The Truth About Eating Disorders

January 22, 2021 Ash Potter 0

Stereotypes that only models suffer from eating disorders is damaging because it means that people around you showing warning signs of an ED slip through the cracks if they don’t fit this stereotype. A yoga instructor? A personal trainer? A vegan blogger? These are jobs that center on health but they can also be the perfect jobs for someone to hide their ED behind. When I went on a trip with my friend Ish, her militant vegan diet and restriction on the times she ate didn’t seem weird because she’s a yoga instructor. I’d read about the benefits of vegan diets and saw Youtubers do intermittent fasting but the truth is, an ED can affect anyone.
