"What's Eating You?"

If you haven't gotten a chance to check this 6 part series out yet, please do:

"What's Eating You?" is a show on E! Wednesday nights at 10pm about people who struggle with different types of eating disorders and how they live day to day. It is very heartbreaking to watch, but also really gives the viewer an inside peek at the private struggles these people indure, which many of us have no idea about because of how isolating and secretive this illness generally is.

Here's only a glimpse of what you can expect to see:

The next episode is on tonight on the E! channel at 10pm and is about two people Mona (who suffers from bulimia after her gastric banding surgery) and Andrew (who suffers from the isolating effects of bulimia). Check it out!

And shameless plug, we will be having an information table located in the Fishbowl from 11:30am-2:00pm on Monday, November 8th, 2010. Also, our annual Eating Disorder Awareness Week will be happening again this year February 21st to the 25th, more details to follow!
