Anorexia

Eating disorders : “Eating Disorders Foundation chief executive Amanda Jordan said women as old as 70 were being treated in Australia, but it was more common in those in their late 30s to 50s.”

While we are focussing on weight we need to look at the other end of the spectrum. We are not balanced in our eating. We are not relaxed and we are not thinking in terms of health and pleasure. Food is no longer breaking bread with people . it is fast becoming the focus of our anxieties and lack of balance. We are developing eating disorders across age groups and sexes. Some eat too much and some are not eating enough. What are we doing to ourselves. We need to identify the root causes of us not being able to be at peace with ourselves. We can all sit here speculating as to whether it is too much work, too much pressure, the current world situation. We need to get some good, hard facts to help us help each other.This article tends to suggest women are unable to age gracefully and we have lost that sense of women maturing like fine wine.
