Parental Comments on Appearance
expect her to be upset by what you say. Tell her you realize your comments might be disturbing, but that you in no way mean to hurt her feelings or make her feel bad about herself.

Bulimia and Your Teeth
As a dentist, I am hyper-aware of people's teeth and smiles. Over the years, I've noted how people try to hide what's going on inside their mouths.

The Basics of Disordered Exercise
Studies have shown that between 33% and 80% of anorexics and bulimics engage in excessive exercise—the wide range probably due to inconsistencies in defining the term “excessive.” However, regardless of the statistics, a strong connection between eating disorders and overexercise exists, resulting in serious psychological, emotional, and physical consequences (in addition to those previously described for food-related behaviors). Exercise also has an addictive component because of neurochemical changes in the brain, which make recovery more difficult.
