Instagram, TikTok and Pinterest Add Support Features to Help Users Struggling With Eating Disorders

Social media has long been the bane and the muse of anyone suffering from an eating disorder. To exist online with a pulse in the year 2012 was to understand the cesspool of “thinspiration”-style content that proliferated on platforms like Tumblr, Xanga and Pinterest, and more recently, the rise of “influencer”…Read more...

Warum die Darstellung von Bulimie in The Crown gleichzeitig so wichtig & problematisch ist

The Crown S4. Picture shows: Princess Diana (EMMA CORRIN). Achtung: Der folgende Artikel enthält Spoiler für die vierte Staffel von Netflix’ The Crown! Die vierte Staffel von The Crown steht ihren Vorgängern in Sachen Drama und Spannung um nichts nach. Und obwohl die Serie sicher nie versucht hat, seichte Unterhaltung zu liefern, lässt sich kaum leugnen, dass sie wohl noch nie finsterer war als jetzt.  Staffel vier beginnt in den späten 1970ern und rückt die mitunter berühmt-berücht...

Countless People Are Struggling With an Eating Disorder Doctors Can’t Diagnose

At first, Melanie Murphy was just following doctor’s orders. Murphy, then 19, had gained weight during a period of depression, and her doctor told her she should lose some. She went from 180 to 125 pounds in 18 months—and even when she knew it was time to stop slimming down, she couldn’t shake the need to chase a goal. Without weight loss, she needed a new target. That became finding the “perfect” diet, one that was clean and pure and would keep her healthy for years to come. At least, that...

Why Women in Recovery Must Combat the Diet Culture

Diet culture is insidious. We spend our lives obsessed with our bodies — always wishing for a smaller shape, scrutinizing the size of the portions on our plates, and unscrupulously comparing ourselves to thinner people. It’s damaging because it leads us to equate our worth with our appearance. For people in recovery, that is especially harmful. We experience physiological changes quickly — including weight gain — once we find recovery, and we can often leap to the assumption that we have a food ...

Meet The Models Redefining The Era Of Designers & Their Muses

France passes law that says Photoshopped images must have a disclaimer

France isn’t the first country to legislate on image editing in advertising (Israel did so in 2012), but it’s good to see more awareness on the issue. Fines of €37,500, or 30% of the cost of creating the ad, can be given to those caught out. Studies have shown that, out of all Western Europeans, French women have the lowest average BMI, at 23.2, and 11 percent of French women are considered “extremely thin.” The new law is aimed at helping to tackle body image problems among people chasing bod...

What To Know Before Watching Movies About Eating Disorders

There's a new Netflix movie premiering next month called To The Bone that depicts one young woman's struggle with anorexia. The movie has already created quite a stir, and after the trailer was released, some people argued that it was triggering and glamorized the realities of eating disorders. If this argument sounds familiar, that's because it crops up almost every time there's a pop culture depiction of disordered eating — it's nearly impossible to tell stories about eating disorders without...

This 'Fat-Shaming' Meal Planner Company Sends Harmful Mixed Messages

A U.K. company is under fire for its “fat-shaming” food journals, which contain phrases like “I want to skinny dip, not chunky dunk,” and “fridge pickers wear big knickers.”  Blogger Charlotte Moor tweeted a photo last week of Fox & Moon’s products, which ship internationally, alongside the caption “It’s literally the worst thing being fat isn’t it.”  TW: Diets and food planningIt's literally the worst thing being fat isn't it. pic.twitter.com/NEhFH0InPP— Charlotte Moor (@Lottie_Lam...

Once Again, There's Very Controversial Dolce & Gabbana Shoe Design

Dolce & Gabbana finds itself at the center of controversy once again — this time, for a sneaker from its fall '17 collection which is being accused of equating beauty with thinness.As you probably saw (most likely, and fittingly, on Instagram), the Italian label's latest ready-to-wear collection was millennial-themed (and -cast). The runway was sprinkled with homages to the generation Dolce & Gabbana was courting: letterman jackets, graphic logo T-shirts, Justin Bieber merch, and DIY-look sneak...

The Infuriating Thing This Personal Trainer Said To His Client

When Kayleigh Boase posted a photo of herself on Snapchat in sweats and fluffy socks, she probably expected her followers to be a little jealous of her chill night in.Instead, she got inappropriate comments about her body from her personal trainer, which she later posted to Facebook. "Comfys on and chill," Boase wrote on her Snapchat photo. Her trainer, Jowan Townsend-Trahair, shot down her mood in two words. "That belly," he wrote, with two sad face emojis.At first, Boase thought it was a jok...

