The Reality Of Men With Eating Disorders
Men With Eating Disorders
Very true that women
and girls are mostly affected by eating disorders, men and boys are not left out.
They too are
vulnerable. They are affected almost at the same rate as girls and women in
Binge (50:50) and less (1 in 4) in Anorexia!
Men and boys who have eating disorders have a distorted sense of
body image. Many suffer from an extreme concern to be more muscular.
This is a disorder called muscle dysmorphia.
They oscillate between extremes:
Some want to lose weight while others want to gain weight to develop
Some think they are too small and get into substance abuse,
as in the use of steroids to build up more muscles.Effects Of Eating Disorders In Men
The effects of eating
disorders in girls and women are similar to those in men and boys. Diseases and their effects are hardly gender sensitive.
