Trying new diet challenges with friends

Sometimes adults with eating disorders socialize their disorder. They do this by always wanting to “try” some new fad diet, and making it “fun” by bringing others on board. So one month they’re trying the Whole 30 diet with a group of friends, and the next month they’re cutting all sugar with another group of friends. To the friends, it’s just a one-time, fun challenge, but to the affected individual, it’s a way to limit caloric intake without anyone really noticing—everyone else is doing it.
