Television, Disordered Eating, and Young Women in Fiji: Negotiating Body Im...: EBSCOhost

Gemmy Domingo's insight:

Could such a cultural institution "cause" eating disorders? Some people, including many professionals, find the answer of "yes" to this question to be understated, if not insultingly obvious. Yet other people find the question itself to be insulting. Today, many clinicians and families advocate the position that eating disorders are chronic biopsychiatricdisorders with a genetic basis and neurochemical manifestations, and that, consequently, sociocultural factors play a much smaller and decidedly nebulous role.

How Eating Disorders Differ in Men | Eating Disorders | Scoop.it
Eating disorders primarily affect women.
Gemmy Domingo's insight:

Eating disorders usually affect many women but its not just women, but also men. They get really competitive to bulk up more and become more strict on their diet, strict in an unhealthy way. Becoming obsessive over bulking up, this may lead to using steroids and a form of bulimia.

This article is stating the differences in women but mostly talking about men and their eating disorders. Women do this to focus in just weight loss but with the men they want to gain muscle and lose fat. They do this to either get bigger in an area, gain muscle, or they just want to be in a different weight class and be more competitive. To do this they just exercise but women on the other hand use laxatives and vomiting. I found this article very interesting and informative.

Evaluación de la utilidad de un Programa de Educación Nutricional en Trasto...: EBSCOhost

Gemmy Domingo's insight:

The prevalence of anorexia nervosa is approximately 0.5% and of bulimia nervosa approximately 2% among female adolescents and young women in Western countries. These prevalences and the incidence of eating disorders (EDs) are high among girls and young women compared with other chronic diseases that affect women of these ages.To our knowledge, only a previous prospective study has assessed the association between media exposure and the development of abnormal eatingbehaviors among adolescent girls.However, only the self-reported use of laxatives or vomiting to control weight was used as the outcome in that study.

Binge-eating disorder: What's the best treatment?

Binge-eating disorder: What's the best treatment? | Eating Disorders | Scoop.it
Researchers debate whether to tackle psychological or weight issues first.
Gemmy Domingo's insight:

Binge-eating disorders have the same symptoms of depression and personality disorders.Clinicians who treat binge-eating disorder as an eating disorder say that addressing the specific and general psychopathology that underlies the condition eliminates binge-eating and helps patients feel better about themselves. Treatments that fall into this camp include cognitive behavioral therapy, which addresses a person's thoughts and behaviors about eating and self-image, and interpersonal psychotherapy, which helps a person face and heal rifts in current relationships.
