This article addresses the need for culturally adaptive frameworks for evidence-based interventions for eating disorders (EDs). EDs impact culturally diverse populations. Limits to current research and clinical practice are examined, which include the misguided presumption that EDs predominantly impact primarily young, White, female clients. This article explores the manifestation of EDs and disordered eating symptoms among men, while noting the systemic underrepresentation of men in ED research. Implications of this review highlight the need for evidence-based care for men and boys with EDs and the role of cultural adaptation frameworks in developing an evidence-based dialectical behavior therapy intervention for male clients with bulimia nervosa.
