Check out my interview in the Yorkshire Post from yesterday
Although I didn't get to see this Yorkshire Post report before it was published (on the growing problem of boys with eating disorders) I think the journalist has done a pretty good job, even though most of my comments have been paraphrased. Also bit of an odd choice of image - child's feet on scales!!?? But, all in all, it gets across the problem of BMIs being used as an indicator of the seriousness of an eating disorder, especially in boys, plus the fact that media images don't "cause" eating disorders but they can be a trigger in some people.
