Male eating disordersUnfortunately, eating disorders and body image issues can affect anyone, regardless of their gender classification. Dedicated to smashing the commonly-held belief that eating disorders only strike women, internet personality Mina Gerges has opened up about his years-long struggle with restriction and a desire to conform to society's "impossible beauty standards." With 142 thousand Instagram followers, Gerges thankfully has a solid platform to shine a light on just how prevalent eating disorders are in today's image-obsessed society. Shooting to fame as a result of his hilarious celebrity photo recreations, Gerges now has enough clout to add weight to his claim that male eating disorders are real--and he even has the stretch marks and gym logs to prove it.
