In our society, beauty is often measured by how thin you are. This creates a pressure to be thin that is both unnatural and unrealistic for most of us. It has also increased the awareness of eating disorders.
Defining eating disorders can be confusing. The National Eating Disorder Information Centre (NEDIC) is a Canadian, non-profit organization, established in 1985 to provide information and resources on eating disorders and weight preoccupation. Their goal is to promote healthy lifestyles that allow people to be fully engaged in their lives.
