Eating disorders can often be a major cause for concern across age groups. From teenagers to young adults and even senior citizens at times are afflicted by bulimia, anorexia, binge eating and many related disorders that can often put them at a significant life risk. It is estimated that in United States alone, 10 million men and 20 million women suffer from various types of eating disorders. But the problem is most do not come out in the open and a mere 10% seek medical care. It is for this reason that the internet and especially blogs that discuss these issues can be very helpful. They do not force an individual to come out with their problem, yet the personal accounts add a touch of humane aspect to the whole issue.
Here is a list of 50 top blogs that can help you battle out the problems of eating and the associated disorders. We have put together the list on the basis of the quality of the content, the interval of updates, the relative relevance and type of narration. It is in no specific ascending or descending order of ranking but a collection of some of the best blogs on the topic.
