Highschool Skinny Blues

Why is it that most eating disorders occur in high school students more than any other level of students? Think about what girls have to endure every single day. In highschool there is almost always the “popular girls” who are always the perfect body weight, well proportioned, and all the guys love to hang around them. Take an ordinary girl who maybe isn’t as popular and I’ll show you a girl who is longing to be just like the “popular” girls. This is where it begins. They start thinking they need to lose a few pounds and maybe they can go buy the same skinny clothes like the others girls have. So they start paying attention to the popular girls and they may notice that some of them use binging as a way of keeping the weight off. Of course this is where the problem starts, but this is also where parents or guardians should step in to try to stop this as well.
