Gnawing Problems

According to a study conducted by Self magazine and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 65% of American women — that's just about three out of four — between the ages of 25 and 45 have disordered eating behaviors. "Our survey found that these behaviors cut across racial and ethnic lines and are not limited to any one group," says Cynthia R. Bulik, Ph.D. Eating habits like banishing carbs and skipping meals may actually be symptoms of disordered eating, even though some women think they are normal. While 65% is a huge number, is it really surprising? Do you know a woman — a friend, mother, sister — who has never been on a diet? [Science Daily]
