"Disorders of of all I guess types thirty million people with me in studio a three members of meta, including the founder of this organization, which was founded twenty five years ago, Rebecca Manley, the multi-service eating disorders association of Massachusetts. Amanda. Distefano clinician and chief clinical director and Leslie Bernstein, who is the executive director on the line with us. Joe Julius former Penn State football player Joe's only twenty four and Joe by the way before we got a phone calls. I want you know, if any any of the guys are out there. They can check some of the the the involvement the football players that you had you had some great tackles, my friend. They are classic football tackles, you wipe some guys out who I think they're bell is still wringing. It's probably not a good thing. But they can just check it out as as Joey or Joe, Julius Penn State. It is there was. Yeah. You you were one tough do that. That is for sure let's get the phone calls. And if you have questions feel free do not the only dumb question is the question. You don't have enough courage show asking by the way, adult forget, you can listen to nightside on your Alexa, by simply. Saying Alexa, play WBZ NewsRadio on iheart radio. Let's start it off with Francis. In Boston or let me get a poll Francis up here Francis. Welcome you're I this hour on nightside talking about eating disorders. How are you Francis? I'm doing well. Hi, dan. And high matter staff is while I really appreciate the topic. Because I just feel like, you know, this is something I can never talk about with my girlfriends. You know, I I feel it's just there's really not no one gets it. So I'm just thinking to have the time. So my question is really about my son. I have two kids, and they're wonderful. They're great. They're so smart, they're so focused nice to each other. And my son is he's a junior, and I've just started to get a little concerned about him. You know, she's a rower. And as I said, he's he's just so driven. He's so focused you so hard on himself. You know, if it's if he's even five minutes late to something or if he gets a B on something just the end of the world, and I've noticed especially in. And just, you know, this past school year that she suddenly is concerned about, you know, getting it his running after after practice, and and how suddenly, you know, all these dinners that I I used to make together are suddenly not ok anymore, and she's working out and wearing all these layers of clothes, and he's telling me and an old that I'm just overreacting. And you know, I don't I don't want to upset him and sorted it overstep, you know, he's a young. So why do you think he's doing all? This was what is he just become a fitness guy? Or what what's what's the problem? It sounds to me like at least from where I'm sitting on probably the the ladies are going to have a much different perspective. Sounds like a young kid who's coming on and doing doing. Okay. What's the problem? Well, I I mean, he's always we've always enjoyed, you know, we've we've been hiking and ice skating, and we've always done things together as a family, but he's never had such a. He melts down. I mean, he will be near tears just just in almost hysterics if he's not able to run or if I. Door. Let's hold on. Let's see if we get some comment from people who are probably better qualified for this than me. Hold on Francis. Go ahead. Yeah francis. I'm really glad that you call and give you a lot of credit as a parent. And I think you know, your concerns that you're are expressing. Our are. Absolutely valid you've seen a change in your son's behavior. And there's a change related to his eating. You're saying that as well. It sounds like there's certainly more preoccupation around exercise and running or using coming up with in the food as well. Oh, absolutely. You know, she used to. I it was he was all interested in the Keno diet. And again, it was oh, well, you know, all the guys you're doing it. And then now only want stop free milk and coconut ice cream. I can't buy our regular ice cream. It's just every week. It's like, I come home. I make dinner and something else. He was he's refusing to eat shoved off his plate, right? Right. Do you do you think he'd be willing to talk to anybody about it? If you asked him that. You know, I. I don't know. I I think she would. I hope he would. I mean, he's a bright kid. He wants peaked absolutely going to college. And I just I think he's so hard on himself. He wouldn't want to appear weak. For being a baby. Or she says that all the time about how you know, she needs to be tough and his team and yet. Yeah. And I know we have Joey online who can talk about you know, the treatment experiences. It's extremely challenging and. Getting help is not a sign of weakness. It's really. Let's bring Joe Joe. You're an athlete, you're probably still an athlete. Your head refreshes has to say about his son to me as someone who doesn't know much about this. It sounds to me like he's a typical teenager expressing some independence, and maybe doesn't want to spend as much time on family hikes and all of that and wants to spend more time on