According to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Related Disorders, the National Eating Disorders Association, and the National Institute of Mental Health, between 5 and 10 million Americans suffer from eating disorders. Most are female although an estimated 5 to 10 percent of people with anorexia or bulimia, as well as 35 percent of those with binge-eating disorders, are male.
