Not really much in terms of a story, but very factual and lots of information. Still, this is probably only going to appeal to people interested in or looking for information about eating disorders. I appreciate the list of sources on nearly every page, you clearly did your research. This was very well written although I did see some grammatical errors. Perhaps you could turn this into a story somehow, like an actual simulation where you have to help a loved one dealing with an eating disorder?

It is okay and educational. However, I think you may have downplayed the medical aspects of treatments for eating disorders. Unless it has been caught in the early stages, most cases should require medical intervention because of crisis situations. Psychological intervention is needed too, but medical care comes first because of the severity of the effects on the body from eating disorders. It could have been better with examples or accounts of people with eating disorders. This would make it a more interesting read. It it more than a little dry.

Medically this is university-worthy but for a casual reader it was like reading a well-written textbook, a living experience of how it is to live with someone with a disorder would also be useful. At uni I had a friend called Daisy who was anorexic to the point where her spine looked like a cheese grater; if the reader has to try to 'save' a friend or a family member with this illness then that provides a framework for them to have an interest in learning about the illness, causes and symptoms.

Didn't help. I have an undifferentiated ED.

This is objectively the most educational Obese simulator that has ever been published on this site; in it, you learn how to properly discontinue your ill disorder through treatment, and it also learns you the symptoms of your disorder.

With absolute candid with their statistics, this is certainly something that anyone can use.

This has plenty of information, but a bit of context, of which none is present, would be more relatable and easier to understand.

I can appreciate where your heart is in this endeavor. I can't say this is much of a story, I would've appreciated the addition of real or fictionalized accounts of cases considering the ability they have to humanize patients in the public eye, but this was informative. It's not perfect in terms of grammar, but it is well written nonetheless. Good work.