his own or hanging out. Joey, what's your thought on this? I mean. Yeah. I mean, obviously, I'm not a doctor and just from from from what I went through with our used to do those things I used to work out every single day where trash bags they to sit and saunas I used to do any little any little trick or anything to curb my weight. Now, it does sound like he, you know, it sounds like meals upset them. It sounds like not being able to work out upset that definitely you know, it's a little bit of a red flag made. But I think, you know, talking to my mom over the years. I think she wishes that she could have pinpointed, you know, what I was doing in high school. She could really never put her finger on it. And she never really knew how to ask the right questions. But there also is never a wrong question to ask either. All right. We're going to get one one more perspective from the table here. Rebecca, who is the founder, go ahead, Rebecca Manley. It just one question is or one suggestion would be to call the metal office between the hours of nine and five and schedule an assessment for your son to come in and meet with one of our clinicians. We have clinicians who are amazing and who are able to sit and talk with teenagers about their body image concerns and they're eating concerns and might be able to really give some helpful formation. And francis. We also have some support for you as well for parents. This process is really overwhelming. We realize you know, you're not sure how to get help. And and what help actually looks like. And we do have a free parents support group on Monday evenings, the first and third week of of the month from six fifteen to seven fifteen for parents. We'd love for you to be there Francis. What we'll do is. We'll give all sorts. The contact information. And maybe you can take advantage of that. And and and learn a little bit more about about the situation that you certainly have identified. Thank you so much for having joined us. Thank you, everyone so much. Thank you for your time. Thank you Francis. Dr Seuss let's go to Logan in Boston. Logan in Boston. You're next on nightside. We're talking about eating disorders. Go ahead. Logan. Hi. Yeah. And coriander because I guess I do have a question about know what's going on in my own life. I've always been on the heavier side, you know, since college, and then specially more. So as an adult, even and I decided before the holidays that I really wanted to lose some way, you know, I started just dieting pay more attention to what I was eating and working out or and when I went to the doctor recently, he told me I was doing really well. And that you know, I I look great, and my health is going to be so much better. But I'm really getting nervous now that you know, something's going on. Because I am spending. All this time thinking about it. And you know, I get really really anxious around food and really stressed out about working out. And you know, I I feel like I feel worse about my body now than I did my more just because it's taking up so much time. Yup. Yup. Yeah. I give you a lot of credit Logan. And this is a this. Very real what you're talking about. In terms of you know, we live in a society where the diet industry makes over sixty billion dollars per year. And there is, you know, this this idea that if we're thinner we're gonna be happier. Right. And the reality is we are not all meant to be in thin bodies. And quite frankly, it would be boring if we were right? We all look the same. And I think you're hitting on it. Right. You've changed your diet. You've changed things are actually becoming more preoccupied with your body. These are definitely warning signs. And I would love to talk with you further off line if you'd be willing to come in, and we can further pull this apart. I mean, we certainly aren't in a place where were where we want to label anybody with an eating disorder, but we would want to really look at this with you carefully. And you know, the the other part of this as we believe strongly at meta in health at every size, which is a movement. Promoting sizes WBZ AccuWeather forecast absorb that. We hit something there. That's a that's a that's a misfire. We'll get that later. Go ahead and complete. That's no problem. But you know, I just wanna say you mentioned that you've always been in a slightly larger body, you know, and that may be where your body actually really wants to rest, and where it wants to be and that you can still be healthy and be in that body. And this is, you know, not only the the diet culture. I think not only adds to the development of eating disorders. But it also raises such a challenge for people to recover living in a society where we are just so focused on how we look and being thin. So, and you know, where are you folks? Located by the way, where's the we're in Newton mass. Okay. Logan. What we'll do is. We'll give them the address and also to contact information. And but I gotta take a quick break for now. And sounds to me like, this might be something that could be of assistance. Thanks, Logan, pre shaped your call. Thank you. Thank you. Very welcome gonna take quick break.

