Does every woman have an eating disorder? It's a bold question but one that must be asked. Why is it that today's women--successful students, career women, wives, and mothers--are struggling more than ever with food and weight? Even those who don't suffer from a clinical eating disorder seem to have some sort of issue around food and weight.
We live in a culture of culinary abundance but are taught to do whatever it takes to shrink our flesh. From an early age, women are bombarded with messages regarding what size and shape they should be, a campaign that takes a toll on their relationship with food, their self-esteem, and their health.
It's hard to go a day without seeing an advertisement for a new diet product, overhearing a conversation about weight between colleagues or a plan of attack between friends as they brace themselves for dining out, or reading a headline about our nation's obesity crisis.
