This is a great story about how using plus sized models in advertising could actually help fight ED's. I will let you draw your own conclusions but I think this is pretty cool and if it catches on, it might just help end the culture of crazy thin models. http://technorati.com/lifestyle/article/plus-sized-models-could-combat-eating/

That is really interesting research, and I'm glad the researchers recognised that the media do not cause eating disorders, but rather contribute to body dissatisfaction, which can lead to dieting, which can lead to development of an ED.
I'm going to move the thread to Body Acceptance because I think part of all of our recovery efforts is acknowledging and accepting our bodies, at whatever size our genetic set point decides we need to be to be healthy.
Thanks! BTW, welcome to WBB. I think this is your first post, so it would be great if you mosied over to Introductions and tell us a bit about who you are and your interests, activities, pets, whatever.
