How Apple TV+’s Physical Addresses Misconceptions About Eating Disorders

Naturally, a lot of the lessons Weisman learned have been put into the show. Like Sheila, Weisman understands that binging and purging isn’t necessarily about appearances, it’s more like she’s “being compelled to do a series of increasingly destructive behaviors.”

“When I would enter a binge and purge cycle, it felt totally out of my control,” she explained. “It was as if I was walking down the street and someone pulled up in a car, put a blanket over my head, and pushed me into the backseat. I was going for a ride, whether I liked it or not.”
