Students advocate for eating disorders awareness, healthy eating on campus

first_img(Editor’s Note: This is the second article in an investigative series on the accessibility and effectiveness of mental health resources available within the tri-campus community.)In spite of heightened discourse surrounding anxiety and depression on college campuses, many students who are afflicted with eating disorders still suffer in silence. Several Saint Mary’s students are looking to spread awareness about eating disorders and healthy eating in the hopes the College will provide more resources on campus.Senior Anne Nowalk said she considers herself an eating disorders activist and has called for expanded campus resources for students with eating disorders. Nowalk said her perception of eating disorders, and her perspective on how others view them, changed when her friend developed an eating disorder. Eating disorders are common among young women ages 18 to 24, Nowalk said, and this can become exacerbated at a place like Saint Mary’s — an all women’s college. “Something I started to realize was that there are a lack of resources and a lack of understanding about eating disorders on campus,” Nowalk said. “Based on studies done by the National Eating Disorder Association and others, we know that eating disorders are most likely present on campus. The fact that we don’t hear students talking about them shows the extreme stigmatization that is attached to having an eating disorder.”And this stigma can prove deadly, Nowalk said. “[Eating disorders have] one of the highest mortality rates for mental disorders, but that’s not really recognized by most people because there’s a stigma that an eating disorder has to do with a person being selfish or just wanting to lose weight,” she said.Saint Mary’s used to employ a registered dietician on campus, Anna Uhran Wasierski, but she left the College in 2018 and is now employed at Notre Dame. No replacement has been hired so far, yet Uhran Wasierski is still listed on the website as an active campus dietician.Saint Mary’s hosts “Love Your Body Week” annually, a week of events focused on student body positivity, but Nowalk said she feels like the week doesn’t place sufficient emphasis on eating disorder awareness. “We have ‘Love Your Body Week’ on campus in February, which is actually National Eating Disorder Awareness month, and it’s nice to have that, but over the years it’s become less and less about the knowledge of eating disorders and more about doing activities that surround a person’s overall health,” she said. “While I personally believe that we need to focus on overall health, we definitely need to be having more events on campus where students can speak up and talk about what it means to have an eating disorder.” Nowalk said she believes that it is important to maintain resources and sustain discourse about eating disorders on campus. “We are in an environment that has a competitive mindset and often showing any sort of struggle is seen as a weakness,” she said. “If we only address these topics one week during the school year, we are saying that … an eating disorder is not as important as other topics, when in reality, it intersects with almost every issue that students advocate for and talk about on our campuses.”Beyond advocacy for eating disorders, Nowalk said she feels the College can do better when it comes to supporting healthy eating. Although the College circulates guides to healthy eating in the cafes and dining hall, Nowalk said she feels these resources promote body shaming, or weight shaming, instead of healthy eating.“I noticed a pamphlet in the 1884 Cafe which discusses healthy eating … it’s a little triggering, one of the sections says ‘eat a salad every day,’ and that’s not targeting every student,” she said. “It’s vague, and there are ways in which salads can be very unhealthy or not provide you with the nutrients you need. We all need carbs, protein, vegetables and fruits, but students may feel they need to skip those in order to have a salad and that can contribute to disordered eating patterns.” Despite this, Nowalk said the pamphlet does make some good points about the importance of eating breakfast every morning. “I think it’s very good to promote the idea of not skipping breakfast because many students still skip meals in order to lose weight or avoid the ‘Freshman 15,’ but it is so vital that students eat breakfast,” she said. “I never used to go to breakfast very often, but now I go every day and I’ve definitely seen an increase in students attending, and that might be because of the menu changes, but also because of the College’s recognition that eating breakfast is an important part of students’ everyday diet.”However, many students feel that the College needs to fix the food, and not the resources, present in the dining hall. Senior Katelyn Valley said that after seeing a nutritionist on campus two years ago, they decided that she could no longer eat the food on campus.“I saw a nutritionist and she said it was very likely that the oil [Sodexo] uses is what caused me to get IBS, which is a digestive disorder,” Valley said. “And then this year I had to go on a low FODMAP diet to try to re-balance the flora in my gut to try to correct the issue.” FODMAPs are certain types of carbohydrates that have been known to cause digestive problems. A low FODMAP diet can help to reduce the amount of digestive trouble associated with these carbs, but this is another example of the obstacles in place for students with particular dietary needs on campus. All in all, Nowalk said she wants students to realize that every body is different, and that overcoming an eating disorder is both a battle and a journey. “The size of your body does not determine your worth,” Nowalk said. “Regardless of race, class, weight, height, gender identity, sexual orientation and age, eating disorders are a real issue. As a school, Saint Mary’s can do more to offer resources, and so can Notre Dame and Holy Cross.”For those who may be coping with an eating disorder, the National Eating Disorder Association’s website offers a free screening tool and helpline.

