TV Host Helps Others Overcome Eating Disorders

New Zealand TV host Alison Mau remembers what it's like to be young and obsessed with physical appearance. As a teenager, she struggled with self-image and tried a number of crash diets in order to lose weight.
"With her daughter Paris, 10, entering her tweens, Alison is well aware of how important positive messages about a problem which can plague adolescent girls can be... 'There are far more important things to think about, and more enjoyable things to think about, than what you look like.'"
Mau shared her experiences in an effort to support the Eating Difficulties Education Network (EDEN) which designated Oct. 15 as Love Your Body day. Mau encouraged anyone who thinks they have body image or eating disorder issues to get help immediately.Source: New Zealand Sunday News