Un-Retouched Ads Aren't A Huge Money-Maker, But Brands Don't Care

The use of Photoshop to alter faces and bodies is a point of contention in the fashion industry. For starters, it perpetuates unrealistic beauty standards and causes its fair share of epic fails.  That’s why it’s so exciting that there’s an emerging movement to minimize the use of photo-altering tools by brands both big and small. Lonely Lingerie was recently praised for featuring Lena Dunham and Jemima Kirke sans retouching. Modcloth made waves when it pledged to ditch using Photoshop on its m...

Eddie Huang Explains Why Talking About Male Body Image Issues Is So Tough

Eddie Huang kept it raw and real while discussing the stigma around male body insecurity in a new interview with GQ. The Fresh Off the Boat author and restaurateur revealed his own struggle with body-image issues as he spoke to the outlet last week about his new gig as an underwear model for MeUndies.

This Is Why There Aren't More Medications For Eating Disorders

Along with therapy, medical care, and work with a dietitian, medications can be used to help treat some eating disorders. However, to date, there's only one — an antidepressant— approved specifically to treat bulimia. A controversial stimulant (Vyvanse) is the only drug approved to treat binge-eating disorder. And there aren't any medications that are FDA-approved to treat anorexia.With seemingly endless choices for drugs designed to treat anxiety and depression, why are the options for those ...

Zayn Malik Opens Up About Struggling With An Eating Disorder

In addition to struggles with anxiety, Zayn Malik says that the pressure of fame also had an affect on his eating patterns. In a new autobiography titled Zayn, the 23-year-old singer revealed that he struggled with disordered eating while touring with his former band, One Direction.“When I look back at the images of myself from around November 2014, before the final tour, I can see how ill I was," Malik wrote, according to an excerpt from The Guardian.

Psychology Around the Net: October 22, 2016

Once again, my friends, I come to you from behind a computer screen with a box of tissues on one side and a trash can on the other. Tears are running down my cheeks, I can’t stop sneezing, and even though I can’t breathe my nostrils aren’t too stopped up to — well, I won’t get gross. Wasn’t it just a few months ago I was suffering from allergies? Can you even get allergies in the fall? According to WebMD, you sure can, and thanks to a myriad of potential culprits (mold spores and pollen hiding ...

Instagram's Newest Feature Is Incredibly Important

We use Instagram to share photos of the beauty around us, the delicious meals we've eaten or created, and our personal highs. But it is a social network, and we also use it to share our feelings when we're sad, upset, or when we need some moral support. Today, Instagram made some subtle but important changes to its app. Now, if you see a friend post something that feels like a cry for help, you can do something about it — without being confrontational.

Did you think that Gordo and Lizzie were meant to be?Now, tell me this: Can you remember any single Lizzie McGuire episode or moment?

Depressing Study Finds Even 3-Year-Olds Have Body Image Issues

People used to think body-image issues start in adolescence. Then it was elementary school. Now, evidence suggests that body-image anxiety can take hold of kids as young as age 3. So basically, when they’re barely out of diapers.  A small but alarming new survey of more than 350 childcare professionals released by the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years (PACEY) in England on Wednesday asked whether they’d seen signs of body image issues in young children of both sexes.  Nearl...

Weight Lifting Was The Key To My ED Recovery

Photographed by Lauren Perlstein. Exercise bulimia is often referred to as "the eating disorder no one talks about." It's true that it doesn't get as much airtime as disorders like anorexia, but I think that's because it often goes unrecognized and therefore unexplored. That's why Linnea Zielinski's raw and eloquent story about her journey through this horrific mire is one that needs to be heard, far and wide. — KMThe second time I collapsed from running, it was to the sound of hundreds of peo...

Why I Work Out Less — & Am Healthier Than Ever

Photographed by Alexandra Gavillet. There was a time when I would have gone on a five-mile run and berated myself for slacking off. The minimum mileage for it to feel worth it would have had to be at least eight to 12 if I wanted to really feel good. Back then, when I lived in NYC, I maintained a strict sweat schedule: 45+ miles a week of running and at least three days a week of weights and stretching. Oh, and I walked to and from work — a four-mile total trek per day. On weekends, I challen...
