Obesity and Anorexia Nervosa

  • Gloria R. Leon

Abstract

Historically, moderate obesity in infants and children has been viewed as a sign of health and as an affirmation that one’s mother is loving and nurturant. In less affluent countries such as India, obesity is considered a demonstration that the family has enough wealth to procure food. Additional evidence also suggests that various cultures differ in the norms for the body weight that is considered the ideal of physical attractiveness for men and women (Goldblatt, Moore, & Stunkard, 1965).
