This paper explores how different models of eating disorders are applied to women across ethnic groups in the United States. How Anglo-American, African-American, and Latin American cultural norms alter models of eating disorders is discussed. It is argued that although various explanations for eating disorders can be applied to those with the disorder, causes of behavior must be examined keeping cultural norms in mind.
