  • Some people do not have an actual eating disorder; sometimes their eating patterns are simply…disordered. Perhaps they don’t understand how to eat balanced meals or they are just emotional eaters. Disordered eating can develop into an eating disorder.
  • Eating disorders are a very serious illness that can eventually lead to death if not treated. More than 8 million Americans are suffering from some type of eating disorder
  • There are four types of eating disorders. In the next few slides, I will explain each one in a little bit more depth.
  • There are many health risks associated with anorexia. It affects the whole body. To name a few, Heart Failure, Kidney Failure, Low protein stores, Digestive problems, Electrolyte imbalance & dehydration
  • Bulimia can be very harmful to the body.
  • From a young age girls play with dolls that have body shapes that are virtually unattainable for women. As girls grow, they make remember their child hood dolls and wish they could look like their beloved barbies. We never see heavier barbies or barbies with different body shapes—all are skinny and tall and girls may think this is what is acceptable in society…and only this body type is considered pretty.
  • In 1970, G.I. Joe doll was slightly thicker in the waist and smaller arms. However in 2009, he had small waist (as though he were a real human) and much larger arms. It is obvious to see that expectations have changed in forty years.
