Many times when we think of someone who is struggling with an eating disorder there is one type of body that comes to mind. The media paints the narrative that a person with an eating disorder is a young, thin, able-bodied white woman. It’s important that we understand that this is not true and that people of all sizes, ethnicities, and body types can struggle with eating disorders.
Showing only one version of an eating disorder is harmful to all those who are struggling, but do not identify with the mainstream narrative. We must deconstruct the stigma around people in larger bodies with eating disorders.
This stock photo collection series features people who are choosing recovery and healing from their eating disorders. Through this collection, we get to see a representation of different body sizes that are often not shown as the face of eating disorder recovery.
“Dear Sister (not just cister),
Your transformation and healing are vital to the healing of the world.”
