FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 23, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Eating Disorder Hope, a respected independent resource for sufferers of anorexia, bulimia and overeating disorders, has partnered with MyPyramid to help eating disorder sufferers find nutritional and healthy lifestyle support.

"The purpose of 'Partnering with MyPyramid' is to equip consumers with the information that they need to make smart decisions about eating more healthfully and being more physically active," said Dr. Rajen Anand, Executive Director of the Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion, an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and sponsor of Partnering with MyPyramid. "Eating Disorder Hope is proud to play a role in bringing that vision to reality," said Jacquelyn Ekern, MS, LPC, founder of Eating Disorder Hope.

Eating Disorder Hope is dedicated to raising awareness of body image and eating disorders, and to improving access to treatment. EatingDisorderHope.com offers comprehensive information utilized both by individuals and healthcare professionals. Resources include an eating disorders treatment directory, tools for relapse prevention, eating disorder recovery tools, and libraries of articles, books, and recovery stories.

"Eating Disorder Hope encourages a focus on health and vitality as the preferred measure of good health, rather than an obsession with weight, which can trigger disordered behaviors," notes Ms. Ekern. "This partnership will help guide our visitors toward a healthier relationship with food and exercise."

The work of http://www.eatingdisorderhope.com is supported by sponsorship from Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center, Remuda Ranch, and Rogers Memorial.

This partnership should intensify the campaign to incite social awareness for ED, as well as increase the availability of help.
