A site dedicated to help our youth escape from eating disorders associated with unrealistic expectations and pressures placed on them by models.

Welcome graphic

Who am I?

My name is Rachel Miller.  To find out more about me and why I started this club, click the title "Who am I?"

The average model is 13-19% below expected body weight. In order to be medically considered anorexic you have to be 15% below your expected body weight. We cannot have our society's standard of beauty be the size of a person with anorexia nervosa. 

Our Mission

Help me change the modeling industry by informing the public about these facts. Newspaper articles, magazine articles, letters to congress, letters to news and talk shows will put the word out on the street that something needs to change. Our youth is being destryed by these unhealthy definitions of beauty.

Eating Disorders Awareness Week is coming up!  We're helping out and need more volunteers.  Click on Club Projects or email me for more information.

Treatment

Although you may have eating problems of your own, I would love for you to join.  Having eating problems may actually help you as a member.  Having experienced everything first hand you will better understand the importance of our cause.  If you are unsure about anything, feel free to let me know.  Everything will remain completely confidential.  Although we do not have the training or resources necessary to give nutritional or psychological advice, we can point you in the direction of someone who can help!  Even if it is not you who has the problem, you can learn about how to help someone who may.  Click here to learn more.
