EATING DISORDERS

Leave a comment

I found the Eating Disorders reading to be very informative and at the same time very disturbing.   I had no idea that there were so many different eating disorders.  I always thought that there was only anorexia and bulimia.  During this reading I discovered that eating disorders take on many different forms, such as muscle dysmorphia and anorexia athletica.  The reason that I found the reading to be disturbing is because of how many people eating disorders effect.  We hardly ever hear about people who have eating disorders but the fact of the matter is that they are everywhere.  The person sitting right next to you might have an eating disorder and you would never even know.  I found it interesting that bulimics actually maintain a normal weight and that you normally cannot tell that a person is bulimic.  After reading this passage I think that eating disorders should be paid much more attention than they currently are.  People need to know how devastating these disorders can be.  Maybe if this were to happen we could save some people’s lives.
