Anorexia stems from body as well as mind – study - BBC News
The origins of the eating disorder anorexia nervosa are in both the mind and the body, according to an international study.

Anorexia is seen as a serious psychiatric disease.

But doctors at King's College London showed changes hardwired into some people's DNA altered the way they processed fats and sugars and may make it easier to starve their bodies.

The eating disorder charity Beat said the findings were groundbreaking.

The researchers looked at 16,992 people with anorexia and 55,525 people without the disease, from 17 countries.

All their DNA - the blueprint for the human body - was analysed to find mutations in genetic instructions that were more common in anorexia patients.

The study, published in Nature Genetics, found some mutations also presented in other psychiatric disorders such obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, and schizophrenia.

But they also found mutations in the instructions that control the body's metabolism, particularly those involving blood sugar levels and body fat.

"There is something in those systems that has gone awry," Prof Janet Treasure, from the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London, told BBC News.

The researchers - at King's and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill - say anorexia should now be considered a "metabo-psychiatric disorder" as it is a disease of mind and body.

But she's now beaten the disease, and wants to encourage other women to realise that "your worth does not depend on your weight". She's collected 40,000 followers on Instagram by posting images of her new, healthier, fuller figure, complete with stomach rolls and cellulite. Megan hopes that her @bodyposipanda account will help combat the "Fitspiration" craze on social media which, based on her own experience, she says promotes images of unnaturally thin bodies that are both unrealistic and dangerous.

Is it HEALTHY to have Obese role models? Tess Munster - YouTube
fat shaming (does not help, ultimately) is not enlightenment (public education and personal self-education, reading up how you harm yourself and people from high up & ur parents have poisoned you since your inception (epigenetics, pollution)), medical intervention, helping someone when you were in their shoes and found help and or helped yourself. Only YOU YOURSELF can be of true interest about YOUR health, because it is your life, your health, your well being, happiness, your disposable income not to spend on medical care. Not food multinational conglomerates owned by a handful shareholders! Theyre not interested in ur health or the nations exploding health care spending. They are interested in maintaining the status quo. Dividends. Profits. Less regulation & oversight. Rising share price. Share buybacks. As child ur indoctrinated, by those people. Because they HOLD the power. There is no broccoli lobby. How abt frame lobby involvement in food pyramid as nanny state by food giants!?

'I had to starve myself for anorexia treatment' - BBC News
Prof Fairburn says accounts of people being denied treatment because their BMI is not low enough are "appalling". "It would be like someone who has high blood pressure being told they're not getting treated until it gets even higher. You're expecting someone to get worse before they're allowed to get treatment - it's the exact opposite of what the NHS should be doing," he said. But he understands why some doctors may struggle to treat eating-disorder patients. He says GPs may not see many cases and it can be hard to get them to agree to initial treatment. He agrees that early intervention is crucial. "Eating problems develop in teens. What we do know is the longer they have it the more secondary problems develop. If we nip it in the bud early, the problems are much more treatable, have much better outcomes." // &! - Body mass index 'encourages anorexia'

Stark rise in eating disorders blamed on overexposure to celebrities' bodies | Society | The Guardian
Beat, the eating disorders charity, said the rise was startling but the figure may reflect better detection rather than an actual increase in cases of very serious eating disorders. Rebecca Field, its head of communications, said: “Worryingly, it could be attributed to treatment not being available early on in individuals’ illnesses as an outpatient, eventually necessitating hospitalisation.” Ulrike Schmidt, professor of eating disorders at King’s College Hospital, said: “Clinicians might be becoming more risk adverse and admit more quickly than 10 years ago, because there is generally more awareness of the risks of anorexia nervosa. It could be to do with patients having to wait a long time for specialist treatment or services in the community and deteriorating while waiting so that they need to come into hospital.” &! early treatment important - &! &! &!

Journal of Eating Disorders | Abstract | Masculinity and femininity in the divergence of male body image concerns
Given recent assertions suggesting that gender role endorsement may be relevant in the divergence of male body image concerns, this study examined the self-reported gender role endorsement in opposing dimensional extremes of male body image disorders, namely, muscle dysmorphia and anorexia nervosa. This study further examined the relationship between gender role endorsement and eating disordered and muscle dysmorphia disorder pathology. >

Leben nach einem Schönheitsideal [...] Sie ergänzt: „Wir leben nach einem Ideal: schön, rank und schlank. In der Früh isst der Betroffene einen Apfel, zu Mittag ein Brot, am Abend wenig bis gar nichts. Damit kann ich vielleicht leben, aber nicht überleben.“ [...] „Wir müssen den Selbstwert der Kinder steigern“ [...] Bereits sehr junge Kinder (40 Prozent der Kinder und Jugendlichen in Österreich zwischen 9 und 15 Jahren) machen sich – unabhängig vom tatsächlichen Körpergewicht – Sorgen um ihr Aussehen und haben im Schnitt ab zwölf Jahren mindestens drei Diäten ausprobiert.“
