The Diagnostic Criteria for being anorexic or bulemic or a binge eater is ridiculous... and something I hope to see one day change. I Costin's 'Eating Disorder Sourcebook' she describes a case where a women is 200 pounds with the worst most entrenched case of anorexia she has ever seen .. but because she is not 15% a normal body weight she cant be diagnosed and therefore isnt eligable for subsidised treatment. An eating disorder does not fit into a selection of critera.. they come in all shapes and all sizes and are just as damaging whether they fit a criteria or not. It really annoys me!
