More than two-thirds of American women are dissatisfied with their bodies and, on college campuses, 60-90 percent of young women are dieting or trying to lose weight, according to the National Eating Disorders Association. Around 10 percent of college females are engaging in bingeing and purging as a weight-management technique.

We also know that eating disorders are not just a women’s issue; approximately 10 percent of those with eating disorders are men. Many young men are also struggling with compulsive exercising and/or abusing supplements or steroids.
