    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - There's a new trend that Intelligence for Life writer Betsy Chase said is being embraced by women who are fed up with the pressure to look good. It's called "mirror fasting."

    While mirror-fasting, women avoid their reflection, not just in the bathroom mirror, but in shop windows, car rear-view mirrors, and even cell phone screens.

    Chase said that on average, women check their reflection around 38 times a day, though 75 percent of women surveyed by "Behavior Research and Therapy" said they hate looking in the mirror.

    Some psychologists, according to Chase, don't think mirror-fasting is a good idea because it likens to crash-dieting, where you end up obsessing about food.

    What do you think? Could you mirror-fast?
