NPR Article About Men with Eating Disorders (Binge Eating)

I came across a great article about men and eating disorders (specifically Binge Eating Disorder) on the NPR site. This article does a good job of helping to dispel the myth of the stereotypical eating disorder patient (you know, a severely underweight teenage girl), and addresses the fact that people with eating disorders can be any size, and that there are eating disorders other than anorexia. Perhaps most importantly, it talks about men with eating disorders. There are some helpful resources at the end of the article, too. Kudos to NPR for running such a timely, hopeful and helpful article.
