LIVELINES: EATING DISORDERS

  Body image is a big problem for most women, but when it comes to teenage girls they are more at risk of developing an eating disorder.  
  So how do you talk to your daughter or other women about healthy eating and this condition.
  Our guest this morning was Jenny Johnston, The Executive Director of The Mary Cameron Robinson Foundation.
  She says it is important to start with girls as young as second grade about body image and healthy eating.
   Here are some of the main reasons teens develop eating disorders.

-Societal pressure.
-Low self-esteem.
-Family stress.
-Favorite activities.

She also talked about the upcoming Cammy's Walk this weekend at GPS.