"Before we get to the phones very special guests joining us on the line is I'm Joe Julius Joe. How are you tonight? Hey, I'm doing good. How are you doing tonight? Couldn't be better. You know, a lot of people think about this as a condition or disease that affects women more than men, and I'm not sure we'll find out what those statistics are later on from some of our guests. And by the way, before I go Joe we have to make one little correction last segment. I asked a question about schizophrenia. And it's one hundred Rebecca you, tell me it's one hundred thousand people one hundred thousand people in the United States sorry about that's a thousand people in the state of Massachusetts. Okay. Joe? You have a great story. You were a division. One college athlete playing football at Penn State. I'm very familiar with your story. And so I'd rather have you tell us quickly. We have in studio with us Leslie Bernstein, who I think, you know, Amanda DiStefano and Rebecca Manley, but for the ordeal. Great. Thanks. So Joe, you're what? Now twenty three twenty four years old. How old? Yeah. Twenty twenty three twenty four. Don't remind me. No, that's right. Where you're getting old. Joe let me tell you boy only to be twenty four. I wish I was forty two never mind twenty four. So you were a kicker soccer player who became a football kickoff specialist that and field goal kicker and all of that. And you're playing for Penn State division one football. And what what was going on? There's a lot going on man. Yeah. It was a good time. I enjoyed you know, the short time that I played I only played for about three years. Get four years in college. Oh, no. I get that. Yeah. Definitely would love to get that last one. But unfortunately, I decided to take some time off to get my eating disorder on a control. So what what what was what was your situation described to us? Because again here you are. You're a division. One college football player playing. I watched some video view playing in the big house at university of Michigan. You were on some of them. The most legendary football fields in America, you had everything going on. Yeah. Yeah. I got the plan some of the great stadiums. And just, you know, for the listeners my little bit about my story is basically I struggle with what's called bend eating disorder, which you know, like men is not talked about a lot. Even with women. A lot of women that have been eating disorders. Actually, it's mostly talked about with anorexia bulimia bending disorder. Kind of gets you know, kicked out the back door a little bit. And that's what I struggle with. Which basically means is I have a very restrictive personality when it comes to mind disorder. I restrict all day. And then I'd been at night that was what I did for about two to three years when I was in college. So I would not eat anything. And then and I wanna throw up numbers. But basically, you know, I ate more than I should have been a short amount of time at night. And that was what really deteriorated started Delekta destroy my health. And it caused you to to to leave college football became so burdensome that I actually had to take time off because you know, I was a fulltime student and playing college football is a full time job all in one. So in order to have an eating disorder sorta is almost like a fulltime job as well. So you know, it was really tough to juggle all three of those things. So I decided to step away from them and just kind of focused on my eating disorder. And it was it was the best thing I ever made because you know, it helps me be able to get into recovery and stay in recovery and be able to also talk about it as well. No have you have you figured it out. Joe the the pattern you described as you you you restrict yourself all day. And then you've been gene at night have what you're eating pattern like these days. Honestly, I tried to I tried the longest time to stay very regimented and Venus orders, I personally believe it should be a very like privatized industry. Everybody's different every case is different. So for my case because I don't want to speak for anybody else. It just helped me to honestly just become a regulated eater. So I I try to just follow my, you know, my hunger. My I call they're called hunger. Cues I try to follow those and I just try to try to get my three meals a day. But I really don't even put a number on. I just make sure that I'm getting into calories throughout the day. And really I'm not getting food that that power over me anymore. You know, I I try to I try to use the food the food use me, by the way. I don't know if you know, Mike Mahama he heard of them. Yeah. Marlins Marlins catcher I have Mariners. Mariners.

"Congratulations to you careful OC of Arlington and Scott Murphy of dead now as everybody knows WBZ cares. And for several years. Now, we focus on a great charity in the New England area in the greater Boston New England area every month and this month, we have a charity called meta which has been around for a long time. But one of the I only found out about a few. A few months ago. It is the foremost eating disorders nonprofit organization in New England. They provide education about eating disorders and underlying causes to develop a compassionate computer community to promote hopefulness and supports healing. We have three guests is studio, and we are going to I believe talked to one guest on the phone. And of course, we always invite your phone calls, Rebecca Manley founded the multi-service eating disorders association or meta. Rebecca, you've been with the group for twenty five years or so that's correct. When you about four years old. Thank you very much. Honestly. Yeah. So how did it what what prompted you to start this? Well, I decided to start the organization for a couple of different reasons. One was out of my own recovery. I struggled with disordered eating for much of my life. I went back to school. I got my bachelor's degree in education and my master's degree in family. Studies in counseling and quickly realized that there was a major service lacking in the state around education and prevention of eating disorders and treatment for individuals, especially college students who are seeking help. So I started the organization February of nineteen ninety four with a mission to prevent entreat individuals with eating disorders, and the mission has really not changed much from the initial pillars that we started back, then we didn't plan it this way. But last hour last hour, we talked about bariatric surgery, which some people. Might think is it's a different. It's it's different. And I wanna make that clear right off. And amanda. Distefano is a clinician and chief clinical director of