Celebrities, models, and women are not the only ones who suffer from eating disorders, they affect males, athletes, and more. Articles include causes and warning signs associated with youth eating disorders; such as anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorders, overeating, and more. Our goal is to help adolescents who may be experiencing weight issues and eating disorders find therapy or treatment to overcome these behaviors.
