    • Ah, yes. Exactly. Apparently only teen-aged girls understand eating disorders. No men were ever man fun of for being fat as children. No man ever had to lose weight for wrestling or bulk up for football or make weight in the army. Why are women so weak willed that they get EDs instead of just owning up?

      Will can be built far better than a wall of excuses to hide the truth.

      • You keep saying that, but to what effect?

            Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

                seriously, that drives me nuts. Or, even if he *is* smart and clever, she treats him like he's an idiot or he's portrayed that way. Drives me bonkers.

                • Uhm, as I said before, btw, eating disorders (in men and women) come from deeper issues than media impact.

                  But yes, media impacts men and women.

                  • My question is... why do you watch TV like that.

                    It's ridiculousness canned. With extra HFCS, BPA, and preservatives. YUM!

                    Of course...
                    Kenn has posted this one before... at least once in another thread.
                    So it's sort of a canned version of a sit-com too.

                        Most eating disorders are about control/anxiety. So, they come from something else, btu the media images of beauty don't help.
                        My family was falling apart when my eating disorder started. It also did not help my grandmother was cruel. Nowhere safe to go.
