Eating Disorders and Weight Management The websites I chose were all related to eating disorders and weight management. The first page was nationaleatingdisorders.org and was information about anorexia nervosa. I then visited an overeating website as well as an article on heavy Americans speaking out against criticism and showing “fat pride”. Lastly were stories on the procedures and histories of obesity surgeries. All of these were very educational on their topics. Anorexia nervosa is an eating disorder in which individuals do not eat enough food and are obsessed with weight loss and their body image. This leads to an unhealthy body weight that can be very life-threatening. Anorexic individuals will most likely be malnourished due to lack of proper macro and micro nutrient intake. This deficiency leads to slowed body processes and can cause devastating problems. The highest risk of anorexia is in women. Overeating is a common issue for many individuals. Overeating generally occurs in both people who gain weight and people who are trying to lose weight. Symptoms of an overeater include binge eating, eating out of boredom, eating from guilt, depression, etc. These can cause unmanageable lives that are ultimately unhealthy. OA.org is an Anonymous group to help support people with this disorder that are seeking a way out of this bad habit. The third page I visited was a New York Times article about the argument of overweight people against reform. Basically, the main argument is that thin does not mean healthy. There are many people who are thin, but not healthy, and vice versa. It is very possible for an individual whom is technically overweight to be healthier than someone within their healthy weight range. However, being healthier in some aspects does not mean being overweight is still acceptable due to other risks such as heart and cardiovascular issues. Regardless, Marilyn Wann promotes “fat pride” in hopes to change society’s view on “fat” people. Lastly were histories and explanations on a variety of obesity surgeries from asmbs.org. This page went over six different obesity surgeries. Within each one they included the origin and by whom, the reasons why one might get this,…

One thing Americans pride themselves on is that everything is bigger here, “our cars, houses, and even our waist lines” as Morgan states (Spurlock). This is evident in the rise of obesity, which is central to the opening of the documentary. Apparently it has gotten extremely…

graduate from high school because I was pregnant at the time. It was very important to me to either go back to school to obtain my high school diploma or G.E.D. and in June of 2005 I achieve that goal of obtaining my G.E.D. Education is one thing that I pride my children on accomplishing or achieving whether it be college or vocational college but to get some source of degree under your belt because today just having a high school diploma or G.E.D. isn’t efficient anymore. Most employers want more than…
3. The Grocery Market
The government launched an advertising campaign in early 2013 to promote healthier eating habits in the UK (BBC 2013). The main aim of this campaign is to increase the awareness of “hidden nasties” such as fat and sugar in popular foods. This campaign is the latest in a long line of government aided movements in order to increase health awareness in the UK, some examples of others being change4life and 5 A Day. This latest movement shows that healthy eating…

throughout the community that the people are able to use, but it is much more appropriate for them to talk face-to-face. “The ban on telephone ownership was established due to the Amish belief that it contrasts the spirit of humility; contributes to pride and individualism; is not a necessity; and is a link to the outside world” (Lancaster County, n.d.). Regarding the assumption of the community dressing modestly, this was also true. The Amish women of Lancaster wear modest, solid color dresses, with…
