U.S. culture’s obsession with unrealistic body ideals is taking a toll on girls. By age six – that’s kindergarten – girls start to express concerns about their weight and shape. As many as 60% of girls in elementary school worry about becoming “too fat.” By the time they’re teenagers, 50% of teen girls (and 33% of boys) admit to using unhealthy methods to control their weight, including smoking cigarettes, skipping meals, fasting, vomiting or taking laxatives. Body dissatisfaction seems almost baked into the national psyche.

Summer is almost here. For some people, the long sunny days conjure up happy times spent at barbecues, the pool or trips to the beach. For people in recovery from eating disorders, the carefree days of summer can feel like anything but. “Bathing suit and shorts weather” can cause body image issues to resurface, while pressure to fill a plate with food at social gatherings can cause stress and anxiety. If left unchecked, summer activities can be a trigger for a relapse of eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia and binge eating, with their cycles of starvation, binging and purging. If thoughts of summer are causing you to worry about how you’ll get through it, here are some way to cope.

It's probably not a huge surprise that men and women have different ideas about what constitutes the "ideal" body for women. We conducted a survey in January revealing how dramatically different these body type perceptions are. The following Health piece featuring expert commentary from Rosewood Centers for Eating Disorders Executive Clinical Director, Dr. Dena Cabrera, examines the results and mental health ramifications of our survey.

Despite a wave of Hollywood films, TV specials and books focusing on the potentially deadly health risks presented by eating disorders, a new study reveals that many Americans don’t view anorexia, bulimia, binge eating and other eating disorders as the life-threatening mental illnesses they are. We encourage you to check out the results of a January 2018 study we conducted exploring public perception about eating disorders.

Rosewood Centers for Eating Disorders invites you to attend a special event, "Breaking Through the Trifecta: Obesity, Binge Eating Disorder, and Bariatrics" on April 13th from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm MST at our Rosewood Tempe location. The goals for this presentation are to highlight the similarities between these three populations, but then to further breakdown the complicated differences. These differences are the KEY to effectively supporting the specific needs of someone who is obese yet has no emotional eating or body image struggles, or who has BED but never received emotional support, or someone who is or has had a bariatric procedure and is just now seeing the implications of the decision. Lunch will be provided along with 1 CE credit. Please RSVP at the following page. We look forward to seeing you there!

Rosewood Centers for Eating Disorders Executive Clinical Director, Dr. Dena Cabrera, was recently interviewed for the following Yahoo Lifestyle piece examining how the prevalence of eating disorders in older women has historically been an underreported topic. This is partly because of the stereotype that eating disorders are a younger person’s disease and partly because older women have often become masters at hiding their struggles.
