Ben's struggle with anorexia began in 2009 when he was 15, but back then we had no idea that boys get eating disorders.
I've written two books about eating disorders: 'Please eat' is our story and 'When Anorexia Came To Visit' tells the stories of 20 other families battling with an eating disorder.
My blog aims to raise awareness of eating disorders in boys and help parents to identify the signs of an eating disorder.

"I want to help parents to recognise the signs of anorexia in boys and get urgent help. I want to show that recovery from an eating disorder is possible and to describe what worked for us." Bev Mattocks
