What It’s Like To Be A Man With An Eating Disorder


Several famous men like Zayn Malik from One Direction have made headlines recently by revealing they have experienced eating disorders. But, celebrities aren’t the only ones who live with eating disorders.

The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) estimates that approximately one in 10 men in the United States have an eating disorder.

However, men with eating disorders often hide their condition because it is often considered a “women’s problem.” Current predictions suggest less than a tenth of the men who live with an eating disorder ever receive treatment.

To bring attention to the millions of men living with eating disorders in America, Revelist recently talked to five men who have dealt with eating disorders throughout their lives about the effect it has had on their lives.