meta. So. When you say eating disorders that has to cover a wide spectrum of eating disorders. I assume people too much people eat little people only this whatever keep us a sense of what type of eating disorders this organization focuses on. I mean, we're talking about just the teenage girl who is sick or much much more than that. And good question. Dan. I mean, I think that's something that we really want to stress. I think there's a stereotype that people struggling with eating disorders are know teenage females or sort of this white wealthy female disease. And I want to be really clear that eating disorders exist on a spectrum, and they affect all ages all races, all all socio economic status, all genders and all body shapes and sizes, so what's really important is you cannot look at one's body type and determine their health these eating disorders or mental illnesses that are categorized by irregular eating habits and severe distress about concern over your body, weight and shape. So these people are really really concerned about how they look and what they're eating and the most common eating disorders that we're seeing at meta consists of anorexia nervosa Belania am Benji. Disorder. And this can affect as you said any variety of people. No, one is immune to developing an eating disorder, the executive director's also here who's a friend for many many years. And I gotta say it is the daughter of. Great doctor, a great set of parents, Larry Larry Cohn and his and his lovely wife. Roberta and Leslie Bernstein who. We've known since our daughter met her as a teacher at at the Windsor school in Boston. Let's see how did you get involved in this? What's what was the nexus here for for you? And and I know you so committed to this cause thank you. I do want to say, Dan, I really appreciate WBZ cares. Highlighting meta for the month of February. It's. And are really important to raise awareness around. Not only 'Iranisation but eating disorders in general. I was a friend of a board member who said please come to my fundraiser, which I did. And at that fundraiser, there was a whole. Initiative that was discussed that was about body, positively promoting body positively positive self esteem at all levels and they were starting an education initiative. I had just retired. And I was invited to be part become part of this education initiative. How we're going to give how meta was going to give presentations to schools to faculty to MD's are says other social workers other therapists, and eventually I became. I I was sucked in and draft Japhet. There you go. And and eventually the previous executive director retired. And last August, and there I was I was very very committed and very love the staff. Love the passion. Love the mission the numbers. Here are extraordinary because enlist correct me if I'm wrong, and then we'll open it up to some phone calls as well. Some thirty million people in America, we this like ten percent of the population are affected by this. Yes, it is a very important mental illness and up there with depression and anxiety, and it often can happen together to, but it is all very, very pervasive. It can start very young. It can start with. It's never about the food or the eating. It's always about certain feelings. And how you feel about yourself. How you compare yourself to others and it can. You know, even minor things, and certainly I had experience in middle school. Can lead later on to serious mental illness, and then serious consequences. One of the things it's really important to to talk about is something Leslie mentioned is that eating disorders are very prominent in our society today, and if you look at the amount of funding that eating disorders are given on a national basis eating disorders gets around twenty five million dollars in research funding. If you look at illnesses like schizophrenia, which gets three hundred and fifty million dollars a year for research funding. And if you look at the numbers about a thousand people in the United States struggle with schizophrenia compared to the the numbers of people who are struggling with eating disorders. So it's really schizophrenia was that number one thousand people in the United States one thousand people struggle with schizophrenia what just one thousand. That's yes, I'm stunned by that. So it's a very very small number of individuals who struggle with schizophrenia compared to the numbers of people who struggle with eating disorders. Okay. Before we go to break real quick question. We live in a very. Affluent society? Okay. We're probably the most affluent country in the world, I'm assuming that eating disorders probably don't exist in in the third world. I'm assuming that. So my question is how much of the constant bombardment that that particularly young people face every day through so many media outlets, whether it's television, whether it's the internet about the perfect body shape and the perfect style and the emphasis that's putting it looks that has to contribute to the problem. You folks are fighting anyone. Absolutely. I think there's no one reason why someone develops an eating disorder is a combination of factors, but our society definitely plays a huge role. And what we all look like, and I think our society idolizes the perfect body and that perfect body leads to body dissatisfaction, especially in our young people. We are talking about eating disorders and stick with us. I promise you'll learn a lot we get back. We'll continue our conversation will open up the phone line. Six one seven two five four ten thirty. Triple. Eight nine two nine ten thirty those of you out there who have a concern as to whether or not you're you're dealing with an eating disorder. You wanna give us a call and ask some questions that's not a bad idea. Join the conversation here on nightside back right after this. Nightside.

"This is the frame on John horn for today's show, we talked with film critic Claudia Puig about what festival movie she seen, and which ones have stayed with her. Then Jake John Hall plays. An art critic in the new film, velvet buzzsaw. He tells us how his own views about the value of criticism have evolved. More and more. I think over the years I've found it a lot funnier and playing a critic and finding humor in a critic has given me the opportunity separate myself from that and a documentary about the origins of the nineteen seventy nine film alien takes a deep dive into the famous chest Burster seeing all that.

Judges are hearing cases that were already scheduled for this week. Not the many cases that were scheduled to be heard during the shutdown. A spokesman for the federal office that oversees the immigration court said people whose cases weren't.
