I'm sure it can indeed be helpful. Some pals of mine in London did some elegant reseach, also, showing that people with eating disorders have a distorted self-image, and tend to see themselves as wider, heavier, etc., than they really are. So any process which helps us to get this bias against ourselves, corrected, should help. What we se in the mirror tends to be what we expect to see ; so if we change the expectation and interpretation, we can change what we see.
