Make peace with your body.
Many people struggle with eating disorder behavior, and some may not even realize it because these types of behaviors are so commonplace nowadays. In our current culture and society, it seems like being preoccupied with food and/or your body is the norm, rather than the exception. Moreover, these behaviors and the pursuit of thinness tend to be glorified and praised, especially here in Miami, where there is a strong value placed on appearance and physical fitness.
