Why are eating disorders a result of poor body image? Part 1
Eating disorders. While many have an idea of what eating disorders are, there are many misconceptions that people might have about them. It might be a difficult concept for someone who has never struggled with eating disorders to understand why people develop eating disorders. A little disclaimer here that we are not professionally-trained doctors who can diagnose the listeners or give any medical advice but what we would like to do in this first part episode is to educate people about the different types of eating disorders and to hear stories from people who have struggled with eating disorders.
