Eating disorders are epidemic and misunderstood today in America. Education is one of the only preventative means to fight these diseases. This educational piece covers the many faces of eating disorders and the devastating effects on the lives of real people. In the video anorexics, bulimics, and the often maligned compulsive overeaters share their intimate experiences.
The interviews captivate and allow the viewer into the minds and lives of someone with an eating disorder. Health professionals also explain the facts on the diseases, how to recognize them, what causes eating disorders, and how to recover.

Some experts estimate that 50% of women will have eating disorders at some point in their lives, and almost as many men. They also estimate that at any given time 20-30% of the population is suffering from an eating disorder. This piece aims to raise awareness, let people know they are not alone, encourage recovery and love and acceptance of our bodies.

The video covers the breadth of eating disorders and allows many people to relate to and learn from it.




Compelling interviews: The viewer sees real people candidly speaking about their eating disorders and experiences. The interviews are intensely personal and let the audience into the lives of each individual.

Everyday people: The project focuses on mainstream cases of functional people with eating disorders, not just what is typically covered in the media of Hollywood stars with issues or extreme cases of people who are near-death or dying. The mainstream approach allows more people to relate to and learn from the video.


Diverse group of people interviewed: We have interviewed numerous people from different backgrounds, genders, and ethnic groups with different eating disorder patterns and backgrounds who are at different places on the recovery.


Includes compulsive overeating: This topic is often overlooked in the eating disorder discussion although compulsive overeating and obesity are huge issues and even more common than anorexia and bulimia.


Production team has personal experience with eating disorders: Team has a passion to tell this story and spread this education. The team created the video to increase awareness, let people know they’re not alone and encourage recovery.
