This isn't really a post. It's more of a repost of someone else's blog, found via a retweet of the same.
I like this piece, although I do wish it didn't end as an advert.
It reminded me of a study I heard about at the EDIC conference last year (Recognising and Managing Physical Problems on a Specialist Eating Disorder Unit) which I can only find in this very difficult format. As the title explains it's about the physical consequences of long term Anorexia Nervosa. They're dire. My first reaction was "well doh of course they are". My reaction now is "why the hell is this important study so difficult to find. Every clinician should know this and they obviously don't"
