Dr. Phil: Body Obsessed Boys

I'm a big fan of Dr. Phil. Thought I'd share this.

The episode is about Eric, a 15 year old boy with an eating disorder. He has a phobia of gaining body fat.

Part 1:
Part 2:
Part 3:

If you want to see the entire episode, you can find the other parts on youtube as well.

In Part 6, you get to see Troy, a physical education teacher who doesn't practice what he preaches.

Eating disorders are much more common in women which often causes physicians to fail to diagnose these problems in males. Also, the stigma inherent in having an eating disorder as a male causes most men to delay treatment.
