Eating and body image disorders
Although eating disorders are more common in women, they can affect men as well. Anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorders are serious, potentially life-threatening disorders marked by abnormal attitudes toward food and weight. Men with an eating disorder may watch calories obsessively or work out at the gym to excess. Men with body image issues may also become obsessed with their muscles, skin, genitals, and nose, or hair— areas of the body that aren't typically the focus of women with body image issues.
