The Perfect Image – A documentary on eating disorders
I was emailed a documentary from a young lady who struggled with an eating disorder. Thought I would share it. If you are struggling with an eating disorder I would strongly encourage you to talk to your parents (or other adults in your life) and then talk to your family doctor to get some help.
Looking at this early obsession with weight loss and body image, strengthened by group and peer pressure, along with a sport focused on perfectionism it becomes easier to imagine why so many young athletes develop an eating disorder.
