Question Description

Help me study for my Nutrition class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

Assignment: Eating Disorders

Cultures idealizing thinness, pressure from peers to fit in, and constant images of bodily perfection shown by mass media, along with additional physiological and psychological factors, can combine to create the perfect storm for adolescents struggling with eating disorders. For this Assignment, choose one peer-reviewed research study about eating disorders that focuses on a minority group of adolescents. Consider connections between physiological development, adolescence, and eating disorders.


Submit a 2- to 4-page paper for which you articulate a position on eating disorders in adolescent girls from diverse racial and cultural experiences. Explain how the position is related to the biological and/or physiological development as well as psychological development of adolescent girls. Further, explain how such findings can inform evidence-based social work practice. Please use the Learning Resources and the research study you identified to support your answer.

Student has agreed that all tutoring, explanations, and answers provided by the tutor will be used to help in the learning process and in accordance with Studypool's honor code & terms of service.

Eating Disorders
Eating disorders among adolescents are on the rise due to individual and environmental factors.

adolescent girls.
The Situation of Eating Disorders in Adolescent girls
Adolescent girls adopt eating habits due to sensitivity towards the changes in their body size,
shape, and weight. They revert to dietary adjustments that threaten their nutritional status,
psychological, and social developments. Factors such as peer pressure, social media influence,
family environment, and body image concern contribute to dissatisfaction in their body appearance.
