Over the years the research has become more specific in terms Of different types of eating disorder as well as the impact that it has on multiple areas of life.
For the first article I researched a topic which was first coined by the author Margo Maine, that topic is “Father Hunger”. This topic addresses the relationship between an adolescent female and the bond with her father and depending on the factors of the relationship the female is either more prone to developing an eating disorder or not. Although there was a large amount of articles available the further down the list searched the keywords became less relevant however I kept the theme of eating disorders constant throughout my search.
