  • Eat with people and eat slowly
  • Try to eat every color of the rainbow in a day

Statistics

  • 20% of college students struggle with some sort of eating disorder
  • Although many freshmen do not gain the “15 pounds”, several students gain 4 pounds the first 12 weeks of school

Help a Friend

How to Be

Friends may show symptoms of eating disorders, including eating alone, eating at strange times, eating large portions, or barely eating anything at all. It may be difficult to bring ask a friend if they are having trouble eating. Remember to be supportive and sympathetic.

Support Yourself

Do not get angry at yourself if your friend does not want to get help or does not think they have a problem.
