National Eating Disorder Awareness Week

March 1, 2010 | NeW Staff

Being an enlightened woman is feeling confident not only in your femininity and intellect, but also in your beauty.

NeW at the University of Florida is promoting positive body image and relationships with food this month. So often, women think of food as the enemy (especially with spring break coming around the corner), but it doesn’t have to be that way!

During health week at UF, the ladies of NeW are compiling a recipe book filled with healthy makeovers of our favorite foods, because having a healthy body should never mean starving yourself. NeW is also partnering with fashion company CovetedList to help women embrace their body types.

If you have a healthy recipe you’d like to share for the cook book, please post it here or email [email protected]

While these are little steps, we hope to encourage college women to prevent low self-esteem and eating disorders by living healthy lifestyles and loving the bodies God gave them. 

However, some eating disorders are symptoms of psychological problems or are entrenched lifestyle habits. Last week National Eating Disorder Awareness Week served to bring these issues to light and encourage those who suffer to get help. For more information, visit NEDA.

Anorexia and bulimia are diseases that should be taken seriously. Stigma and shame surrounding them should not exist or keep anyone from seeking professional help. Below is a video dispelling myths about anorexia:
