If I could offer advice on conversing with a loved one with an eating disorder during the holidays, I would tell them this: Avoid discussions about quantities or types of foods, diets, and body sizes to make the table safer for everyone.
As millions of Americans resolve to lose weight, parents’ new diet and fitness regimens may have an unintended, negative outcome — triggering disordered eating behaviors or body image issues in their children. Because children often will mirror what they observe in their adult counterparts, we urge parents to be mindful with their food- and body-focused words and behaviors while undertaking New Year’s resolutions.
