Managing Fame & Body Image

Did you know that 1 in 4 males suffer from an eating disorder? During the pandemic, the number of eating disorder counselling sessions supplied to men and boys increased by 113%. This is according to BEAT, the UK eating disorder charity. The quest for the perfect masculine body can influence attitude towards diet and exercise, which can quickly escalate into unhealthy behaviour. 

Join us in the latest Food for Thought episode as we sit down with James McVey, the incredibly talented guitarist and vocalist of the multi-award winning band, The Vamps.
