Men: What's It Like Having An Eating Disorder?

Let's break the stereotype that only women deal with these problems.

When it comes to eating disorders, there's one side of it that often goes unheard: that men deal with them, too.

That includes anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and other specified feeding or eating disorders (collectively known as OSFED).

Maybe you're dealing with one of these issues. Maybe you wish the conversation around eating disorders included the experiences of men.

Maybe you want people to know about how it all began.

Or maybe you want to talk about how other people have reacted to it.

Maybe there's something you want to say about your path to recovery.

Or maybe you just want to express the thoughts and feelings you go through every day.

We want to hear about your life with an eating disorder.
