Web Sites

   There are a great number of online resources for eating disorders, ranging from professional organization's Web sites to newsgroups to people's own personal sites. I have put together a list here of different websites that promote Eating disorder's treatment, I try to keep it up to date when a website is no longer in use I try to get it taken off etc. I want to encourage eating disorder recovery by getting people to get s much information from as many different places on eating disorders as possible. Hope these help!
