1. Your age: 19
2. Gender: female
3. Ethnicity: Vietnamese

4. What do you think of your body: C) I like it

5. Do you often skip breakfast?: Not often. I make an effort to eat in the morning.

6. Do you diet a lot?: Never.

7. What influences our body image the most: Family/Friends/Partners

8. Do you or your friends often compare themselves to other people?: Yes. All the time. (not really "I wish I was that skinny" dominated conversation though)

9. Do you think that there is enough information about eating disorders at schools and in media?: Yes. Actually with some research I'd done in physio, it turns out that many young people learn to be bulimic from information they get from schools and the media. It's kind of like that part of the sex ed debate.

10. Are you aware what damage anorexia/bulimia does to your body?: Ahaha. I'm a physiology major. Of course I'm aware.

1. Your age ~ 19
2. Gender ~ Male
3. Ethnicity ~ Chinese

4. What do you think of your body:
C) I like it (it's not perfect, but i'm not complaining)

5. Do you often skip breakfast?
I skip breakfast if I don't wake up in time for it, which is about half of the time.

6. Do you diet a lot?
I have never intentionally dieted.

7. What influences our body image the most:
- For people in general, it's usually appears to be media.
- For me, it's 1/3rd media, 1/3rd family & friends, and 1/3rd myself.


8. Do you or your friends often compare themselves to other people? eg."I wish I was as thin as her/him"
Not really. We just occassionally talk about who's skinny and who's kind of fat in our group.

9. Do you think that there is enough information about eating disorders at schools and in media?
Not sure exactly, I never really paid much attention to it. Even if there was an excess of available information, most people are too stubborn (and sometimes too ignorant) to change. Just take a look at smoking (or drug abuse in general).

10. Are you aware what damage anorexia/bulimia does to your body?
I have a general idea.

4. What do you think of your body:
A) I hate it

5. Do you often skip breakfast?

Just about everyday, it's a habit of mine, I don't do it to lose weight or anything. I just don't like eating early in the morning.

6. Do you diet a lot?

Used to, though I try to eat relatively healthy, I usually don't eat much, and I can't avoid sweets since I'm a sugar addict.

7. What influences our body image the most:
H) Other (I think that is has a lot to do with, ourselves, and how we think other people view us. If people more often said that overweight people were beautiful, and you didn't have to compare yourself to someone who had a perfect figure or nearly perfect or too skinny figure, I think people wouldn't mind it as much. But in the end, overweight or normal people will probably always have weight and looks on their mind seeing as whenever you see someone more beautiful you wish you could hide in a corner or something.)

8. Do you or your friends often compare themselves to other people? eg."I wish I was as thin as her/him"
I do it all the time, it's a big habit of mine, though sometimes I compare what I eat to what other people eat and think. "How in the world can they eat that much and still be that thin. Actually how can they even eat that much?!" Evil people with super fast metabolisms, so blessed they are.

9. Do you think that there is enough information about eating disorders at schools and in media?
Well, I've seen and heard a lot about them, if anything I think they talk about it too much. I mean, you turn on the tv and you see another show with someone who throws up there food, or overeats or something. It's a bit annoying.

10. Are you aware what damage anorexia/bulimia does to your body?
I believe so, it not only deprives your body of nutrients it needs, but it also can damage your esophagus, and if you don't stop you could end up causing your esophagus to get injured enough that you'd cough up blood or even make yourself bleed internally it could even be fatal.
