Healthy Within is dedicated to the treatment and prevention of eating disorders. We are beginning a new project to determine various influences on body image and self-esteem. There are two questions we are current posing to young men and women to learn more about how their experiences in middle school and/or high school may have led to issues such as body hatred, body image issues and eating disorder behaviors.

This project is to help determine the effects of fat caliper testing and exposure to stories about eating disorders in middle school and/or high school? Help us examine these questions, we need your feedback.

The first question we are posing: "Were you affected in middle school or high school by a story of a person with their eating disorder?" We would like to determine how exposure to these stories may have had a positive or negative influence on your body image or related to the development of eating disorder behaviors.

Secondly, "Did you ever have any kind of fat testing done in middle school or high school?" If, so how did this effect your perception of you body, your self esteem, etc?

Please direct your responses to these questions to Dr. Divya Kakaiya at
e-mail: divya@healthywithin.com
Please put the word "Advocacy" in the subject line.
