Directly, yes I agree. But the skinny image we have is affecting more than just those with ED's. The women in normal range that starve themselves are huge. Something like 90% of women have dieted at one time or another, obese or not.
There may be more people in the world overweight and obese than with ED's. But that doesn't mean the message isn't filtering into and affecting the majority of women's lives.

Yes ED's are a mental health issue. But often so is obesity. BED is an actual ED in the DSM.
I feel like there has been so much snark directed at me and anyone else that has offered a different perspective in these discussions. It's a shame.

Spin off : what does obese look like?
I don't understand why every conversation around the obesity crisis gets muddied with talk about models, fat skinny, eating disorders, people who are fat but fit etc.
Ask any health professional what the biggest crisis is in Australia and they will say the overweight and obese.
Binge eating disorder affects between 2-5% of the population, more than 50% of the population are overweight or obese. It's not eating disorders that are causing this issue.

Whereas your own weight distribution for your height may look different. The website you posted didn't reflect my weight distribution too well.

I don't understand why people are becoming so rude and aggressive at others pointing it out? I wonder if maybe the notion that thin people can be just as disordered in their thinking over food and weight may make some uncomfortable.

Many mums undertake a diet after having had a baby for instance.
I'd also think that the abundance of food has something to do with out need to diet.
Big food marketing make us eat more than we need then we have to diet to stay in normal healthy range.
All those reasons have nothing to do with skinny ideal.
