Boulder is a really bad place for eating disorders. High school is a mess.
Also unrelated: anorexia among college athletes is a very real thing. These psychotic sports commercials of Sharapova and Hope Solo and whoever the fuck else aren't doing anyone any favors. That said, I guess I'm with teger, it's just hard to watch when the counterswing is so damaging, particularly to people who are not unhealthy.
The "Fat Acceptance" movement is something that makes me fly into a blind rage so I can't really discuss it or read articles about it.
In Austria they made a big deal out of anorexia in ski jumpers, since being a lightweight is so directly correlated with performance. A number of runners and cyclists I know well have ended up being diagnosed with an ED, it's definitely rough, but it's so easy to fall into it if you're already predisposed to sacrificing other aspects of your life in pursuit of winning. The key to an ED, after all, is to build a set of rules and then punish yourself whenever you make a perceived transgression, which is exactly the same motivation that gets you to wake up at 5AM day in and day out to fit in two-a-day workouts around work and school.