Ireland in command after bowling England out for 85

first_img… 20 wickets fall on day one at Lord’sBy Martyn HermanLONDON, England (Reuters) – Ireland enjoyed a fairytale opening day in their first ever Test match against England as they bowled out the hosts for 85 before building a healthy lead at sweltering Lord’s yesterday.The euphoria of 10 days ago after England’s nerve-jangling World Cup final win over New Zealand, turned to stunned disbelief as Ireland bowler Tim Murtagh caused mayhem.He took five for 13 from nine overs as England capitulated in 127 manic minutes, surviving only 23.4 overs – their shortest completed innings ever in terms of balls faced.Ireland, playing only their third Test match, passed England’s total before tea thanks to a free-flowing partnership between Paul Stirling and Andy Balbirnie. A flurry of wickets threatened to undo their good work as Ireland slumped from 132-2 to 149-7.Yet Kevin O’Brien hung around for 28 not out and Murtagh (16) clobbered some useful late runs as Ireland were all out for 207, a 122-run innings lead.England skipper Joe Root won the toss and elected to bat, handing Test debutant Jason Roy and Rory Burns the chance to lay down a marker for the looming Ashes series.Instead, a spot-on Ireland attack ruthlessly exposed the cracks in England’s batting as the hosts posted their lowest home total since scoring 77 against Australia in 1997. Murtagh, the London-born 37-year-old Middlesex stalwart, took lethal advantage of his local knowledge on a green-tinged Lord’s wicket and some bog-standard England batting.When Stuart Broad walked out to bat with the hosts on 43 for seven, England had lost six wickets for seven runs.ASTONISHING COLLAPSEWhite-ball specialist Roy, superb throughout the World Cup, had a let-off when Mark Adair had him plumb lbw off a no-ball. But in Murtagh’s second over Roy (5) edged to Stirling who took a low slip catch.Joe Denly looked assured for 23, but in the 10th over Test rookie Adair shaped a ball into his pads for an lbw. Burns scratched around for six but played loosely at a full Murtagh delivery and edged behind to Gary Wilson.With Root and Jonny Bairstow, two of the four England players to have played in the World Cup final, at the wicket, an England fightback was expected. It never materialised. Root (2) was squared up by Adair and was struck on both pads and not even a hopeful review could spare him.Murtagh then bowled a wafting Bairstow through the gate for a duck and two balls later Chris Woakes (0) was lbw to a ball that nipped back off the seam.Moeen Ali then edged Murtagh through to Wilson as the 37-year-old sealed his five-wicket haul. Curran attempted a counterattack but the carnage continued as Broad (3) edged Boyd Rankin, once an England player, behind.Sam Curran was snaffled for 18 at short leg off Rankin to leave England on 67-9. Olly Stone struck three boundaries in an over, as England surpassed the 77 runs they scored against West Indies in January but he was bowled for 19 as Adair wrapped things up. Ireland began steadily but Curran dismissed skipper William Porterfield (14) and James McCollum (19).Stirling and Balbirnie rode their luck but played some flashing strokes as Ireland seized control.Stuart Broad broke the partnership on 87, trapping Stirling lbw for 36. Balbirnie, who was earlier dropped off Broad, brought up his 50 in 56 balls but became Stone’s first Test victim, losing his middle stump. Stone eventually finished with three for 29, with Broad and Curran also taking three apiece.ENGLAND 1st inningsR. Burns c Wilson b Murtagh 6J. Roy c Stirling b Murtagh 5J. Denly lbw b Adair 23J.
