A Picture Of An Eating Disorder

We already knew that those suffering from eating disorders had distorted body images, but apparently that manifests itself literally. When researchers asked women to draw themselves, they found that those suffering from anorexia or bulimia tended to draw themselves with different characteristics: no feet, larger mouths and thighs, and necks that were either larger, disconnected or missing. This could be a useful tool in diagnosing those women who are at risk for ED.
