Eating disorders are a guy thing, too
They are often thought of as problems for women and girls, but men and boys are also susceptible
Christopher R. Skarinka had heard about eating disorders. But everybody knows those are for girls - not a problem for a buff, 6’5” guy like himself. Yet by the time he graduated from Harvard, in 2007, he was addicted to making himself purge. Eating disorders have long been considered a female problem, but a 2007 Harvard study based on national survey data found that men are one-third as likely as women to have anorexia or bulimia and more than half as likely to have a binge eating disorder.
