  1. 1. Eating Marissa Totokotsopoulos
  2. 2. Thesis Statement Eating disorders are much more than just being on a diet. An eating disorder is an illness that affects all aspects of a person’s life, and can be caused by many different emotional factors and different influences. It has effects not only on the people suffering from the disorder but loved ones, friends and family members as well. There are different types of eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, compulsive overeating, and binge eating disorder.
  3. 3. Personal Relevance This topic of eating disorders is important to me, as well as something I can relate to because some of my best friends have struggled from eating disorders. Dealing with this, it has made me want to be more educated and be more aware of what exactly eating disorders are, the differences between them and how we can help people struggling and raise the awareness of eating disorders to everyone!

  23. 23. Positive Body Image http://www.campaignforrealbeauty.com/
  24. 24. Do’s/Don’ts for trying to help someone with an eating disorder Don’t.... be judgmental threaten or bribe to get better think its “just a phase” try to solve the problem yourself be afraid to speak up Do speak to the person in private tell them what you’ve seen that concerns you listen have resources that they can refer to understand each person is different and will react differently
  25. 25. My Application • I helped to plan and hold an ANAD Candlelight Vigil through Delta Phi Epsilon’s sorority, where we had inspirational music, poetry, recovery stories, and accepted donations and raised money to go to ANAD. • It was held on Monday, March 1st 2010 to kick off Eating Disorders
  26. 26. What is a Candlelight Vigil?
  27. 27. The ANAD Pledge I will accept myself as I am. My uniqueness is a badge of honor, something to be proud of. There is no one in the world quite like me and I will strive to develop my special skills and abilities. I will accept others as they are. Each person is special and different. I will to try to learn from these differences rather than be critical of them. I will support diversity and freedom of expression in the way people think, look and live. There is no single standard of “rightness,” rather we live in a world of individuals, each of whom provides a different answer. Through our differences humanity continues to evolve. I will not tolerate physical or mental abuse. There is NEVER a reason for people to hurt other people and I will do my utmost to prevent such abuse. We are all equal and deserve the same thoughtful consideration. I will actively work to change media programming and advertising that exploits or demeans the human body. Setting standards of physical “perfection” is harmful to everybody. The media needs to understand that real human beauty lies in our differences, not our similarities. I will work to improve the lives of individuals, communities and the environment. As a responsible member of society, I understand that the more good I do for the people and places around me, the better off everyone will be. We need to think not only of today, but of tomorrow and our children’s future. I will support good health through proper nutrition, regular exercise and adequate sleep. Good health enables us to achieve success in life— at work, at home and in our personal relationships.
  28. 28. What we did... Raised over $300.00 Over 150 people attended
  29. 29. WHY WE SUPPORT ANAD Because... it’s one of the most underfunded causes in the U.S. an estimated 8-10 million suffer for eating disorders one-in-four female adolescents display symptoms of eating disorders
  30. 30. The bottom line! Eating disorders: Anorexia, Bulimia, Overeating, as well as Binge eating are horrible illnesses and can cause many long term effects on a person suffering from them. As illnesses they are deadly and not only effect the person but their loved ones as well. We, as a society need to wake up and see that real beauty is all around us and are in regular people not just supermodels. We all need to be aware that people with eating disorders are all around us and we need to help when we can and support a positive body image for everyone!
