROBLEMS?

In high school I was really stressed out about it. All of a sudden, I was getting hips and a butt.

DID YOU TRY DIETS?

My friends and I tried every fad diet. A girl offered to teach us how to throw up. It scared us into never thinking of doing that again.

WHAT HELPED YOU ACCEPT YOURSELF?

I talked to my mom, who'd had experiences with her own weight. And I realized it was ridiculous to compare myself to images in magazines.

HOW DO YOU STAY IN SHAPE NOW?

Exercise. My dad and I always work out together.
