Abstract

The continuum of eating disorders from anorexia and bulimia nervosa to obesity carries with it many undesirable and harmful physical and psychological consequences. Although treatment of these disorders has attracted considerable attention, the area of prevention has been relatively neglected. This paper addresses the dangers of preoccupation with excessive weight and proposes early intervention as an essential preventative strategy.
