Potential Link Found Between Early Diet Choices and Eating Disorders in Girls
Researchers found the percentage of carbohydrate and fat consumption by girls around age 11 seemed to predict increases in body dissatisfaction by age 14.
Washington Depot, CT (I-Newswire) August 10, 2012 - A recent study from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center analyzed food preference data from girls, starting at age nine, over a 10-year period to see if there was any relationship between early dietary choices and the development of eating disorder symptoms in adolescence.
Researchers compared girls’ percentage of carbohydrate, fat and protein consumption when they were young to the subsequent occurrence of eating disorder symptoms, dissatisfaction with body image, erratic eating habits and preoccupation with thinness. They found the percentage of carbohydrate and fat consumption by girls around age 11 seemed to predict increases in body dissatisfaction by age 14. Those who consumed a low amount of fat and a high percentage of carbohydrates were more likely to demonstrate erratic eating habits by age 19.
“The commonly recommended and followed low-fat diet—high in carbohydrates, particularly processed varieties, along with low or poor protein choices—is a problem for everyone, not just girls,” say boomer generation health experts Dian Griesel, Ph.D., and Tom Griesel, authors of the new books TurboCharged: Accelerate Your Fat Burning Metabolism, Get Lean Fast and Leave Diet and Exercise Rules in the Dust (April 2011, BSH) and The TurboCharged Mind (January 2012, BSH).
“Modern food products and diet advice are a recipe for disaster when it comes to your health,” say the Griesels. “Everyone who consumes an unnatural diet and accumulates excess body fat will resort to erratic eating habits. It comes as no surprise that young women attempting to emulate extremely thin models will resort to drastic measures, particularly if they are listening to typical diet and weight-loss advice. It’s not about carbohydrates, protein and fat. A diet based around modern processed foods is not healthy for anyone.”
