I’m writing a paper for my masters class on Female Bodybuilding and Eating Disorders. What do you all think? Is there a link? Do all of us have some sort of disordered eating in our past? Or do some just have some disordered thinking – self-image issues that are tied into self-worth? Or are we all just Type-A perfectionists who except nothing but the best out of ourselves. Or, is there an issue w/ weakness and a fear of weakness? Do we all want to build muscle to be stronger, on the inside and out.
Female bodybuilding and Eating Disorders
What is it that makes you want to lift weights, compete, be strong?
Have you heard of Bigorexia? There are new classifications of eating disorders nowadays…not just anorexia and bulimia. I doubt that Bigorexia affects too many women, but maybe. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
