National Eating Disorders Awareness Week

For those of you  not aware, Sunday Feb. 22 starts National Eating Disorders Awareness Week.

The mission of NEDAwareness Week

Our aim of NEDAwareness Week is to ultimately prevent eating disorders and body image issues while reducing the stigma surrounding eating disorders and improving access to treatment. Eating disorders are serious, life-threatening illnesses — not choices — and it’s important to recognize the pressures, attitudes and behaviors that shape the disorder.

Eating disorders not only effect girls, but boys as well…adults as well as children.   Read the facts.  Know the signs.  Get help.

Want to show someone you love how unrealistic advertising is?  Show them this website.  It will prove once and for all that all those girls and women on magazines and commercials are touched up and really don’t look “that good”.
