Eating Disorder Awareness Week (Part 1): Understanding Teen Eating Disorders
This week, in observance of Eating Disorder Awareness Week, Teen Talk will be providing you with information and resources on eating disorders. Today, we’ll begin with linking you to up-to-date background information on the most common forms of eating disorders found to affect adolescents.
“Eating disorders are so common in America that 1 or 2 out of every 100 students will struggle with one. Eating disorders are more than just going on a diet to lose weight or trying to make sure you exercise every day. They’re extremes in eating behavior — the diet that never ends and gradually gets more restrictive, for example. Or the person who can’t go out with friends because he or she thinks it’s more important to go running to work off a piece of candy.”
