There's something to this of course, but the greatest and most common eating disorder is still over - eating.

How many families are bankrupted and immobilised by the practice of overeating artery-clogging foods and, yes, of "feeling good" about it. How long do we have to see people in wheelchairs and carrying oxygen cylinders who would be healthy and active if not for gluttony and insane food choices.

I don't believe at all that we should be coercing people into temperate behavior, but we should at least be talking common sense about it.

Oh and let's do feel bad about the financial and physical destruction of individuals and families which results from obese and unhealthy adults and children who are ailing and dying from lifestyle choices that lead to cancers, severe respiratory problems, and heart disease.
