Having the media cake and wanting to eat it, tooMY time was near way back a decade ago. That was when SM banned adult movies in its theaters, sending Philippine cinema crashing in one fell swoop. I found myself floundering in the doldrums of writing — no more scripts to write, no more films to direct. But because the writing bug just wouldn’t stop biting, I contented myself, anyway, with running blogs for my literary outpourings, political thoughts and historical insights. At 70, I had gone through so much adventure that in my desire to share it with the world, my mind just wouldn’t say, “Enough.” Over coffee at Café Adriatico one afternoon in 2010, one guy thought so, too — Dr. Dante A. Ang, chairman emeritus of The Manila Times. He gave me a try, saw that I got what it takes to run a newspaper column, and then veritably to tunes of angels singing hallelujah over a risen downed pen pusher, I began writing a column for the paper, first with … [Read more...] about Having the media cake and wanting to eat it, too
Eating disorder cant stop eating
Eating disorders affect 30 million people in the United States, according to the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA). To help promote better body image and eating disorder awareness, Congress passed the Long-Term InVestment in Education for Wellness (LIVE WELL) Act, which could mandate body image education in federal nutrition programs for all people regardless of weight or body type. To promote the goals of the LIVE WELL Act, NEDA developed The Body Project, a “group-based intervention that provides a forum for women and girls to confront unrealistic beauty ideals and engages them in the development of healthy body image through verbal, written, and behavioural exercises.” To better understand the goals of The Body Project and what it entails, I attended a session at NEDA headquarters in Times Square in New York City. The program gives participants the tools to embrace themselves and deflect any future negative body image comments Eating disorders, like … [Read more...] about Eating disorder prevention could become a mandatory part of schools’ curriculum.

Some of the personality traits — endurance, pain tolerance, persistence — that helped Minnesota Nordic ski champion Jessie Diggins capture gold at the 2018 Pyeongchang winter Olympics were the very same characteristics that fueled the eating disorder that once threatened to sideline her athletic career. This realization, made while Diggins was undergoing outpatient treatment for an eating disorder that developed when she was in her late teens, felt significant, like a 2-ton weight had been lifted off her shoulders. “For a long time, I felt guilty for doing this to myself, for hurting my family,” Diggins said. But then, while taking part in group therapy sessions at The Emily Program, a comprehensive eating disorder treatment center headquartered in St. Paul, Diggins learned that she was likely genetically “primed” to have an eating disorder, that the very personality traits that made her an Olympian also put her at greater risk for developing … [Read more...] about Olympian Jessie Diggins opens up about her eating disorder, hoping to inspire others to get help
There is no shortage of myths about eating disorders out there that continue to prevail – but the truth is that people of all ages, genders, and body types can develop an eating disorder. With recent research showing that a third of adults are unable to recognise common eating disorder symptoms, as well as our cultural fixation with disordered habits like fad diets, weight loss transformations, and beauty treatments designed to fix perceived “flaws,” it can be alarmingly easy to develop an eating disorder without even realising it. INSIDER spoke with three mental health experts who told us how seemingly harmless (or healthy) habits can turn into a full-blown eating disorder. Exercise becomes rigid, regimented, or punishing. Exercising can certainly be a healthy habit that benefits both your body and brain, helping you feel stronger both physically and mentally, and even better able to tackle stress in your daily life. But plenty of seemingly harmless exercise … [Read more...] about 12 warning signs of an eating disorder that may surprise you
