Eating disorders are epidemic and misunderstood today in America. Education is one of the only preventative means to fight these diseases. This educational piece covers the many faces of eating disorders and the devastating effects on the lives of real people. In the video anorexics, bulimics, and the often maligned compulsive overeaters share their intimate experiences. The interviews captivate and allow the viewer into the minds and lives of someone with an eating disorder. Health professionals also explain the facts on the diseases, how to recognize them, what causes eating disorders, and how to recover. Some experts estimate that 50% of women will have eating disorders at some point in their lives, and almost as many men. They also estimate that at any given time 20-30% of the population is suffering from an eating disorder. This piece aims to raise awareness, let people know they are not alone, encourage recovery and love and acceptance of our bodies.
