E’s new six part series “What’s Eating You?” explores the reality of people suffering from eating disorders. The preview can be found here: E! Online Documentary Eating Disorders Series (WARNING: material may disturbing or triggering).
I personally am excited that there is finally a reality docu-series on eating disorders. I really enjoy watching the shows Intervention and Hoarders on A&E. I feel more compassionate towards others challenges and illnesses through shows like these. I also feel good when I see them seek treatment. I think this show will help those who are struggling understand they are not alone. The strange behaviors are actually completely common and shared by so many others. Rader’s motto is, “You’re not alone. We can help.” And I feel like this show will help people understand what a real and scary illness this can be.
If you are struggling with an eating disorder, know someone who is, or wonder if someone you know may be struggling I encourage you to watch the show. My dvr is already set and I am excited to give you some reviews as the weeks go by.
