For many women, a preoccupation with body image and a lack of self-esteem manifest themselves in an obsession with food and diet. Such destructive obsessions can result in anorexia nervosa and/or bulimia. These eating disorders are not about food; they are a reflection of and an outlet for inner turmoil, fueled by society's focus on appearance and the fashion of thinness. This program looks at the hidden behavior, stress, denial, and the cycle of guilt and shame that underlie these eating disorders; shows how depression, low energy, desperation, serious medical complications, and even death can result; and explores their effects on family and friends. The program shows how, when women begin to admit to themselves that there is a problem, relief comes in sharing their story with others. The program also shows the importance of proper treatment and professional help.
