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…

As a result of this, suppliers of foods high in salt, sugar or fat may need to rethink their production process or risk losing customers. This change, combined with the growing healthy eating awareness of the UK will again benefit companies who are producing organic foods with natural ingredients.

The Normal Aging Process
Society has taught us all kinds of “things” regarding aging, including the process
of aging and “normal” changes that occur. Most of what we hear from others
comes in the form of “myths” of normal aging. Knowledge of these myths makes
aging a fearful, unhappy approaching event for many of us. However, it should be
the sight of a new beginning. Understanding the aging process; what, why, and
how changes occur; and strategies to prepare ourselves for…

Can you remember the last time your power went out at night and was off for an extended period of time? Usually we pull out the candles or flashlights and maybe sit around the table and talk, play a game, do a puzzle, or maybe just go to sleep. There is a community of people that does this exact thing every night, but not because their power has gone out; rather they choose to live their lives…
