every week for six months to a year, depending how he is coming along(Something Fishy, par. 3). And he must still continue to work with a dietitian, who will periodically check on his food supply, what he are keeping in his house, and if he is eating enough. It is also essential to keep the patient s family involved. They must be involved every step of the way. When the patient is back home the family also needs to make a lot of adjustments. They too need to be watching their eating habits. It is not easy for the patient to try to eat healthy when everyone him is not. The family needs to be supportive during this time. They need to change their habits right along with their struggling family member, so they don t feel alone in their battle. The family has to watch closely to make

sure the patient isn t secretly still in his old habits. Because if not observed closely, he could very easily slip back into their old ways. The patient is required to keep a journal of what he eats every day, and put it in like a calendar form so he can see his progress throughout the month(Something Fishy, par. 5). The patient is encouraged to post this where the other family members can see it, like on the refrigerator for example, so that the family can also see the progress the patient is making. All in all the support and love from the family, will really help out in the healing process. These are some of the most commonly used methods in treating an anorexic. Hopefully after all this the patient has recovered. But still a staggering twenty percent of patients treated will

go back to being anorexic(Anorexia Nervosa and Related Eating Disorders Inc., par. 13). In conclusion, I have explained the causes of anorexia in men, the affects, and the different treatment options. Anorexia is a terrible disease. And no one should have to suffer alone. Hopefully more men will come out of hiding, realizing it s okay to have this horrible disease, and get some much deserved help. Works Cited 1)Alexander, Eliot. Sick and Tired of Being Fat.
