Fertile Eating disorders are a group of serious conditions in which you're so preoccupied with food and weight that you can often focus on little else. The main types of eating disorders are anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and binge-eating disorder.
Eating disorders can cause serious physical problems and, at their most severe, can even be life-threatening. Most people with eating disorders are females, but males can also have eating disorders. An exception is binge-eating disorder, which appears to affect almost as many males as females. Eating Disorders Types of eating disorders
Anorexia nervosa
you're obsessed with food and being thin, sometimes to the point of deadly self-starvation.
Bulimia nervosa
you have episodes of bingeing and purging. During these episodes, you typically eat a large amount of food in a short duration and then try to rid yourself of the extra calories through vomiting or excessive exercise. You may be at a normal weight or even a bit overweight.
Binge-eating disorder
you regularly eat excessive amounts of food (binge), but don't try to compensate for this behavior with exercise or purging as someone with bulimia or anorexia might. You may eat when you're not hungry and continue eating even long after you're uncomfortably full. After a binge, you may feel guilty or ashamed, which can trigger a new round of bingeing. You may be a normal weight, overweight or obese. Red flags that may indicate an eating disorder include:
•Skipping meals
•Making excuses for not eating
•Eating only a few certain "safe" foods, usually those low in fat and calories
•Adopting rigid meal or eating rituals, such as cutting food into tiny pieces or spitting food out after chewing
•Cooking elaborate meals for others, but refusing to eat them themselves
•Collecting recipes
•Withdrawing from normal social activities
•Persistent worry or complaining about being fat
•A distorted body image, such as complaining about being fat despite being underweight
•Not wanting to eat in public
•Frequent checking in the mirror for perceived flaws
•Wearing baggy or layered clothing
•Repeatedly eating large amounts of sweet or high-fat foods
•Use of dietary supplements or herbal products for weight loss
•Food hoarding
•Leaving during meals to use the toilet
•Eating in secret Reading page “the beauty ideal pg220”
-what may be beautiful in one society may not be in another, adds stress of having to satisfy all societies
-western female: delicate, thin figure and wore bone crushing corsets(ruptured organs from how tight they were) “hourglass shape”
-lead to 1920’s flappers, then long legs show off in 1960s
-each race has their own beauty ideal, as well as superiorities and their expectations
-hair plays a significant role in woman’s body image
-body hair is not looked very well upon, but you have to have “long hair” to be accepted.
-surgery is done to meet these different ideals
-shows like nip tuck create an influence on this process
-“perfect/sexy bodies” are used to increase sales, the populations’ consumptions
-healthy weight
-BMI, normal weight may not always be the most attractive weight for a woman
what society embeds into the mind of little girls TV shows enable us to express our inner desires and needs, we crave action, drama and secrets. often you would find subliminally through (shows, movies and magazines) sex appeal, violence and racial comments or stigmas. or
