Eating disorders - Can they meet halfway?

A very interesting article "Fat and Thin Find Common Ground" was published yesterday in the New York times in perfect timing with the eating disorders lecture. Only this May did binge eating disorder become an official mental condition in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. In response to this, some are wondering if now being under the umbrella of "mental condition" will first spawn more attention to the specific needs of binge eaters, and second will allow the eating disorder community as a whole to come together more productively to look at the broad scale of similarities among those with eating disorders.

Be sure to check this article out and let us know what you think!
