Mythbuster Monday

Myth: People who are normal weight or overweight don't have eating disorders.

False

Facts from the Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness:

"It is difficult to predict whether or not someone has an eating disorder because not all eating disorders are determined by the size and weight of a person. An eating disorder is not always easy to detect based on weight. Bulimics tend to be at an average, or even above average, weight. Compulsive overeaters are typically overweight rather than underweight."
