In a world where being overweight is not exactly attractive, certain women have pushed themselves so hard to keep the weight off that they end up on the opposite side of the spectrum -- take Lindsay Lohan's brief stint with the issue for example.

Well, HBO is ready to take a hard look at the issue and its malnourished consequences.

HBO Documentary Films Premieres Thin

On November 14, 2006 at 9pm EST, HBO Documentary Films presents Thin, an intimate look into the lives of four women suffering from an eating disorder.

Director Lauren Greenfield (author of the critically acclaimed book Girl Culture) has turned her focus on the epidemic levels disordered eating has taken in the past few decades. A disease once downplayed as a vanity issue, is now being recognized as a serious mental illness.

In Thin, Greenfield explores the various stages of recovery and downfall through group therapy sessions, mealtimes, weigh-ins and heated arguments.

In addition to Lauren being available for interviews, we have film screening opportunities, signed books and a custom resource guide available. We are currently looking for partners to help us communicate Lauren’s message. If you are interested in supporting this documentary, please contact me directly.

I dont' know about you, but I had assumed this illness had an easy prescription -- McDonald's hamburger.

Thin premieres November 14th.

Stay tuned for updates.
