Everybody Knows Somebody, and It's Time to Talk About It: Body Image and Eating Disorders

LifestyleBraidey LeNae4 Comments

Hey, it's LeNae. 

I have a soft spot for those suffering from Body Dysmorphic Disorder and/or an eating disorder. 

I suffered from both for too many years. 

Did you know that according to the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), approximately 20 million women and 10 million men suffer from an eating disorder, and 95% are ages 12-25 years old (2014)? 

Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is another disorder affecting around 0.7% to 2.4% in the general population as reported by Bjornsson, Didie, and Phillips (2010). 

Everybody knows somebody, and it's time to talk about it.
