Important Research About the Causes of Eating Disorders in Girls and Boys

There is very important new information that could affect the way eating disorders are treated.  According to research from the Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, boys and girls develop eating disorders for different reasons.  That's important because it could have a direct impact on choosing treatments.  According to the research, frequent dieting and trying to look like persons in the media are predictors of binge eating in females of all ages.  In males, negative comments about weight by fathers are predictive of starting binge eating.  It's a very interesting study showing the differences between the sexes.  

We always appreciate your comments.
