Feeling inferior to attractive partner may trigger eating disorders in women

According to a study published in the journal Body Image, women who found themselves to be less attractive than their husbands or romantic partners, were more motivated to diet and be thin often to a point of developing eating disorders. 

Eating disorders comprise of a range of psychological disorders characterised by abnormal or disturbed eating habits. Eating disorders are as serious as any physical ailment, which must be treated with immediate attention, else it may manifest into long term health consequences associated with poor mental health. 

Of late, with increased campaigns to promote Mental Health awareness, eating disorders have also started gaining the attention which was long due. On the other hand a similar motivation to diet to point of starvation was not observed among women who happened to be more attractive than their husbands. As for men, their motivation to diet was low regardless of their wives attractiveness or their own, according to a media report.
