AS AN EATING DISORDER THERAPIST, I'M CONCERNED ABOUT NETFLIX'S 'TO THE BONE'

Netflix’s new movie “To The Bone” opens with a warning that reads, “The film was created by and with individuals who have struggled with eating disorders, and it includes realistic depictions that may be challenging for some viewers.”

While it’s partly true that some of the more realistic elements of the film could be incredibly triggering for those who are struggling with eating disorders (as well as for individuals who have the underlying genetics to develop an eating disorder), there’s also so much about this film that actually just perpetuates dangerous myths about eating disorders and recovery.
