The following paper explores the ways in which we currently understand eating disorders, examining the current theory and literature as well as providing the stories of three women and one man with first-hand experience with eating disorders. Through the use of formal interviews, the paper focuses not only on the ways in which an eating disorder affects an individual’s life but also on the ways in which an individual’s life affects the manifestation of his or her eating disorder.
