Think You Know What Someone With an Eating Disorder Looks Like? Think Again


When you think of someone with an eating disorder, you probably imagine a woman who’s shockingly skinny and frail. As this powerful video proves, that stereotype is not only false, it’s harmful. Hearing “you don’t like look you have an eating disorder” could send the message that you don’t need treatment or should try harder to really look the part. Plus, as the two guys in the video point out, many people overlook the fact that millions of men struggle with eating disorders too.
