Teenaged girls who suffer from eating disorders find themselves in a no-win situation, in which they never seem to be thin enough. Those who aspire to the ultra-thin physique of ballet dancers or models are sometimes told by authority figures that they must lose weight in order to compete. In Slender Existence, one such young woman has been told to lose 15 pounds, which sends her into a cycle of starvation and excessive exercise. Only through professional help, the support of family and friends, and antidepressants does she begin the climb back toward health and normalcy.
