Few solid statistics are available about prevalence of eating disorders amongst men.  Because eating disorders are thought of as a “girl thing”, men who have them feel even more shame and are less likely to get help.  

For men and women, symptoms vary slightly.  Women tend to focus on weight loss while men tend to focus on muscle gain - however, both are found engaging in extreme alterations in diet, over-exercising, and even use of performance enhancing/appetite suppressing drugs.

Check out NEDA for more info & keep an eye on my Tumblr this week to learn more about eating disorders!
