Does this make me look fat?

One of the things to come out of third wave feminism and the sexual revolution are eating disorders.

Danielle’s Place is a non-profit organization that provides support services for eating disorders. Danielle’s Place was founded in memory of Danielle Mayeur, who passed away from anorexia in 2001. Danielle wanted a support group that would prevent other people from going through what she had gone through.

There are several warning signs that accompany an eating disorder.

  • An impulsive focus on healthy food and nutrition.
  • A sudden interest in reading food labels to check fat grams and calories.
  • Starting diets to lose weight or become healthier.
  • Skipping meals.
  • Lying about foods you’ve eaten, when they’ve been eaten and how much you’ve eaten.
  • Worrying about weight and being dissatisfied with how they look.
  • Drinking excessive amounts of water or liquid that have no calories (in order to feel full)
  • Poor concentration.
