NEDA Week: Reality

I have an old postcard from the Body Shop that says something like "There are 3 billion women who don't look like super models and there are only 8 that do."  (I'll try to dig up the postcard later on.)  It's all over the media, all over the recovery/health industry - models today are depicting such a tiny margin of the general population.... 98% to be exact.... why?  Why can't we have real people as models?  Maybe it's time to rethink things.... we shouldn't have to change our body to fit the minority that society has deemed desirable.... but that's a whole different post!

Today's featured blogger is Carrie Arnold of Ed Bites.  Carrie's blog recently underwent a huge makeover, and has been packed with even more information, guidance, and unique to her blog, lots of scientific nuggets that get under the skin of eating disorders.  Carrie often combs the interwebs and pulls together recent and relevant articles about eating disorders and co-occurring conditions.  Definitely worth a peak!
